Open Forum: Huysmans’ A rebours

Gusatve Moreau, L’Apparition 

Gustave Moreau, Salomé dansant devant Hérode

Some information about Tristan Corbière, a poet referenced in Chapter 14: http://www.ashevillepoetryreview.com/tag/tristan-corbiere. I also found an eBook of Les Amours jaunes, the only book Corbière published in his lifetime, in the original French: http://www.gutenberg.org/catalog/world/readfile?fk_files=1505940. I can understand Des Esseintes’s interest; the rhymes and rhythms are quite beautiful, though there are moments that feel, to me, sharp and out of place.
