BANVILLE Théodore de (1823-1891).
Autograph poem signed "Théodore de Banville", Petites odes. L'Immortelle, [1888]; 2 1/2 pages small in-4. Witty response to Daudet's novel, L'Immortel (1888), which violently attacked the Academy. This poem of 9 quatrains was collected in Sonnailles et clochettes (Charpentier, 1890). "Muse, Daudet is not right; His justice is only apparent, For your divine flowering Lives very well with the Forty. The Academy is a phoenix Laughing like Cypris in the island; And certainly it has Monsieur X, But it has Leconte de Lisle "
