Introduction [in PDF format] | Table of Contents [PDF only]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"In these Poems Under Saturn, Verlaine's early 'self I was then' springs out strangely and inventively. Yet they feel like now."--Mary Ann Caws, editor of The Yale Anthology of Twentieth-Century French Poetry

"This is a historical event in the translation of lyric verse--the first valuable English version of Paul Verlaine's first and best book."--Richard Howard, author of Inner Voices: Selected Poems, 1963-2003

"Attentive both to precise and shaded meanings, Kirchwey's careful translations find the true Verlaine in verse respectful of the original rhyme schemes."--Martin Sorrell, University of Exeter
