Description
In 1817, at the late age of 33, actress and Romantic poet Marceline Desbordes—the only woman counted by Paul Verlaine among his poètes maudits, which included Victor Hugo, Charles Baudelaire, and Alfred de Vigny—married Prosper Valmore, a fellow actor who brought love and stability to her tumultuous life. Such stability was short-lived, however; when she met Henri de Latouche, an influential man of letters, they began a passionate affair. In Anne Plantagenet's fictionalized biography of Desbordes-Valmore, the two are lovers for only a year, yet their relationship survives through letters and memory, inspiring Marceline's work and leading her to create some of the most beautiful poetry in French literature. The book includes a selection of Desbordes-Valmore's poems in the original French and in English translation.
