As part of the educational series Lettres on literature, Rohmer evoked the atmosphere of the late 19th century and simulated an extensive interview with Stéphane Mallarmé. Although the questions are more or less made up, the answers come from period materials. The film is typically Rohmer in its emphasis on the word and its visual representation.

“Mallarmé’s poetry is very complicated, virtually incomprehensible during his time. I think television helps us to better understand it - on television, written text helps us to comprehend the content, which is why some poems are written out and shown. Images, therefore, speak.” Éric Rohmer
