    I read Les Fleurs du Mal many years back, but it is still within me. Just a few words about this beautiful, sometimes nightmarish, masterpiece. What do you expect to feel when reading Charles Baudelaire? Nothing, I expect, falsely innocent, but superior free-flowing dream sequences of ...

    Superlative. Thrilling. Sensual. Naughty. Macabre. Joyous. Liberating. Essential. Poetry for the reluctant poetry reader, i.e. me. (A little distracted here listening to Belle & Sebastian?s Write About Love which I finally acquired. Hence the choppiness). Great translation. Don?...

    Les Fleurs du Mal or The Flowers of Evil or, let?s extrapolate here, The Beauty of Evil is a masterpiece of French literature which should have pride of place in any bookcase worth its name, right between Milton?s Paradise Lost and Dante?s Divine Comedy. For indeed the beauty of ...

    The Poet is an exile on earth. The only ones to let him wrap around and be a giant. The work of Charles Baudelaire represents the end of one epoch and the beginning of another that lasts even today: the Decadentism. Baudelaire's poems are a journey through inwardness and a call to a sp...

    Truly a unique an haunting voice - a visionary poet who forces you to question all that you find comforting - immersion of the self into the torrent of humanity. ...

    One of my favorite poets of all time. Baudelaire emphasized above all the disassociated character of modern experience: the sense that alienation is an inevitable part of our modern world. In his prose, this complexity is expressed via harshness and shifts of mood. The constant e...

    How to describe this volume of poetry? Avant-garde, modernistic, innovative, original? Yes, all of those, and to use a modern slang word, edgy. So edgy in fact, for mid 19th century France, that Napoleon III's government prosecuted him for "an insult to public decency". Six of the poem...
