Collected Poems and Other Verse

Stéphane Mallarmé
E.H. Blackmore, A. M. Blackmore, and Elizabeth McCombie

Oxford World's Classics

  • This volume includes parallel French text and English translations and is the most comprehensive collection of Mallarmé's poetry ever published in English.
  • Mallarmé is one of the founders of modern European poetry and a key figure in modernism.
  • For the first time in any language, Mallarmé's Poésies (his major collection of verse) is printed in the last arrangement known to have been approved by the author. Prose poems, uncollected verse, and the unclassifiable Un coup de dés are also included. Original spelling, punctuation, and lineation have been preserved throughout.
  • The translations are the first to be based on an up-to-date French text and contain over 20 items that have never previously been translated.
  • The Introduction provides a clear, wide-ranging survey of Mallarmé's work and deals fully with the difficulties that may face readers approaching it for the first time. The notes incorporate recent research and supply French texts and English translations of major variant drafts.
