Leaving Parnassus : the lyric subject in Verlaine and Rimbaud by Seth Adam Whidden( )

11 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leaving Parnassus: The Lyric Subject in Verlaine and Rimbaud considers how the crisis of the lyric subject in the middle of the nineteenth century in France is a direct response to the aesthetic principles of Parnassian poetry, which dominated the second half of the century much more than critics often think. The poets considered here rebel against the strict confines of traditional and contemporary poetry and attempt to create radically new discursive practices. Specifically, the close readings of poems apply recent studies of subjectivity in poetry and focus on the works of Paul Verlaine and Arthur Rimbaud to see how each subverts the dominant tradition of French poetry in a unique way. Whereas previous studies considered isolated aspects of each poet's lyric subject, Leaving Parnassus shows that the situation of the lyric is a source of subversion throughout the poets' entire work, and as such it is crucial to our full understanding of their respective innovations."--Jacket

Rimbaud : complete works, selected letters : a bilingual edition by Arthur Rimbaud( )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The enfant terrible of French letters, Jean-Nicholas-Arthur Rimbaud (1854-91) was a defiant and precocious youth who wrote some of the most remarkable prose and poetry of the nineteenth century, all before leaving the world of verse by the age of twenty-one. More than a century after his death, the young rebel-poet continues to appeal to modern readers as much for his turbulent life as for his poetry; his stormy affair with fellow poet Paul Verlaine and his nomadic adventures in eastern Africa are as iconic as his hallucinatory poems and symbolist prose. The first translation of the poet's complete works when it was published in 1966, Rimbaud: Complete Works, Selected Letters introduced a new generation of Americans to the alienated genius - among them the Doors's lead singer Jim Morrison, who wrote to translator Wallace Fowlie to thank him for rendering the poems accessible to those who "don't read French that easily." Forty years later, the book remains the only side-by-side bilingual edition of Rimbaud's complete poetic works. Thoroughly revising Fowlie's edition, Seth Whidden has made changes on virtually every page, correcting errors, reordering poems, adding previously omitted versions of poems and some letters, and updating the text to reflect current scholarship; left in place are Fowlie's literal and respectful translations of Rimbaud's complex and nontraditional verse. Whidden also provides a foreword that considers the heritage of Fowlie's edition and adds a bibliography that acknowledges relevant books that have appeared since the original publication. On its fortieth anniversary, Rimbaud remains the most authoritative - and now, completely up-to-date - edition of the young master's entire poetic ouvre." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/enhancements/fy0623/2005041859-d.html
Authority in crisis in French literature, 1850-1880 by Seth Adam Whidden( )

14 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Considering the crises of literary authority in nineteenth-century French literature against the backdrop of the Second Empire (1852-1870) and the aftermath of the bloody Paris Commune of 1871, Seth Whidden focuses on the phenomena - literary collaboration, parody, destabilized poetic form, the substitution of one poetic or narrative voice with that of the many - that enabled challenges to the traditional status of the writer and, by extension, the political authority that it reflected"--
Arthur Rimbaud by Seth Adam Whidden( Book )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before he had turned twenty one, Arthur Rimbaud (1854-1891) had upended the house of French poetry and left it in shambles. What makes Rimbaud's poetry important, argues Seth Whidden, is part of what makes his life so compelling: rebellion, audacity, creativity, and exploration. Written for general readers and students of literature alike, Arthur Rimbaud presents the original damed poet who continues to captivate readers, artists and writers all over the world."-- Provided by publisher
Rythmes pittoresques by Marie Krysinska( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in French and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The poems in Rythmes pittoresques, first published in 1890, present not only a poet searching for a voice, but also a female poet searching for a voice while breaking down rules of both versification and gender-determined sources of expression. They went straight to the heart of the male-dominated poetry of the time and effectively threatened its existence. Of the group of poets who were the first to write free-verse poetry in French--Marie Krysinska, Arthur Rimbaud, Jules Laforgue, Gustave Kahn--only Marie Krysinska (1857-1908) has not received critical recognition. Although it was quickly dismissed by critics simply because it was written by a female poet, Krysinska's poetry gives insight into the creation of a new form of feminine expression as well as the persecution of the female artist viewed by her largely male peers, readership, and competitors

"D'origine polonaise, Marie Krysinska (1857-1908) compte parmi les premiers poeètes à avoir exploré le vers libre en France à la fin du XIXe siècle. Seule femme admise dans le groupe littèraire des 'Hydropathes, ' elle a participé activement à de nombreux cercles littéraires et artistiques, et animé les soirées du cabaret 'Le Chat noir' dès 1881. Le présent ouvrage offre un choix de poèmes tirés de ses trois recueils (Rythmes pittoresques, 1890 ; Joies errantes, 1894 ; Intermèdes, 1903) et de textes critiques. Ses poèmes, d'une grande diversitè thématique présentent notamment un traitement remarquable des figures de femmes. Dans ses études de critique littéraire et artistique (1891-1904), Marie Krysinska affirme avec vigueur la cohérence de son projet poétique, et porte un regard perspicace sur la vie intellectuelle de son temps
