Reid, Helen Margaret
Segalen is associated with Mallarme in a desire to renew appreciation of the primitive force of language, and to break away from literary stereotypes. However he embarked upon a different course, seeking rapport between the world of physical sensation and the world of literature. he found this rapport in the "exotic". This study follows the development of his theory of exoticism from his departure in 1902 for Tahiti to his mature work in China.
