Theophile Gautier : Emaux et Camees

'Now he discovered "one of Swinburne's models" - Gautier: "I have just bought is "Emaux et Camees", he told Osborne, "translated several of them, and read a good many. Scarcely since I first came across Rossetti have I received so new, so fresh, so powerful an impression from any work or style of verse. I have added a new string to my bow".'

Théophile Gautier : Emaux et Camées

'I am sending you with my love a pretty edition of "Emaux et Camées" [of Théophile Gautier]. I don't think you have anything on your shelves of the bon poète. I haven't seen these poems since, since the days before the Deluge. How simple they were those great romantics!'
