About This Item

New York: F.S. Crofts & Co, 1937. Hardcover. Edited by Albert Schinz. Small 8vo. Blue cloth spine and tan patterned paper over boards. xxvii, 274pp. Very good. Tight and attractive copy of the revised edition of this 1908 collection. The preface and notes are largely in English, the poems one hundred percent in the original French. A lovely copy, and seldom seen.

Synopsis

For most of his life, Victor Hugo (1802-1885) was the most famous writer in the world. His legacy includes the nineteenth century's most celebrated works of drama, fiction, memoir, and criticism. But in his day Hugo was know foremost as a poet-indeed the greatest French poet of the age. He wrote with passion about history, erotic experience, familial love, philosophy, nature, social justice, art, and mysticism. In this new bicentennial edition, acclaimed poet and translator Brooks Haxton offers an exquisite selection of Hugo's finest work: love poems, historical tableaux, elegy, and idyll, including his incomparable "Boaz Asleep," which Marcel Proust praised as the most beautiful poem of the nineteenth century.
