Nerval is one of the most important writers of the French Romantic movement. His great sonnet cycle, Les Chimères, in its marvellous combination of spell, quest and dream, continues to fascinate writers, readers, and trans-lators. Will Stone’s spirited English versions are accompanied by an essay, as well as by an introduction – written in 1949 – by the late Michael Hamburger, as well as commentary by Norma Rinsler, the doyenne of English Nervaliens.
