2003 was an exceptional year in the world of Mallarmé studies. It saw the publication of the much-awaited second (and final) volume of Bertrand Marchal's new Pléiade edition of the poet's complete works, containing his prose compositions. It also saw the appearance of the third volume in Gordon Millan's new series of Documents, containing what he terms Mallarmé's 'Proses expérimentales,' namely the Préface à Vathek, the prose poems, and Variations sur un sujet. In the five years between the publication of Marchal's two volumes, Millan's editorial work on Mallarmé's prose had more than filled the gap, and his series established itself as a reliable source of up-to-date and extremely detailed information.
