Evolution of Mystery; Kingdom of Matter and The Past; Luck. Maeterlinck's writing is characterized by clear and simple expression with a subtle suggestion rather than a direct expression of ideas and emotions.

MAURICE MAETERLINCK (1862-1949) was born in Belgium, into a prosperous Catholic family. He was closely associated with the French literary movement of symbolism, which used symbols to represent ideas and emotions. The author of more than 60 books replete with suggestions of universal mystery and auras of impending doom, Maeterlinck's work as a whole can be read as a symbolist manifesto. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1911.
