Poet Jules Laforgue (1860-1887) is considered one of the creators of modernism: part-symbolist, part post-impressionist, he was one of the first poets to write in free verse. He heavily influenced such modern poets as T.S. Eliot and Ezra Pound. This is a completely revised and greatly augmented version of Patricia Terry's now classic 1958 edition of this work. Fully bilingual edition (French-English) Terry fully captures Laforgues intricate word play, puns, and rhythm in a way lacking in many modern translations. Great introduction to this poet.
