This study surveys the work of five 20th-century poets - Yeats, Valery, Rilke, Stevens and Guillen - to show how the linguistic richness of the symbolist tradition continued well into the modern period. These writers, all of whom learned the poetry of language from Mallarme, compensated for the disappearance of metaphysical inclinations in early 20th-century poetry by instituting a poetic fiction. The text finds the immersion of the "I" and its altered reflection to be a common feature of their poetry.
