ISBN-10: 0820455946

ISBN-13: 9780820455945

Initially released in 1992, this bilingual anthology represents the vigour, variety, and originality with which the Symbolist flow used to be grafted in Belgium. Cultivating an aesthetics of hallucination and spatial paradigms of the internal international, the fin de siècle Belgian poets remodeled 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 nation-states, demonstrating the permeability of internal and outer truth.

Sample text

Donald Flanell Friedman: Belgian Symbolism, an Anthology page 13 Georges Rodenbach “La vieille église rêve . ” from Le Miroir du Ciel Natal La vieille église rêve en un vaste silence; La ville morte, avec sa tristesse, est autour; On en sent, comme d’un malade, la présence, Et tout est assombri par l’ombre de la tour. Il règne dans les nefs un jour de demi-deuil; On entend, au dehors, pleurer les hirondelles; Seuls les vitraux d’azur gardent un peu d’orgueil; Et la Vierge pâlit dans ses vieilles dentelles.

Or n’est-ce pas l’image du sommeil humain Où, dans l’eau du cerveau qu’on croit vidée et nue, Des rêves sous-marins sont sans cesse en chemin, Ah! cette vie occulte, et qui se continue! “Les réverbères en enfilade . ” from Le Miroir du Ciel Natal Les réverbères en enfilade Ont allumé leurs pensives veilleuses Quotidiennes, Formant un jeu d’ombres silencieuses Qui vont et viennent . . La Ville est-elle plus malade Le soir? On dirait qu’il fait plus noir; Le vent a l’air de plaindre Quelqu’un qui ne guérira plus; Une petite cloche tinte Le dernier angélus; L’air est sonore à cause du silence; Les peupliers, dont la cime s’élance, Ont peur de faire trop de bruit; Et les passants embrument leur marche Comme dans une chambre, autour d’un lit .

From Le Régne du Silence Silence: c’est la voix qui se traîne, un peu lasse, De la dame de mon Silence, à très doux pas Effeuillant les lis blancs de son teint dans la glace; Convalescent à peine, et qui voit tout là-bas Les arbres, les passants, des ponts, une rivière, Où cheminent de grands nuages de lumière, Mais qui, trop faible encore, est prise tout à coup D’un ennui de la vie et comme d’un dégoût Et,—plus subtile, étant malade,—mi-brisée, Dit: «Le bruit me fait mal; qu’on ferme la croisée .
