Overview

The Name of the Poet is an examination of the use of names and the art of naming in the works of Stephane Mallarme. Maintaining an independent critical, and self-critical, approach, the author elaborates a 'theory of the name' from within the Mallarmean text, rather than through the application of an external theory. The work provides the reader with new ways of thinking about Mallarme's 'development' and about poetry's attempt to break out of an embattled position in the last decades of the nineteenth century. This book should interest anyone concerned with poetics, with notions of authorship, with language and linguistics, as well as with modern French literature generally.

Editorial Reviews

Journal of European Studies
“Michael Temple is to be congratulated on an interesting project.” –Journal of European Studies, March 1999
Modern and Contemporary France
“Published during the centenary year of Mallarmé's death, this collection of carefully thought-out literary and philosophical encounters brings together 10 innovative analyses. It is the process of cultural influence, quite as much as Mallarmé's gloriously present oeuvre and persona that informs the incisive and fascinating contributions.” –Modern and Contemporary France, Volume 7(3) 1999
