30 Mar

Paul Verlaine, born 30 March 1844 and died 8 January 1896, was a French poet associated with the Symbolist movement. He is considered one of the greatest representatives of the fin de siècle in international and French poetry.

Writing quotes:

  1. The poet is a madman lost in adventure.
  2. I am the Empire at the end of the decadence.
  3. A poem is really a kind of machine for producing the poetic state by means of words.
