Just out from OUP is Stéphane Mallarmé: Collected Poems and other verse (new translations by EH and AM Blackmore; parallel French text). Mallarmé (1842-1898) is known to be one of the most radical and innovative and nineteenth-century; his work still strikes as magnificently modern. He is also known to be difficult. Leader of the Symbolist movement in poetry with Paul Verlaine, and at the centre of a group of Paris-based writers like Proust, Gide and Paul Valéry, Mallarmé infuriated his peers, and his friends like Edgar Degas, with his insistence on his theories of "pure poetry". More to follow on Mallarmé when I've read this and read up!
