About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1947, this book presents a comprehensive study regarding the Poèmes barbares (1862) of Leconte de Lisle. Two key areas are explored: 'what attracted Leconte de Lisle to the history and mythology of the barbarian races, by what methods and in accordance with what ideas he transformed his material into poetry'. The text is organised in reflection of the different ethnic and tribal groups contained within the poems. Detailed notes are incorporated throughout and a bibliography is also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in French poetry and literary criticism.
