The preface to Maxime du Camp’s 1855 Les Chants modernes demanded a new status for poetry and the arts, in collaboration with the modern themes of science and industry. The success of Paris’ 1855 Exposition Universelle, and especially the public’s infatuation for the exhibited machines and industrial works, led some artists associated with Du Camp and his Revue de Paris to see an opportunity for renewal. Others, such as Baudelaire, Ernest Renan, and Leconte de Lisle, reacted against this intrusion of the material world, and against applying the idea of progress to the arts. Marta Caraion reconstructs the debate on the relationship between the arts and science and industry in the middle of the nineteenth century. The core of the controversy, the preface to Chants modernes, is presented in full, as well as other texts by Maxime du Camps and the Revue de Paris, followed by critiques and reactions against his book by authors such as Baudelaire and Louis Ménard.
