Biography: 

Victor Hugo (1802-1885) in his writing reflects many of the literary tendencies of the century which his life almost spanned.

Biography: 

Paul Valéry (1871-1945) published some early poetry before 1900 but then disappeared completely from the literary scene until 1917 when La jeune Parque came out in print. Like Mallarmé, Valéry is an implacable perfectionist, and he demands of form what the older poet sought in harmonic effects.
