Below, and unrelated to the above, (depending on how you think, and to think these unrelated would in my view perhaps signal a failure of imagination, and a pity, and do with that view that what you will) two translations of the opening of a four part series of elegiac fragments by Mallarme, written in the later 1800’s after the death of his second child. The first is by Paul Auster, title translated as “Tomb for Anatole,” the second by Thomas Hummel, title translated as “A Tomb.
