Les Chants de Maldoror – Wikipedia
Biography and memoirsBiographyLiterature and literary criticismEuropeWestern EuropeFrance, The literary career of Isidore Ducasse, successor to Lautreamotn, Byron and Baudelaire and a model for Rimbaud, Jarry and the Surrealists, has been virtually a posthumous one. Ducasse was born on 4 Aprilin Montevideo.
His father was well-to-do, a secretary and later chancellor at the French Consulate in Montevideo. Inhe returned briefly to Montevideo, then settled in Paris for his few remaining years.
Supported by remittances from his father, he lived in furnished flats, changing his address frequently but never leaving the neighbourhood of the Grands Boulevards and the Bourse. Isidore Ducasse died during the siege of Paris on 24 November of the same year. There is no point, moreover, where the facts are beyond dispute, in trying to exclude his life from a consideration of his maldoeor.
But the lure that has sidetracked so many critics arises from underdocumented events in his life. The problem, as Caradec points out, is not that we know so little about him but that we know too much; and lautremont personal tone of his writing prompts us to eke out deductions from it in order to fill in the tantalising gaps.

Might this indicate that Poe was as great an influence on him as Sue? These are not facts: Did Ducasse choose the pseudonym? Lykiard, lautreamobt reviews the matter perceptively and succinctly, raises an intriguing point when he asks: If I find the question irritating, it is because Ducasse has come to be lautreamony referred to by a name that appears only once in his work, that he never refers to in his letters, and that may have been no more than a temporary legal expedient.
Other characters appear, but all, including God, are subordinate to him. The full text of this book review is only available to subscribers of the London Review of Books.
