Article

Dead at thirty, and author of a barely-noticed book of verses printed for hire by a firm specializing in erotica, the small-town eccentric and invalid Tristan Corbière (1845-1875) was destined for oblivion. But Paul Verlaine’s short book Les Poètes maudits (1878) put him in the company of Rimbaud, Mallarmé and Villiers de l’Isle-Adam, and ensured that he would continue to be read.
