Recommends it for: Those who dance to the sound of words
Recommended to Dolors by: Stephen & Emilie
Shelves: poetry, read-in-2014
To say that Mallarmé’s poetry possesses an uncanny musicality is a complete understatement. Never an amalgamation of harmonized symbols, distilled formality and nuanced obliquity experimented with the limits of Myth, Beauty, Absence, Sterility and Death so exquisitely before. Not until the poet allowed himself to be carried away by the flow of language or by insinuating visions more reminiscent of philosophy than reason that a pure aesthetic canon of light could unveil bodies, caress objects and ...more

I've read this when I was 18 and looking for something to help me through my Baudelaire withdrawal. Mallarmé's first poems were satisfying enough, being very baudelairesque in nature. My favorite from that era is Les Fenêtres, a poem about a hospital's windows. It is true that a poem can profoundly influence a life: this one influenced my life as a physician that worked for some time in a hospital.
But then, things got really complicated. Mallarmé's mature poems are an hermetic world of perfect m

(Well..., I read this -- I'm sure it's important -- but I understood none of it. The one star is not for poor Mallarmé, but for this edition, which is pretty worthless.)

I have the book in my hands - the goodreads photo is from some other (unconnected) book. This book is 34 pages in a large format, published New Writers' Press (in Dublin)/The Menard Press, ISBN 0951375318. It contains only 15 poems, and the translations are quite loose, I believe. There is a brief introduction and some notes, and

Io fuggo e mi attacco a tutte le vetrate
Dove si volge il dorso alla vita e al destino,
E nel vetro, lavato dall'eterne rugiade,
Che l'Infinito indora col suo casto mattino,

Mi contemplo e mi vedo angelo! e muoio, e torno
- Che il cristallo sia l'arte o la mistica ebbrezza -
A nascer, col mio sogno diadema al capo intorno,
Dove, in cieli anteriori, fiorisce la Bellezza.

Best Mallarme in English.

This is really exciting especially with regards to Kristeva's idea of the poetic function of language as a means of overcoming the systems of oppression and eventually coming into contact with the abject. Otherness, absence rather than presence, underlying psychological drives are done so well here and the submarine quality of the searching throughout these poems for 'it' are exquisite. At the same time Mallarme is such a strong writer that the systems of poetry are just as prominent as the poet ...more
Jul 12, 2015 Sebastian rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
Esta antología consiste de más de veinte variaciones sobre pocos temas poéticos. Las variaciones en la forma son extraordinarias, y la musicalidad se impone sobre la métrica. No sé si hubiera valido la pena leerlo si no fuera una edición bilingüe; pero la traducción es competente, y en algunos casos imaginativa y sorprendente. Queda muy bien, intercalado a manera de homenaje, un soneto en traducción de Octavio Paz, que contrasta en estilo y vocabulario con el resto y evidencia cuánto hay de coau ...more
