Metz, 1844 - 1896, Paris

AT the age of seven Paul Verlaine went to Paris, where he was educated at the Lycée Bonaparte. He first came under the influence of the Parnassian School, and in 1866 published the "Poèmes saturniens," a volume which did not meet with much success. Three years later appeared the "Fêtes galantes," and in 1870 the "Bonne chanson," in which tendencies away from the Parnassians were clearly evident. While in prison for attempting to shoot a friend he published the "Romances sans paroles" (1874). After his liberation he became in turn teacher of French in England, and professor at the college at Rethel (1877). Then came the publication of "Sagesse," in 1881, in which he showed a new fervor for Catholicism. He became a leader in the new Decadent, or Symbolistic, School, and published the "Poètes maudits" in 1884, and "Jadis et naguère" the same year. But his health, undermined by his irregular Bohemian life, gave way, and from 1889 on, he went from hospital to hospital until the end came in 1896.

His literary theories are touched upon in the "Art poetique" given below. His poetry suggests more than it expresses, and, unlike the verse of the Parnassians, it resembles music more than painting, and appeals rather to the emotions than to the intellect. He was one of the most original poets of the century.
