Stéphane Mallarmé, I.-L. Sandomir, Alastair Brotchie & Dennis Duncan


One risks accusations of vulgarity by suggesting that this issue of the Journal demonstrates equivalence of scale: large and small, gigantic and minuscule. It consists of an intense exploration of a single small huge poem, Stéphane Mallarmé’s “Sonnet in x”, by Alastair Brotchie and Dennis Duncan, a translation of the poem by Stanley Chapman, extracts from Mallarmé’s letters on its composition and an essay on the semi-imaginary word “Ptyx” by Dr. Sandomir, the first Vice-Curator of the Collège de ’Pataphysique.
