Overview

1842. The author derived the idea for his poem, The Salamandrine, from the following quote: Our fathers being true philosophers and speaking to God face to face, complained to Him of the wretched fate of these people; and God, whose mercy is illimitable, remembered Him that it was not impossible to find a remedy for this evil. He made known to them that in the same manner as man, by the alliance which he has contracted with God, has been made a participator of the divinity; so the Sylphs, the Gnomes, the Nymphs, and the Salamanders, by the alliance which they may contract with man, can be made participators of man's immortality. Thus a Nymph or a Sylphide becomes immortal and capable of the bliss to which we aspire, when she is happy enough to marry one of the wise; and a Gnome or a Sylph ceases to be mortal from the moment that he marries one of the daughters of men.
