“Un Coup de Dés” / “A throw of the dice” small group work

Spend some time looking through/reading “Un Coup de Dés” by Stephan Mallarmé.

Put yourselves in groups of three and discuss the following two questions:

  1. How and why does this text emphasize the materiality of the word?
  2. What difference does it make to the content or to the meaning of the poem when it is compressed and properly punctuated?
