Capital to understanding Nerval's intent in Les Petits chateaux de Boheme is Brix's distinction between Boheme with circumflex accent
, corresponding to the period of youth that preceded Nerval's serious entrance into the professional world, and Boheme in the traditional sense with grave accent, to which it was changed by many editors, belying Nerval's lifelong struggle to win recognition for his literary talents.
EDITOR'S NOTE: In the text above, the word "SMARTpeno" should have a circumflex accent
symbol above the letter "o".
In 1887, Peter Bohn associated the acute, grave, and circumflex accents
with the virga, punctum, alla clivis; whereas Atkinson's examination of chants notated in Paleofrankish script shows that the "correct" correspondence should be with the pes, clivis, and torculus.
