Restraint, clinging to a secure global the place every thing is obvious and self-evident is what prevents a author from getting into that sector of the specific severe the place his paintings turns into timeless.

simply as impressionism reached its optimum element in Paul Varlaine’s Romances sans Paroles, so has during this novel voluptuousness reached elegant heights, brooding cynically over the tyranny of hope. lady, with all her past mutations, is right here no longer a capturable butterfly yet Psyche, all secret, as mysterious because the evening sky of far away stars, and all we examine of her is yet to deepen the secret. To the would-be captor she is destiny, an subconscious a part of what's everlasting in issues; she is a weaver of illusions, the wickeder the extra attractive, whose flesh is as addictive because it is risky, a lady who's all scorching and fierce, of the devilishly attention-grabbing ferocity of a tigress that invitations a caressing contact; she is to be reverenced as is Saint Theresa for the august warmth of her rapture, and he who loves her must never wish that she should still love in return.
there isn't a web page we flip with out the faintest thrill of interest, simply as there's hardly ever a sentence we will be able to learn with no excitement for its literary get pleasure from, its ironic splendor, livid sensuality or feverish devotion. just like the poet Milton sooner than him, Kafallo has in a rare measure the reward of assimilating all that he stumbled on, all that he borrowed, and provides it with the strength of a sledge hammer that moves an anvil and shoots forth sparks of savage fury. mind and emotion are the molders of his variety. within the phrases of Arthur Symons, the rhythm of poetry is musical, and the rhythm of prose physiological—Kafallo has ingeniously made use of either.
