This collection of Stéphane Mallarmé's letters is an indispensable companion to the 'complete' correspondence published by Gallimard in eleven volumes (1959-85). The collection comprises 143 letters, dating from 1863 to 1898. Many are previously unpublished, others are published in their entirety for the first time. Not only is the life and work of the poet revealed through his letter writing, but Austin's editorial notes also include the replies of Mallarmé's editors and fellow writers. A vivid dialogue emerges between the poet and his contemporaries.

Lloyd James Austin (1915-1994) was co-editor with Henri Mondor of the Correspondance de Stéphane Mallarmé (1965-1985). His study L'Univers poétique de Baudelaire was published in 1956, and he was editor of French Studies for thirteen years. His work has received international recognition: Fellow of the British Academy, 1968; Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, 1972; Docteur honoris causa de l'Université de Paris-Sorbonne, 1973; Officier de l'Ordre national du Mérite, 1976; Membre de l'Académie Royale de Langue et de Littérature Française de Belgique, 1980; Prix Henri Mondor, 1981. Bertrand Marchal is now editor of Mallarmé's correspondence. He is the author of two studies of the poet, Lecture de Mallarmé (1985) and La religion de Mallarmé (1988). He has edited various collections of Mallarmé's letters and poetry, including Correspondance complète 1862-71, suivie de Lettres sur la poésie 1872-98 (1995), Lettres à Méry Laurent (1996) and Vers de circonstance (1996).

Nicola Luckhurst is currently Randal MacIver Research Fellow at Somerville College, Oxford. Her doctoral thesis 'Structure and Science in Proust's A la recherche du temps perdu' is shortly to appear with Oxford University Press. she also has an active research interest in the Bloomsbury group, and is to be the general editor of an essay collection on the reception history of Virginia Woolf's writings.
