About this title:

Synopsis: Gerard de Nerval's sonnets Les Chimeres were first published as a group in 1854, a year before his suicide at the age of forty-six. The poems were nearly a dozen years in the making, and their genius was slow to be accepted. Now they are generally regarded as a key work of nineteenth century poetry, linking romanticism and symbolism. This bilingual edition is complemented by two essays; the first on Nerval's symbolic method by Richard Holmes, the second on the problems of translation by Peter Jay.

About the Author: Peter Jay has published a collection of poems, `Shifting Frontiers', a version of `The Song of Songs', and translations of selections from the poetry of Nichita Stanescu, Stefan Aug. Doinas and János Pilinszky. He edited `The Greek Anthology' in translation for Penguin Classics, and is completing a volume of Sappho and other early Greek lyric poets.

Richard Holmes is the award-winning author of `Shelley: the Pursuit'. He has also published biographical-critical studies of Chatterton and Coleridge. He has edited a selection of Shelley's mainly prose writings, `Shelley on Love', and translated a collection of ghost stories, `My Fantoms', by Nerval's friend, Théophile Gautier. `Footsteps', his adventures of a romantic biographer, was published in 1985.
