English in Mallarmé by Peter Manson

English in Mallarmé

Manson reveals English words hiding within the original French text of Mallarmé’s poems.

“These pages are strewn with shreds of words: unevenly dispersed, semantically uncomfortable in each other’s company, they stumble together to make momentary meaning before drifting apart on the white space of the page.”

Readers in search of more conventional translations of Mallarmé’s Poésies may prefer The Poems in Verse from Miami University Press.  I’m just saying.
