Adolphe Retté (1863-1930) was on the editorial staff of La Vogue, and published his first collection of poems, Cloches en la nuit, in 1889. That was followed by the remarkable Thulé des Brumes (Bibliothèque Artistique et Littéraire, 1891), a portmanteau of dream-like prose poems. He experienced something of an ideological conversion in 1893 when he became a committed anarchist and gave his allegiance to an esthetic theory that preached the necessity of a return to nature and a celebration of everyday life. In 1906 he underwent another conversion, this time to Catholicism, and his subsequent literary work was doctrinaire.
