By Donald Flanell Friedman, Donald Flanell Friedman

Initially released in 1992, this bilingual anthology represents the vigour, range, and originality with which the Symbolist circulation used to be grafted in Belgium. Cultivating an aesthetics of hallucination and spatial paradigms of the interior international, the fin de siècle Belgian poets remodeled the canal towns and landscapes in their fatherland into lasting magnets of the mind's eye. The Belgian Symbolist poems are vessels of passage to visionary nation-states, demonstrating the permeability of internal and outer fact

Sample text

Lingeringly, it unravels, since yesterday evening, Hanging in heavy, soaked rags, In the taciturn, black sky, It unravels, patient and slow, Upon the pathways, since yesterday evening, Upon the roads and the winding alleys, Continuous. The length of the byways, Which lead from the woods to the outskirts, By roads interminably twisted, They move on, grieving, dripping, steaming, The yoke-teams, with wagon-cloth bulging; In the even, beaten tracks, So ceaselessly parallel, That, at night, they seem to meet in the heavens, The water trickles, for hours on end; And the trees cry their tears and the dwellings, Soaked by the long rain, Tenaciously, vague.

Elle dit: «Les doux abris que j’ai Pour ceux de qui le coeur est trop découragé. » Ah! la molle attirance et quelle voix divine! Car, pour leur fièvre, c’est la fraîcheur d’un bon lit! Et beaucoup, aimantés par cet appel propice, Perclus, entrent dans l’Eau comme on entre à l’hospice, Puis meurent. L’Eau les lave et les ensevelit Dans ses courants aussi frais que de fines toiles; Et c’est enfin vraiment pour eux la Bonne Mort. Ce pendant que, le soir, autour du corps qui dort, L’Eau noire allume un grand catafalque d’étoiles.

Sans qu’une aiguille, à son cadran, ne bouge, Un grand beffroi masqué de rouge, La regarde, comme quelqu’un Immensément de triste et de défunt. Elle est morte de trop savoir, De trop vouloir sculpter la cause, Dans le socle de granit noir, De chaque être et de chaque chose. Elle est morte, atrocement, D’un savant empoisonnement, Elle est morte aussi d’un délire Vers un absurde et rouge empire. Ses nerfs ont éclaté, Tel soir illuminé de fête Qu’elle sentait déjà le triomphe flotter Comme des aigles, sur sa tête.
