Overview

Originally published in 1992, this bilingual anthology represents the vigor, diversity, and originality with which the Symbolist movement was grafted in Belgium. Cultivating an aesthetics of hallucination and spatial paradigms of the inner world, the fin de siècle Belgian poets transformed the canal cities and landscapes of their homeland into lasting magnets of the imagination. The Belgian Symbolist poems are vessels of passage to visionary realms, demonstrating the permeability of inner and outer reality.
