Lucien Durosoir was an assiduous reader of poetry; and he preferred the Parnassiens to the Romantics. He also read and re-read his favourite poets, Baudelaire, Verlaine and Rimbaud, of which he owned several first editions. During the months spent in the muddy trenches of WWI, he often sought consolation from their works that had been sent by his mother to the battlefront. In this way, he was able to while away the long hours of waiting, moral loneliness and physical suffering. This third volume opens the doors to a more poetic Lucien Durosoir, in a language that engenders a sweet and romantic daydream, as a contrast to the trauma at beginning of the 20th century.

“There is a Romantic impulse, vaguely Brahmsian in parts of Jouvence...The ferocity of the Piano Quintet makes its point.”
