Stephane Mallarme (French)(1842-1898)
(quotes from a poet)
A throw of the dice will never eliminate chance.
"In reading, a lonely quiet concert is given to our minds; all our mental faculties will be present in this symphonic exaltation."
Every soul is a melody which needs renewing.
"The poetic act consists of suddenly seeing that an idea splits up into a number of equal motifs and of grouping them; they rhyme."
Dreams have as much influence as actions.
"The pure work implies the disappearance of the poet as speaker, who hands over to the words."
