Death comes to the mother, who welcomes him, but the daughter resists three times

Description

3-act play translated by William Sharp, with a note on the author by Sharp: Charles Van Lerberghe holds a peculiar place in the contemporary Belgian Renaissance. His actual literary achievement has, in bulk, been singularly meagre. A few poems, one or two compositions in prose: and here, for the present, the chronicle ends. On the other hand, there is probably no member of Young Belgium,' whether under the familiar flag of' La J eune Belgique,' or beneath that of the new protestant standard, Le Coq Rouge,' who would not at once name, or at least acknowledge, the author of ‘Les Flaireurs' as one of the two or three most distinctive leaders of the' movement.
