    Here's a recent essay on Baudelaire from the trusty, always-interesting online mag The Millions: http://www.themillions.com/2013/04/th... So as to try to follow that, I've got to disclose a bit of an embarrassment. Baudelaire was, for me, the kind of poet only certain kinds of ...

    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...

    After reading Baudelaire, I suddenly find myself wanting to smoke cigarettes and say very cynical things while donning a trendy haircut. Plus, if I didn't read Baudelaire, how could I possibly carry on conversations with pretentious art students? In all seriousness, though, I wish ...

    Flowers of Evil was an entirely serendipitous impulse check-out from my local library. I can only imagine that what caught my eye was the title - Flowers of Evil - who could resist? So I pulled it from the shelf, opened it up at random, read a few verses, and said to myself "This isn't...

    When my eyes, to this cat I love Drawn as by a magnet's force, Turn tamely back upon that appeal, And when I look within myself, I notice with astonishment The fire of his opal eyes, Clear beacons glowing, living jewels, Taking my measure, steadily. My (initial) amat...

    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?...

    This is a step towards possession. Certainly the possession does not last the entire way through, but even in the less interesting or repetitive poems there are some jarring lines, amplified by a soul in Heat. Like any elevated piece of literature, Flowers of Evil consumed me to...

    'Epigrafe per un libro condannato' Non scrissi, o lettore innocente, pacifico e buon cittadino, per te questo mio saturnino volume, carnale e dolente. Se ancora non hai del sapiente Don Satana appreso il latino, non farti del mio sibillino delirio turbare la mente! Ma legg...

    I read a majority of the poems in French, which made the experience more beautiful. Each word is like a unique brushstroke of color on a grand canvas, applied with varying degrees of pressure, and each deeply and sensually hued. Baudelaire?s poetry paints gorgeous images of emotion, ...

    My darling was naked, or nearly, for knowing my heart she had left on her jewels, the bangles and chains whose jingling music gave her the conquering air of a Moorish slave on days her master is pleased Whenever I hear such insolent harmonies, that scintillating world of metal a...

    translated by Edna St. Vincent Millay & George Dillon It's outrageous that this wonderful translation is out of print. After looking at many versions (including Richard Howard, James McGowan, and Cyril Scott who was my second favourite) this was the only one with truly good po...

    "As Flores do Mal no contm poemas histricos nem lendas; nada que repouse sobre uma narrativa. No vemos nelas tiradas filosficas. A poltica no aparece, as descries so raras e sempre significativas. Mas tudo nelas encanto, msica, sensualidade poderosa e abstrata....

    Luego de leer ?Las Flores del Mal?, debo admitir que me cuesta mucho ejercer una crtica (la palabra me demasiado suena fuerte) o una resea sobre este libro mtico, debido a mis pobres conocimientos sobre poesa. Es ms, recuerdo que cuando tuve que analizar poesa durante m...

    When it comes to the most beautiful literature in the world, I radically believe in the imperial prominence of Nineteenth century French literature. Charles Baudelaire is one of the poets that tremendously alimented this conviction. Originally entitled "Les Lesbiennes" and brazen...

    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 ...

    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...
