Initially released in 1992, this bilingual anthology represents the power, range, and originality with which the Symbolist flow used to be grafted in Belgium. Cultivating an aesthetics of hallucination and spatial paradigms of the internal international, the fin de siècle Belgian poets remodeled the canal towns and landscapes in their native land into lasting magnets of the mind's eye. The Belgian Symbolist poems are vessels of passage to visionary nation-states, demonstrating the permeability of internal and outer truth

Page 20 Donald Flanell Friedman: Belgian Symbolism, an Anthology page 21 Georges Rodenbach Sans doute que la Ville empire Ce soir? Les veilleuses des réverbères A peine encore un peu espèrent; Elles sont comme des yeux; Comme des feux dévotieux, Yeux et feux illusoires. O réverbères! Ils s’alarment Et sentent la mort en chemin; Ils ont quelque chose d’humain, Ils tremblent et semblent pâlir Comme si dans leur flamme il y avait des larmes! Qu’est-ce qui va mourir? Un cygne averti chante sur l’eau noire .

Tu t’en iras à part et seul—et les naguères De jeunesse seront un inutile aimant Pour tes grands yeux lointains—et les joyeux tonnerres Chargeront loin de toi, victorieusement! Les Malades Blafards et seuls, ils sont, les sceptiques malades, Aigus de tous leurs maux. Ils regardent le soir Se faire dans leur chambre et grandir les facades. Une église près d’eux lève son clocher noir. Heure morte, là-bas, quelque part, en province, En une ville éteinte, au fond d’un coin désert, Où s’endeuillent des murs et des porches, dont grince Le gond monumental, ainsi qu’un poing de fer.
