AUTHOR

Nerval, Gérard de, Wagner, Geoffrey

SUMMARY

Aureliais a document of dreams, obsession and insanity. An account of Nerval's unrequited passion for an actress and subsequent descent into madness, this book was a favorite of artist Joseph Cornell's, and its author was championed by both Marcel Proust and Andr Breton. One of the original self-styled "bohemians," Nerval was best known in his own day for parading a lobster on a pale blue ribbon through the gardens of the Palais-Royal, and for his suicide in 1855, hanging from an apron string he called the garter of the Queen of Sheba. Geoffrey Wagner's translation of Aureliawas first published by Grove Press in 1959, but has remained out of print for nearly 20 years. Included are previously untranslated stories, and poet Robert Duncan's version of the sonnet cycle "Chimeras"--making this the most complete collection of Nerval ever published in English.Nerval, Gérard de is the author of 'Aurelia and Other Writings', published 2004 under ISBN 9781878972095 and ISBN 187897209X.
