Overview

Caught up in the wave that swept out of France and across Europe at the turn of the 20th century, little two-tongued Belgium brought its own particular nuance and characteristics to the Symbolist evocation and distillation of mood. Friedman (modern languages, Winthrop U., South Carolina) compiles poems of 17 Belgium poets from the 1880s to the 1920s on facing pages of French and English. He includes biographical sketches. The anthology was first published in 1992 in the Garland World Literature in Translation series. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Table of Contents

Belgian Symbolism: A Poetry of Place and Displacement
The indolent mists of autumn
Deceased are the patrician mansions
The ancient church hovers
My city, beloved sister
The chamber, sad and weary
Silence: it is the voice which trails
At first, the aquarium seems not to be alive
The long line of streetlamps
The Night is alone, like a beggar
Sweet is the room
During those hours of sad evening
At evening, they appear
Water, for the sufferer
O snow, the sweet sound
The Corpse
The Revolt
The Blade
The Ill
The Rain
Infinitely
Fatal Flower
To Die
London
Madman's Song
Tenebrae
Vesperal
The Rock

They killed three sweet little girls

Salome
Gaze into our depths
Place your pale diadem
My resonant angels came
Do you still remember
But one night Venus came
Close now, magic ring
The wave is shivering
The radiant fruit of gold shimmers
Be absolved by my decree
Dove! Dove! Enchanted Dove
But how to understand and how to name you
I crossed the ardent forest
O God, who could be there
Through the happiness of twilight
Along the pale waters
I say, teach me who you are, Azrael
O death, dust of stars
