Example text

We ourselves have learnt from all three of these translators, and from many others. Perhaps the search for a best method of translating Mallarmé is as illusory as the search for a best method of depicting a cube in two dimensions. Different representations will illustrate different aspects of the original; no one representation will encompass it fully. Mallarmé himself permitted a diversity of translatorial strategies. Like many writers of his generation, he was wary of free verse; but he, and other translators working with his approval, rendered poems into rhythmical prose, prose divided into separate lines, and rhymed verse.

Chronology xxxvii 1898 Writes ‘For the sole task of travelling . ’ and works on the proposed new Prelude to Herodias (including the ‘Canticle of John the Baptist’, possibly written earlier). 9 September: death of Mallarmé, at Valvins.

Like many writers of his generation, he was wary of free verse; but he, and other translators working with his approval, rendered poems into rhythmical prose, prose divided into separate lines, and rhymed verse. The present volume is similarly eclectic in approach, and contains translations of all those kinds. We have paid close attention to the English poems that he singled out for special praise, or in which he discerned a kinship with his own work––and we have studied them with particular care when, as is often the case, they do not conform to conventional ideas of what is Mallarméan.
