Les Vers menaçant d'Alcée

vers/verse, pub:1858

From A Bibliography of Alexandre Dumas père by Frank Wild Reed:
     Three regular four-line stanzas, rhyming a, b, a, b.
     First appeared in an article on "Sappho" in "Le Monte-Cristo," the number for January 7th, 1858.
     This article, and consequently the verses also, appeared in "Les Étoiles du Monde;" Paris, Garnier Frères, 1858, pp. 290-91.
     Dumas there says: "In his quality as poet, Alcaeus did not love sages and detested tyrants. He made some verses against Pittacus. Pittacus exiled him."
