"Texte enregistré. "Ce à quoi nous devons viser surtout est que, dans le poème, les mots - qui sont déjà assez eux pour ne plus recevoir d'impression du dehors - se reflètent les uns sur les autres jusqu' à paraître ne plus avoir leur couleur propre, mais n'être que les transitions d'une gamme."

(This is a page from the book "Domain of Images" about the pictorial sense of the pages.)

...some pages can be read as a viewer might interpret naturalistic pictures: the passage in which Mallarmé invokes a shipwreck is set in a falling motif, and isolated lines are vignettes of the scenes they describe. The line describing man as “bitter prince of the reef” is itself an atoll, and there are plumes, sails, and other shapes in Mallarmé's images and in his typesetting. Those are, in a way, introduc

J'ai lu le poème de Mallarmé, «Un coup de dés jamais n'abolira le hasard». Je n'aime pas du tout. Quelle satisfaction cet éminent poète a-t-il pu éprouver à pondre ce galimatias? Etait-il souffrant, tombé sur la tête? Cela restera pour moi un mystère, et je ne vais pas passer mon temps à essayer de le percer. Cette oeuvre a au moins une importance historique, on sent en elle pointer les tombereaux d'âneries sans queue ni tête que la poésie d'avant-garde va désormais se sentir tenue de faire ...more

Mallarmé wrote a piece named A Roll Of The Dice (referring to his skepticism on the success of its creation), which harnesses the way letters are put on a page for poetic effect. Instead of printing the text line by line, he places pieces of text here and there, scattered in order to catch the eye.
He was inspired a lot by Wagner, and by listening to orchestra, so like the differing placement of instruments in a performance, position can change the recipients experience.

Mallarmé is notably diffi

"SI C'ÉTAIT LE NOMBRE CE SERAIT LE HASARD RIEN N'AURA EU LIEU QUE LE LIEU EXCEPTÉ PEUT-ÊTRE UNE CONSTELLATION"

"Toute pensée émet un Coup de Dés" comme si dans cette toute-puissante contingence, nous étions livrés aux flots, aux tourbillons et aux gouffres. Combien de pensées? Combien de coups de dés? Quel Nombre? HASARD. Infini. L'art et la plume. L'Art.

My favorite encounter of the past year & beyond ... Robert Bononno and Jeff Clark's scrupulous, gorgeous translation & (just as important) arrangement/presentation of this key but forbidding Modernist text is a revelation.

Very interesting book design, and interesting idea for the poetry, but the actual writing was too random (being, you know, the point).

Stéphane Mallarmé (French: [stefan malaʁme]; 18 March 1842 – 9 September 1898), whose real name was Étienne Mallarmé, was a French poet and critic. He was a major French symbolist poet, and his work anticipated and inspired several revolutionary artistic schools of the early 20th century, such as Dadaism, Surrealism, and Futurism.
