Durosoir: Jouvence & Autres Pièces De Musique De
Label: Alpha Productions
Lucien Durosoir was always an assiduous reader of poetry; and he preferred the Parnassiens to the Romantics. He also read and re-read his favourite poets, Baudelaire, Verlaine and Rimbaud, of which he owned several first editions. During the months spent in the muddy trenches of WWI, he often sought consolation from their works that had been sent by his mother to the battlefront. In this way, he was able to while away the long hours of waiting, moral loneliness and physical suffering.
