The three octosyllabic sonnets which have come to be known as the ‘Triptyque’ first appeared in the Revue indépendant in January 1887 before being included in the Poésies published later that year. On these and all subsequent occasions Mallarmé grouped the poems in the same order and numbered them, which suggests that while each may be read as a discrete work, nevertheless together they form a composite whole, a trio to place beside the quartet of ‘Plusieurs Sonnets’. Like the four sonnets in alexandrines which make up this quartet, the ‘Triptyque’ may also date back to the mid-1860s.
