"A fine, formal translation of the best poems of France's founder of the symbolist movement."—St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"It's rare to find a rewarding translation of a masterwork, particularly a collection of groundbreaking poetry. . . .

Shapiro's interpretations set the standard for future English translations."—Virginia Quarterly Review
