Editorial Reviews

Choice
"Released in the Critical Lives series, this is the best book to date on Mallarmé. Pearson adroitly integrates Mallarmé's life and works (poetry, prose, journalism, interviews, and miscellaneous social verses).Writing with a verve that mimics Mallarmé's without being precious, Pearson inserts definitions, which a specialist is likely to know, without being patronizing. . . . Recommended."
