"The history of literature is, of course, strewn with the neglected, the misunderstood, the forgotten, the never fully realized, and minor figures more influential than renowned. If one were to draw a Venn diagram comprised of each of these categories, Marcel Schwob, along with a handful of others, would be at the heart of their intersections. But how, one despairs, can a man praised so highly during his own life fall completely by the wayside posthumously, as if it was his vitality alone that kept him from obscurity?"

At 3:AM Magazine, Stephen writes about the rediscovery of Marcel Schwob and interviews translator Kit Schluter about Schwob’s haunting work, The Book of Monelle.

Herbert Pfostl at Blind Pony recently featured¬†Fleur Jaeggy’s beautiful essay on Marcel Schwob. (Previous post on Schwob.) Don’t miss it.

Wakefield Press is bringing out some Schwob, starting with The Book of Monelle, hallelujah.

Probably coming soon to Writers No One Reads: Fleur Jaeggy herself.

No one reads Marcel Schwob. (Three old posts on 50 Watts.)

Solar Books put out an edition of Imaginary Lives in 2009, though it seems to already be hard to find in the US.

The King in the Golden Mask is long out-of-print, as is The Book of Monelle, last printed in 1929.
