Hugo's poem had the title "Autre guitare"; the poem was set by several other composers, including Saint-Saëns, Lalo, etc., sometimes as "Guitare" or with similar titles (as noted in the notes to the recordings of those other songs on Hyperion Records- where the Liszt connection is mentioned- and at Recmusic.org as above).
