¶ Nouvelle poétique by Gérard de Nerval (1808-1855), a short story that he considered as his best one. “Si un écrivain aux antipodes des claires et faciles aquarelles a cherché à se définir laborieusement à lui-même, à éclairer des nuances troubles, des lois profondes, des impressions presqu'insaisissables de l'âme humaine, c'est Gérard de Nerval dans Sylvie”, Marcel Proust wrote. “Je ne connais aucun récit plus enchanté dans notre langue”, Julien Gracq says.
