Summary
This book explores the relations between poetry and politics in France in the last decade of the nineteenth century. It focuses on Decadence, Symbolism, and the anti-Symbolist reaction—on poetry and poetic theory, literary polemic, journalism, and reviewing culture. It also focuses on radical politics of the left and right and what might be called ‘avant-garde’ poetries. It contains a substantial section on Mallarmé. The anarchist politics of many Symbolist poets is a reaction to their own isolation, and to poetry’s anxious relations with the public. Too ‘difficult’ to be widely read (and difficulty has its own politics), Symbolist poets react to the loss of poetry’s centrality among the arts by delegating their radicalism to prose: they can call, in prose, for the overthrow of the state and support anarchist bombers, while writing poems about dribbling fountains and dazzling sunsets for each other. The book demonstrates the connections between the anti-Symbolist reaction of the école romane of 1891 (in which Charles Maurras first made his name), and the far-right cultural politics of Action française in the early twentieth century. Another aspect of the book that redefines many of the debates about late nineteenth-century French poetry is the way it examines the political engagement(s) of the Symbolists in an epoch when the French intellectuel as a national icon was being forged.--
