In the later part of the 19th century, a wave of orientalism swept Europe and a wide section of French literature was heavily influenced by it. The master and founder of the Parnassian school of poetry, Charles Marie René Leconte de Lisle was born in La Reunion where he imbibed the strong Hindu cultural atmosphere which he later reflected in his enchanting; melodious; prosodically impeccable and philosophically rich Hindu poems which had a lasting impact on the French intellectual scene.

The lecture will present both the French originals and the English translations of some of Leconte de Lisle’s major poems; citing some of his sources and commenting on the effect they had on the evolution of literature and art in his day and in subsequent periods
