Sur la Loire

vers/verse, pub:1829

From A Bibliography of Alexandre Dumas père by Frank Wild Reed:
     This piece consists of two sections, each comprising six regular six-line stanzas, rhyming a, a, b, c, c, b.
     M. Glinel owned a manuscript book in which Dumas flung, in pencil, a first attempt at this poem, later transcribing it in ink upon two and a half pages, adding some corrections in pencil, which would now be difficult to read if one could not approach it with the printed text at hand. Elsewhere, in his MS. collection of Dumas' poems, M. Glinel lists fifteen variants between the MS. and the printed copies.
     On the disposal of M. Glinel's library, this manuscript book was one of the items secured for the Reed Dumas Collection.
     The poem was first printed in "La Psyché," in the number for June, 1829.
     Later M. Ch. Glinel included it in his "Alexandre Dumas et Son Œuvre," pp. 244 to 246.
