From Paul Valéry to Julia Kristeva, the work of Stéphane Mallarmé has had a lasting impact on twentieth-century French culture. His texts have served as emblem and inspiration for successive generations of cultural theorists and practitioners.

In Meetings with Mallarmé, top scholars from the UK and USA have been specially commissioned to explore the significance of Mallarmé's influence on some of the major players in French psychoanalysis, music, poetry, philosophy and literary theory. By re-staging these textual encounters, the book demonstrates how the ghostly presence of Stéphane Mallarmé profoundly informed the projects of such key figures as Valéry, Lacan, Sartre, Derrida, Boulez, de Man, Bonnefoy, Kristeva, Blanchot and the Oulipo group. All quotations are translated.

"Published during the centenary year of Mallarmé's death, this collection of carefully thought-out literary and philosophical encounters brings together 10 innovative analyses. It is the process of cultural influence, quite as much as Mallarmé's gloriously present oeuvre and persona that informs the incisive and fascinating contributions." (Modern and Contemporary France, Vol. 7, No. 3, 1999) "Michael Temple is to be congratulated on an interesting project." (Journal of European Studies, March 1999)

Michael Temple is a lecturer in French at Birkbeck College, London.
