French Symbolism: French Symbolism (approx. ) was a literary movement in the 19 th century, which eventually made its way into art and theater. French Symbolism is what bridged the gap between Romanticism and Modernism.   In the Romantic period it was taken for granted that the intellectual and artistic achievement of ancient Greece and Rome was one of the foundations of western culture. The Classical world permeated almost every aspect of life, from political institutions and philosophical enquiry to scientific method and the basic forms of architecture.

This is the lasting viral component of Spoken Word and one of the most popular forms of poetry in the 21st century. It is a new oral poetry originating in the s in Austin, Texas, using the speaking voice and other theatrical elements. Practitioners write for the speaking voice instead of writing poetry for the silent printed page.   Acquisto argues that memory plays an under acknowledged yet vital role in these poets' rewriting of symbolist poetics. His reading of their interactions, and his focus on both major and neglected poets, exposes the myth of a small handful of 'great authors' shaping symbolism while a host of disciples propagated the tradition.

Paul A. Mankin recites the most famous French poetry from the 19th Century. Gérard de Nerval, Victor Hugo and Alphonse de Lamartine, the main poets from the romantic period are represented, as well as precursors of Symbolism, Paul Verlaine and Stéphane Mallarmé. In addition, the album includes poems. Romanticism holds that pure logic is insufficient to answer all questions. Despite a founding French influence, Romanticism was most widespread in Germany and England, largely as a reaction to the French Enlightenment. It also was a response to French cultural domination, particularly during the Napoleonic Wars.

Symbolism originated in the revolt of certain French poets against the rigid conventions governing both technique and theme in traditional French poetry, as evidenced in the precise description of Parnassian poetry.

The Symbolists wished to liberate poetry from its expository functions and its formalized oratory in order to describe instead the fleeting, immediate sensations of man’s inner. The angel of Death, pristine snow, and the dramatic poses of the characters all express symbolist longings for transfiguration "anywhere, out of the world".

Symbolism was a late nineteenth-century art movement of French, Russian and Belgian origin in poetry and other arts. French Romantic poetry marked a dramatic break with a national tradition of verse which had been inherited almost unaltered from the seventeenth century.

During the eighteenth century, the neo-classical conception of poetry as a rule-governed and highly stylized art had continued to prevail; verse was characterized by a solemn tone and narrow lexis, and there was a rigid distinction between.

Many ways of thinking and feeling—whether based on reason, sentiment, or an exacerbated sensibility—and most literary forms persisted with little change from to In common with Hugo and many other Romantic poets, however, he proposed the poet as prophet and seer. For Vigny the poet is essentially a dignified, moralizing philosopher, using the symbol less as a vehicle for emotion than as an intense expression of his thought.

The classic text of apocalyptic violence is the Book of Revelation. The formative age of Romantic poetry was clearly one of apocalyptic expectations, or at least apocalyptic imaginings, which endowed the promise of France with the form and impetus of one of the deepest rooted and most compelling myths in the culture of Christian Europe.

French literature - French literature - The Symbolists: The distinction between Decadence and Symbolism is slight and, in poetry at least, is frequently as much one of allegiances to different networks as one of differences of thematic content or formal practices.

At its simplest and most reductive, the opposition is between the Decadents’ perception that the material world, and the galling. Other Concepts: Emotion, Lyric Poetry, and the Self Other aspects of Romanticism were intertwined with the above three concepts.

Emphasis on the activity of the imagination was accompanied by greater emphasis on the importance of intuition, instincts, and feelings, and Romantics generally called for greater attention to the emotions as a necessary supplement to purely logical reason.

Victor Hugo’s Tomorrow, at dawn and Lamartine’s The Lake are prime examples of French Romantic poetry. Romanticism was followed by Symbolism and French poets like Charles Baudelaire and Arthur Rimbaud played a key role in the movement.

Symbolism emphasised the primary importance of suggestion and evocation in the expression of a private mood or reverie, as employed by Romantic poets like Shelley and Blake in England and Novalis and Friedrich Hölderlin in Germany.

The symbol was held to evoke subtle relations and affinities, especially between sound, sense and colour, and between the material and the spiritual.

Symbolist Movement A group of late 19th-century French writers, including Arthur Rimbaud and Stéphane Mallarmé, who favored dreams, visions, and the associative powers of the imagination in their poetry.

They rejected their predecessors’ tendency toward naturalism and realism, believing that the purpose of art was not to represent reality but to access greater truths by the “systematic. The upheavals of the French Revolution and the Napoleonic era were accompanied by new intellectual trends.

Romanticism, greatly influenced by the philosophy of Rousseau, was heralded in the writings of Germaine de Staël and François René, vicomte.
