  • Poems

    Translated by Bernard Miall ...
    "Poems" by Maurice Maeterlinck is a poetry collection that forms part of a movement long-defunct—the Belgian Symbolist movement, an offshoot of that Belgian renascence that produced so remarkable a body of great and noble poetry. Maurice Polydore Marie Bernard Maeterlinck (1862 – 1949), also known as Count (or Comte) Maeterlinck from 1932, was a Belgian playwright, poet, and essayist who was ... Read more

  • Mary Magdalene: A Play in Three Acts

    I have borrowed from Mr. Paul Heyse’s drama, Maria von Magdala, the idea of two situations in my play, namely, at the end of the first act, the intervention of Christ, who stops the crowd raging against Mary Magdalene with these words, spoken behind the scenes: “He that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone;” and, in the third, the dilemma in which the great sinner finds herself, ...

    That is where we stand. For us, death is the one event that counts in our life and in our universe. It is the point whereat all that escapes our vigilance unites and conspires against our happiness. The more our thoughts struggle to turn away from it, the closer do they press around it. The more we dread it, the more dreadful it becomes, for it but thrives upon our fears. He who seeks to forget it ... Read more

  • Mountain Paths

    IN that curious little masterpiece A Beleagured City, Mrs. Oliphant shows us the dead of a provincial town suddenly waxing indignant over the conduct and the morals of those inhabiting the town which they founded. They rise up in rebellion, invest the houses, the streets, the market-places and, by the pressure of their innumerable multitude, all-powerful though invisible, repulse the living, ... Read more

  • Ruysbroeck and the Mystics with Selections from Ruysbroeck

    Many works are more correctly beautiful than this book of Ruysbroeck L’Admirable. Many mystics—Swedenborg and Novalis among others—are more potent in their influence, and more timely. It is very probable that his writings may but rarely meet the needs of to-day. Looking at him from another point of view, I know few more clumsy authors. He wanders off now and then into strange puerilities, and the ... Read more

  • The Intelligence of the Flowers


    Translated by Teixeira de Mattos A. ...
    “This vegetable world, which to us appears so placid, so resigned, in which all seems acquiescence, silence, obedience, meditation, is, on the contrary, that in which the revolt against destiny is the most vehement and the most stubborn.”Far from being a botanical study, this magnificent poetic work puts the special nature of flowers. The Intelligence of the Flowers constitutes a real ... Read more
