Le Siècle et la poésie

vers/verse, pub:1827

Published in La Psyché.

From A Bibliography of Alexandre Dumas père by Frank Wild Reed:
     120 lines broken into irregular stanzas, rhymed in couplets.
     This piece was published complete in the "Mercure du XIXe. Siècle," 1827, Vol. XIX., pp. 385 and following.
     The final twenty-eight lines only were issued under the same title, but with the added word "Fragment," in "La Psyché," during 1827. M. Glinel, in his MS. collection of Dumas' poems, notes two variants, and there refers his readers also to "La Lyre Nationale" for 1830, but without saying in what connection.
     Apparently the final twenty-eight lines above referred to were all that were known to M. Glinel when he published his "Alexandre Dumas et Son Œuvre," in 1884. for he there publishes them without comment, on pp. 174 and 175. There, too, by a printer's error, no doubt, the twelfth line is wanting.
