Here available in English for the first time, in a splendid translation
by Brian Stableford, The Mirror of Legends, one of the important
collections of French Symbolist Bernard Lazare (18651903), offers
a melange of stories based on Greek, mythological and Biblical sources.
In prose coiling as effusively as the smoke from a swinging censer, the
esoteric lore of centuries is paraded before the reader in this series
of incantatory poem-like tales that form an eclectic myth-cycle of their
own. A mixture of erudition, heretical speculation and heightened lyricism,
The Mirror of Legends presents a unique artistic statement of metaphysics,
aesthetics and ethics.
