    Even if I could read it I certainly could not afford it. Crazy!!

    I've never heard of this person. I'd be glad if my writing would sell for that price and then some.

    Usually if you go to a list of poems or most things in another language you can click on translate this page and it will. I did on one of his poems LOL and it proves why some things do not translate well literally. For instance his poem was a love poem in within 3 lines the word fart popped up (no pun) but perhaps that's why he's worth so much.!!

    P.S. -- I hope people don't take that seriously. You never know though. On ne peut pas gagner toutes les batailles.

    The translator might have translated that word properly :P -- Charles' precise and grammatically stylized French most likely doesn't translate well using one of those online wotchamacallitthingymafeckerupperupapups. Besides, certain words would have to be changed if the rhymes were to stay intact within the English translation(i.e: terre becomes earth/soil, etc, and definitely doesn't rhyme with the preceeding rhymes). So maybe, just maybe, "fart" works, especially since it rhymes with: heart.

    LOL, that's why I did not opt to use an online translator. LOL fart! Ha! :)

    † Hi Catie, I Find As I Age That My Lack Thereof In Regards Unto Reading Books Has Been No Less A Blessing Within My Own Tiny Tot's Life ?

    Good for him. Yet this reinforces how poetry isn't about the money, especially when considering visual art. "Skrik"("The Scream" - fourth version, pastel - 1895)by Edvard Munch, sold for a whopping $119,922,600(120 million bucks!!!!)at Sotheby's Impressionist and Modern art auction on May 2nd, 2012, to financier Leon Black. Any one of Van Gogh's more damaged pieces can sell for $60,000,000. So really, $9,756 can be looked upon as a sarcastic chuckle in the face of literature.

    Ok LOL now I get it... So very right! yep! :)

    Yet people will squabble over a used car that was driven by a not-so-great movie star, and dish-out $240,000K. Peace and Lucem Ferre.

    Yes, that's why I typed: "visual art". That was part of my point. Ok, disregard the art analogy. Some people will spend $30,000 on a diamond necklace -- here is Charles Marie Rene Leconte de Lisle, an innovator and leader of the group of poets called the Parnassians, and he was the successor of the great Victor Hugo in the French Academy....yet his work is only worth the pittance of $9,756.
    Lindsey Avatar Catie Lindsey Date: 8/3/2013 2:57:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Wow! Yes, but that is visual art, not really literature.... in my opinion. :) love and hugs, catie :)
  1. Date: 8/3/2013 12:23:00 PM
    I did find a list of his poetry, but it is all written in french, so....I was not able to read it. LOL But isn't it inspiring that one day....maybe centuries after our own passing.... maybe our books will actually be worth some real value....monetary value.
