Parnassian poets

I wish reading up on the music styles of Gabriel Faure, and I read from The New Grove II that his second period was that of the Parnassian poets. I am not a keen student of literature and I beg your pardon that I've no idea who the Parnassian poets were.

As such, I went to surf the internet to find out more.
Here are some sources:

As the sources above suggest, the poets of the Parnassian movement shared an artistic attitude "that rejected the emphasis on subjective expression and unrestrained imagination which characterized the Romantic period." (view source)

More learning to be done.
