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.

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...more
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

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.

“Resumir en una mirada la virgen ausencia disperta en esta soledad y, como se corta, para recuerdo de un lugar, uno de esos mágicos nenúfares cerrados que de súbito surgen envolviendo en el hueco de su blancura una nada formada de sueños intactos, de la ventura que no llegará, y de mi aliento contenido por el temor de una aparición, partir con él: tácitamente, desentrañando poco a poco sin choque, romper ilusión, sin que el crepitar de la visible pompa de espuma enroscada a mi huida no arroje a los pies de nadie que sobrevenga la semejanza transparente del rapto de mi flor ideal.” 1 likes
