9781331602156: The Complete Works of Theophile Gautier, Vol. 2 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Complete Works of Theophile Gautier, Vol. 2

But if Gautier could not and did not seek to wholly reverse the judgments of Boileau, he succeeded in making the readers of his own and of succeeding generations appreciate in these minor poets many a forgotten beauty, and in giving such vivid reproduc tions of the men and their times that every one, Cyrano de Bergerac, saint-amant, Scarron, and the others actually live in his pages. He has written criticisms keen, bright, interesting; full of brilliant passages, of evocations of bygone times, of restoration of forgotten modes Of thought; he has made intel ligible the fame which most of these men enjoyed in their day, - and all this without once wearying the reader, but, on the contrary, maintaining his interest and exciting his curiosity.

About the Author:

(1811-1872). Theophile Gautier debute dans la peinture, puis se fait poete par admiration pour Victor Hugo.
