More information

Saint-Pol-Roux was born to a middle class family in Marseille where his father was an industrialist. He studied in a lycée in Lyon, but mysteriously ended his studies there. He then wrote some plays under his own name.

He left the south of France to instal himself in Paris. He particularly frequented the salon of Stéphane Mallarmé, for whom he had the greatest admiration. He won a certain notoriety, trying out several pseudonyms before finally becoming "Saint-Pol-Roux le magnifique". He even got one of his plays, la Dame à la faux, put on by Sarah Bernhardt, and was interviewed by Jules Huret as a member of the Symbolist movement. He perhaps participated in the Rosicrucian aesthetic of Péladan. Nevertheless, he wrote nothing on the movement or on its founder. Saint-Pol-Roux was doubtless interested in this audacious literary attempt, and had to leave it quickly.
