Before and After Mallarmé

Survivors' Press, Glasgow 2005. [Out of print].

From the back cover: "Never simply translations from Mallarmé's French, Manson's versions bring a hundred years of Mallarmé's influence on modern poetry to bear on the originals: now finding room inside Mallarmé's funeral poem for Théophile Gautier to mourn the great soundtext poet Bob Cobbing (1920-2002), now discovering a homage to the typography of Mallarmé's visual poem Un coup de dés jamais n'abolira le hasard in an original poem built on Mallarméan armature."
