A secret influence on generations of writers, from Guillaume Apollinaire and Jorge Luis Borges to Roberto BolaÃ±o, Marcel Schwob (1867â1905) was as versed in the street slang of medieval thieves as he was in the poetry of Walt Whitman (whom he translated into French). Paul ValÃ©ry and Alfred Jarry both dedicated their first books to him, and he was the uncle of Surrealist photographer Claude Cahun.
About: When Marcel Schwob published The Book of Monelle in French in 1894, it immediately became the unofficial bible of the French Symbolist movement, admired by such contemporaries as StÃ©phane MallarmÃ©, Alfred Jarry and AndrÃ© Gide.
