" Three "voices" give their title to the poetic collection of 1837, "Les Voix intérieures", and weave "the song that responds within us to the song we hear outside us": the voice of history, of the events that make or destroy it; that of nature, in which the writer senses obscure messages; and finally, that of man speaking to the "heart" of man, of the father or brother who has disappeared, of the wife and children who are so close and so far away at the same time.
