Maurice Maeterlinck

Maurice Polydore Marie Bernard Maeterlinck known as Count Maeterlinck from 1932, was a Belgian playwright and essayist, Flemish but wrote in French. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1911 "in appreciation of his many-sided literary activities, of his dramatic works, which are distinguished by a wealth of imagination and by a poetic fancy, which reveals, sometimes in the guise of a fairy tale, a deep inspiration, while in a mysterious way they appeal to the readers' own feelings and stimulate their imaginations"; the main themes in his work are the meaning of life. He was a leading member of La Jeune Belgique group and his plays form an important part of the Symbolist movement. Maeterlinck was born in Belgium, to a wealthy, French-speaking family, his mother, Mathilde Colette Françoise, came from a wealthy family. His father, was a notary who enjoyed tending the greenhouses on their property. In September 1874 he was sent to the Jesuit College of Sainte-Barbe, where works of the French Romantics were scorned and only plays on religious subjects were permitted.

His experiences at this school influenced his distaste for the Catholic Church and organized religion. He had written poems and short novels during his studies. After finishing his law studies at the University of Ghent in 1885, he spent a few months in Paris, France, he met some members of the new Symbolism movement, Villiers de l'Isle Adam in particular, who would have a great influence on Maeterlinck's subsequent work. Maeterlinck became a public figure when his first play, Princess Maleine, received enthusiastic praise from Octave Mirbeau, the literary critic of Le Figaro in August 1890. In the following years, he wrote a series of symbolist plays characterized by fatalism and mysticism, most Intruder, The Blind and Pelléas and Mélisande, he had a relationship with the singer and actress Georgette Leblanc from 1895 until 1918. Leblanc influenced his work for the following two decades. With the play Aglavaine and Sélysette Maeterlinck began to create characters female characters, more in control of their destinies.

Leblanc performed these female characters on stage. Though mysticism and metaphysics influenced his work throughout his career, he replaced his Symbolism with a more existential style. In 1895, with his parents frowning upon his open relationship with an actress and Leblanc moved to the district of Passy in Paris; the Catholic Church was unwilling to grant her a divorce from her Spanish husband. They entertained guests, including Mirbeau, Jean Lorrain, Paul Fort, they spent their summers in Normandy. During this period, Maeterlinck published his Twelve Songs, The Treasure of the Humble, The Life of the Bee, Ariadne and Bluebeard. In 1903, Maeterlinck received the Triennial Prize for Dramatic Literature from the Belgian government. During this period, down to the Great War, he was looked up to, throughout Europe, as a great sage, the embodiment of the higher thought of the time. In 1906, Maeterlinck and Leblanc moved to a villa in Grasse, he spent his hours walking. As he pulled away from Leblanc, he entered a state of depression.

Diagnosed with neurasthenia, he rented the Benedictine Abbey of St. Wandrille in Normandy to help him relax. By renting the abbey he rescued it from the desecration of being sold and used as a chemical factory and thus he received a blessing from the Pope. Leblanc would walk around in the garb of an abbess. During this time, he wrote his essay "The Intelligence of Flowers", in which he expressed sympathy with socialist ideas, he donated money to many workers' unions and socialist groups. At this time he conceived his greatest contemporary success: the fairy play The Blue Bird. After the writing "The Intelligence of Flowers", he suffered from a period of depression and writer's block. Although he recovered from this after a year or two, he was never so inventive as a writer again, his plays, such as Marie-Victoire and Mary Magdalene, provided with lead roles for Leblanc, were notably inferior to their predecessors, sometimes repeat an earlier formula. Though alfresco performances of some of his plays at St. Wandrille had been successful, Maeterlinck felt that he was losing his privacy.

The death of his mother on 11 June 1910 added to his depression. In 1910 he met the 18-year-old actress Renée Dahon during a rehearsal of The Blue Bird, she became his lighthearted companion. After having been nominated by Carl Bildt, member of the Swedish Academy, he won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1911, which served to lighten his spirits. By 1913, he was more socialist and sided with the Belgian trade unions against the Catholic party during a strike, he began to study mysticism and lambasted the Catholic Church in his essays for misconstruing the history of the universe. By a decree of 26 January 1914, his opera omnia were placed on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum by the Roman Catholic Church; when Germany invaded Belgium in 1914, Maeterlink wished to join the French Foreign Legion, but his application was denied due to his age. He and Leblanc decided to leave Grasse for a villa near Nice, where he spent the next decade of his life, he placed guilt upon all Germans for the war. Although his patriotism, his indifference to the harm he was doing to his standing in Germany, do him credit, it damaged his reputation as a great sage who stood above cur
