Article

Jules Laforgue is one of the French ‘poètes maudits’ of the late nineteenth century. Maintaining a certain distance from literary movements, he developed a unique style, mixing the expression of pain with humor and sometimes satire. Often compared to Tristan Corbière (1845–1875), he is considered a symbolist for his Mysticism and the use of free verse, especially in his Derniers vers (1890). He is also considered to be a precursor of the Fantaisistes for the oral character of his poetry.
