The article profiles Belgian poet Marie Nizet. She was born in Brussels when Belgium was still a very young country. She was just eighteen when she published her first collection of poems, Moscou et Bucarest, in France. Le Capitaine Vampire, a novella with a Romanian setting that appeared in 1879 was Nizet's last published work. Her unrestrained frankness in the expression of sensual love is rare among nineteenth century women writers.
