Known principally for Bruges-la-Morte, a key work of Belgian Symbolism, Georges Rodenbach (1855-1898) is also the author of other works worthy of present-day study. His collections of poetry, his plays, and his other novels subtly rework themes which evoke his native Flanders.  This volume contains the texts of two of his plays: Le Voile enacts a whole network of themes with a connection to Bruges – a veritable summary of the “intimism” which was the glory of literary and artistic Belgium in the 1890s – whie Le Mirage adapts Bruges-la-Morte for the stage, in an attempt to exteriorise thoughts which in the novel were essentially self-enclosed.
 
This is a volume in the series Textes littéraires/Exeter French Texts.  The text, introduction and essential notes are all in French.
