    Verlaine, Paul

  1. Author: Verlaine, Paul
    Genre: poetry
    Note Relating to Cather: George Seibel says of his and Cather's translating French works: "We plunged into vats of color like Theophile Gautier's Une Nuit de Cleopatre, and scaled towers of alexandrines in Victor Hugo's Hernani. Verlaine and Baudelaire were among the poets we discovered, Bourget and Huysmans among the novelists."

    Date: 1867

    Note Relating to Cather: On the death of Verlaine: "Oysters do not grow pearls under normal conditions nor do men write great poems. The finest things in this world do not always grow like cabbages. Things like Verlaine's Poemes Saturniens need conditions of their own."

    Title: Romances sans paroles
    Date: 1874
    Genre: poetry
    Note Relating to Cather: "He called one of his greatest volumes Romances Without Words, and indeed they are almost that. He created a new verbal art of communicating sensations not only by the meaning of words, but of their relation, harmony and sound."
