An Anthology of Belgian Symbolist Poets (Belgian Francophone Library)

An Anthology of Belgian Symbolist Poets (Belgian Francophone Library)


initially released in 1992, this bilingual anthology represents the vigour, range, and originality with which the Symbolist stream used to be grafted in Belgium. Cultivating an aesthetics of hallucination and spatial paradigms of the internal international, the fin de siècle Belgian poets reworked the canal towns and landscapes in their place of birth into lasting magnets of the mind's eye. The Belgian Symbolist poems are vessels of passage to visionary geographical regions, demonstrating the permeability of internal and outer fact.
