Paul Verlaine (1844-1896) is one of the greatest of French poets, the most melodious and purest of versifiers. The story of his tempestuous life, his passions, his flights abroad and wanderings, depicts him as an extraordinary personality. Born under the sign of Saturn, which, in his own words, brought him "much misery and many woes", torn between Mathilde, "his little wife", and Rimbaud, "the infernal husband", he tries to unravel the mystery of the poetic vocation. For him poetry may have been a blessing or a debauchery, a "degradation" or wisdom, musical perfection or a sweeping force, but it was above all the surest way to know the world.
The writer Jean-Baptiste Baronian weaves into a single whole the man, the life, the poetical works, in order to give the reader a key to the soul and the verses of one the most contradictory, but certainly one of the unquestionable, masters of literary art.
