About the Author:

Roger Pearson is a Professor of French at Oxford University and Fellow of Queen's College..

Review:

What makes Pearson a stimulating critic as well as enjoyable to read is that his approach sacrifices nothing of the complexity and texture of Mallarme, nothing of the poetry's ability to surprise and unsettle. Pearson's prose is nuanced, graceful and witty... Mallarme and Circumstance is a work of intellectual sympathy with a writer for whom poetry alone was able to make sense of a world which "has no intrinsic pattern". * Patrick McGuinness, Times Literary Supplement *

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2004. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Following his Unfolding Mallarme: The Development of a Poetic Art, this book is the second in Roger Pearson s authoritative two-volume study of the work of Stephanie Mallarme (1842-1898), and the first comprehensive study of Mallarme s poetry of circumstance in any language. For Mallarme, in a world without God, the role of the poet is to break the silence with language and to confer upon the contingency of circumstance a therapeutic semblance of formal and semantic pattern. Literature provides a translation of silence , intimate galas in which the mysterious drama of the human condition is performed for and by the reader on the stage of the verse poem, the prose poem, and what Mallarme calls the poeme critique . In Part 1, Pearson examines the prose poems within the context of Mallarme s writing about the theatre. In Part II, he focuses on the circumstanzas - the famous Tombeaux , Hommages , Eventails , and vers de circonstance - in which Mallarme invests the quotidian with the glorious lie of poetry. In a series of close readings Pearson demonstrates how complex poetic structures, and especially the sonnet, may serve to guide the human search for meaning and shape our anguish in a ceremony of the Book.
