Examples from the Web for laforgue
Laforgue is an angel with whom our modern poetic Jacob must struggle.
Laforgue was a better artist than any of these men save Corbire.
Laforgue can never become a popular cult because tyros can not imitate him.
But there is good verbalism, distinct from lyricism or imagism, and in this Laforgue is a master.
He was born six years before Laforgue and in the same year as Rimbaud.
