The Symbolist Movement In Literature is a book written by Arthur Symons, first published in 1899. It is a comprehensive study of the Symbolist movement, a literary and artistic movement that emerged in late 19th century France and spread throughout Europe. The book explores the origins, development, and key figures of the movement, including Charles Baudelaire, St�����phane Mallarm�����, and Paul Verlaine. Symons examines the Symbolist aesthetic, which emphasized suggestion and evocation over direct representation, and the movement's rejection of naturalism and realism. He also explores the influence of Symbolism on other artistic movements, such as Art Nouveau and Surrealism. The book is considered a seminal work on Symbolism and has been widely influential in the study of modern literature and art.This Is A New Release Of The Original 1919 Edition.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
