"With the volume Les Complaintes , from mid-November 1882 on, Laforgue finally gives up metaphysical concerns, mere useless cries of despair. His aesthetic approach is transformed when he reads Hartmann. From now on he will hide his despair behind the mask of a Pierrot vho laughs , like his brother Corbière, "because something is hurting"." --"Jules Laforgue: La Crise Metaphysique" by Gerard Guenette
