Example text

In his essays Maeterlinck takes no account of such external impersonations and personifications, but speaks as a disembodied spirit. His grand concepts are designed to uplift and reassure; hyperbole and superlative lay claim to significance; but where, we may ask, is the hard evidence? His style loses its edge and becomes facile and redundant. Devoid of any personal revelations or invented anecdotes, Maeterlinck’s essays on the lofty themes of human destiny seem unspecified, vague, and colorless, especially in English translation where the absence of concrete detail results in a lulling monotony.

While adding his name to the list didn’t exactly show him to be a movement leader, as the Dreyfus Affair was then dragging on into its fourth year, still it indicated that he would not stay eternally on the sidelines concerning one of the burning issues of his day, particularly if it was one to which a large body of fellowartists were willing to commit themselves. Then in 1902, he was prominent among the celebrities who signed another petition in support of the general strike that brought the nation to a standstill.

He steeped himself in the writings of the medieval Flemish mystic, Ruysbroeck, translating this arcana into French; he associated himself with the Symbolist movement that had deep roots in the Rosicrucianism of Sâr Joseph Péladan (who toured Belgium in the 1880s and whose lectures Maeterlinck may very well have attended), with kinship to the Theosophy of Madame Blavatsky, the writings of Novalis, Jacob Boehme, and other links in the spiritualist network that crisscrossed Europe at the time. The prominent theosophist Rudolph Steiner was certainly interested in him and produced The Intruder in Berlin in 1890.
