Summary


The poems in this book, first published in 1890, present not only a poet searching for a voice, but also a female poet searching for a voice while breaking down rules of both versification and gender-determined source of expression. They went straight to the heart of the male-dominated poetry of the time and effectively threatened its existence.


Rythmes Pittoresques Summary

Rythmes Pittoresques by Marie Krysinska


The poems in Rythmes pittoresques, first published in 1890, present not only a poet searching for a voice, but also a female poet searching for a voice while breaking down rules of both versification and gender-determined source of expression. They went straight to the heart of the male-dominated poetry of the time and effectively threatened its existence.



Of the group of poets who were the first to write free-verse poetry in French - Marie Krysinska, Arthur Rimbaud, Jules Laforgue, Gustave Kahn - only Marie Krysinska (1857-1908) has not received critical recognition. Although it was quickly dismissed by critics simply because it was written by a female poet, Krysinska's poetry gives insight into the creation of a new form of feminine expression as well as the persecution of the female artist viewed by her largely male peers, readership and competitors.




Rythmes Pittoresques Reviews

"Seth Whidden's flawless edition of Marie Krysinska's first collection of poetry thus is timely and needed." (Nineteenth-Century French Studies, Volume 33, Nos. 1 & 2, Fall-Winter 2004-2005) "Whidden's balanced approach to biographical issues prepares his equally careful exposition of Krysinska's critical reception in her day." (Nineteenth-Century French Studies, Volume 33, Nos. 1 & 2, Fall-Winter 2004-2005) "This book provides an excellent resource for teaching and independent research ..." (Nineteenth-Century French Studies, Volume 33, Nos. 1 & 2, Fall-Winter 2004-2005)
