Like Poe, Laforgue has been a more influential poet abroad than at home. His innovatory handling of free verse, for example, was an inspiration to the young T.S.

Overview

Like Poe, Laforgue has been a more influential poet abroad than at home. His innovatory handling of free verse, for example, was an inspiration to the young T.S. Eliot, who was also drawn to his tone of urban wit and the way his poetry, part symbolist and part impressionist, reflected the uncertainties of modern city life. Peter Dale captures the resourceful, energy and panache of Laforgue's poetry in translations which are as playful, wild, clear, obscure and impossible as the French poems.
