About this item

French poetry was indelibly altered in the modern era, at both the thematic and formal levels, by the sudden appearance of a revolting aesthetic, argues Shinabargar, meaning both the gesture of active revolt and the grotesque subject matter that, introduced into the lyric by Romanticism, became increasingly central to the work of succeeding poets. So much is widely known, he concedes, but also goes on to propose that while this aesthetic was initially highly self-conscious and controlled by the Romantics, it should be recognized in later manifestations as an ultimately anarchic if not autonomous source of textual creation that ultimately led to Mallarmé's famous "crisis of verse."
