Stéphane Mallarmé

Sthéphane Mallarmé (Paris, 1842 – Valvins, France, 1898). French poet, creator of an obscure and ambitious poetic opus, his work anticipates the shift of poetry towards modernity, his influence still being present nowadays. Misunderstood in his time, Mallarmé handles words with truly alchemical devotion, searching for their creative force.
