Schwob, Marcel

Tagged: Author

(1867-1905) French author whose fantasies were influential on authors like Jorge Luis Borges; it is not known if Clark Ashton Smith read his work, though resemblances in tone and venue make this not unlikely. For his story "La Mort d'Odjigh" ["The Death of Odjigh"] (1892; trans by Iain White in The King in the Golden Mask, coll 1982), see Origin of Man. [JC]
