Words like you have never read them! My dear and revered Theophile Gautier is the greatest poet ever. That's it! Poetry can only be read in the language it's been written. However, even though you don't understand French, the music of the words might be audible, if you're lucky or musician! Let's listen to:La rose thé by Théophile Gautier."La plus délicate des rosesEst, à coup sûr, la rose-thé.Son bouton aux feuilles mi-closesDe carmin à peine est teinté.On dirait une rose blancheQu'aura [...]

« La petite Marie est morte,Et son cercueil est si peu longQu'il tient sous le bras qui l'emporteComme un étui de violon. »– Les Joujoux de la morte« Rhamsès, un jour mon bloc superbe,Où l'éternité s'ébréchait,Roula fauché comme un brin d'herbe,Et Paris s'en fit un hochet. »– Nostalgies d'obélisques« Le monde est méchant, ma petite :Avec son sourire moqueurIl dit qu'à ton côté palpiteUne montre en place du coeur.– Pourtant ton sein ému s'élèveEt s'abaisse comme la mer, [...]

"Elle tressaille à mon approche, / Et son regard, triste et charmant, / Sur le mien d'un air de reproche, / Se fixe douloureusement."

Une poésie d'une grande fraîcheur, finement ciselée, qui chante la nature, la beauté et les souvenirs dans des octosyllabes très vivants, où la personnification est reine. J'ai particulièrement apprécié «Le château des souvenirs», où la mémoire est représentée par un vieux château: l'approche, l'entrée, la galerie de tableaux; «Étude de mains», où sont décrites successivement la main de marbre d'une sculpture classique et celle du truand Lacenaire, conservée dans le formo [...]

This was a disappointing collection, as I have enjoyed Gautier's fiction in translation, as well as some poems I've come across in other anthologies. The translator for this edition was Agnes Lee, and I'm not sure who's at fault here, but these poems were dull, in a style that I believe was archaic at the time of publication (1906), that sapped any life these poems may have had in their original language. I would recommend avoiding this freely available version at all costs, and look for a bett [...]

Enamels and Cameos is a nice collection of poems by Gautier. There are fragrances of the exotic here, meditations on beauty and visions of phantasms; marble statues, paintings, flowers, luxuries and carnivals. It's easy to surrender yourself to these heady poetic perfumes!
