Charles Baudelaire, 1821 - 1867 Charles Baudelaire had perhaps had an immeasurable impact on modern poetry. He was born on April 9, 1821, to Joseph-Francois Baudelaire and Caroline Archimbaut Dufays in Paris. He was educated first at a military boarding school and then the College Louis-le-Grand, where he was later expelled in 1839. This reputation enabled Baudelaire to publish his most famous collection of poetry, "Les Fleurs du Mal" (The Flowers of Evil) in 1857. Though he continued to write journalism with some success, he became increasingly depressed and pessimistic.

Fleurs du mal, Flowers of Evil. After the death of Baudelaire on August 31, 1867, the rights to the poet's work reverted - ironically enough, given his relationship with her - to his aging mother. The complete works were to include Les Fleurs du mal, Les Paradis artificiels, Baudelaire's translations of Edgar Allan Poe, as well as prose poems, art criticism, and miscellaneous writings.

I am currently reading another book by Sylvain Tesson, and in the introduction to Geographie De L'Instant (French Edition) he referenced Baudelaire’s classic work, which reminded me that I had still not read it, even though I had purchased this edition eight months ago. I found this edition unworkable for my needs.

Before explaining why, I realize that it is difficult to ensure that reviews are always associated with the right edition. Mine is the Edition Alliage, with illustrations by Auguste Rodin and Gustave Delecroix, with two female lovers intertwined on the cover. The edition is French ONLY, so the reviews that address the translation, and compare the merits of one translator to another, are obviously of a different edition. And the French ONLY Alliage edition was apparently re-issued by Createspace.

The essential problem is that in the Kindle version, which I purchased, all the text is in the picture format. Thus, the many beautiful pleasures, and strengths of reading on the Kindle are obviated. The reader cannot even highlight a particular passage. In addition, the reader cannot quickly highlight a word in French, and check the various meanings in English, which is now possible with all other books. And the print is too small for normally reading, and page-turning, which means one has to enlarge the picture, then read it, then click out of it, to move on to the next page. Ugh, and Ugh again. The only interactive Kindle feature that has been preserved, and it is a modest one: there is a Table of Contents, listing the 151 poems, and it is hyperlinked to the particular page where it appears.

It IS possible to read it in this edition, and because it is Baudelaire, and if you were on that proverbial desert island, with no other choices, I would, and thus I’ll give it an extra star: 2-stars. But now, not on that island, I will carefully evaluate the other French only versions, and buy a proper one, even though it may not be Kindle.

Firstly, I love Les Fleur du Mal and Charles Baudelaire is quickly becoming my favorite writer. I only gave this version four stars because I did not like this translation. I found it to be too literal which slightly detracted from the writing. Personally, my favorite translation is by Norman Shapiro. While Shapiro's version is not as literal a translation as this one, I feel he does a better job of retaining the rhythm and essence of Baudelaire's writings. Again, that is just my personal preference but I would suggest trying to find Baudelaire's writings at a local bookstore or library first so you can compare different translations and see which one you like best before purchasing.

I suppose I'm predisposed to love this work (and love it I did!) because of my love of French literature in general and 19th century French poetry in particular. That being admitted, I still believe this to be one of the finest volumes of poetry ever written. The flow of the language is beautiful (try reading out loud or listening to a recording on YouTube) and the juxtaposition of beauty and sordidness powerful.

If you love poetry, 19th century urban romanticism, or the power and imagery of the French language, read this volume. Baudelaire is one of the greatest of poets of all time.

Weird! I love that the translating poets went for it in terms of meter and rhyme -- very cool. However, the results are not as faithful as the concept. Still, inspiring -- and Millay's intro is a great read.

I had gotten this for my boyfriend several years ago and last year, at this time he passed away from pneumonia. His family got rid of all his books, so I bought this for myself because he liked it so much.

Compared with The Flowers of Evil (Oxford World's Classics), which is both in French AND English, this edition is terrible. Terrible Typography, terrible printing. The content of the book is good though.

I am not a fan of Poetry, but this guy had some great concepts in his poetry. Having the French with English translation on the next page really helped me as a native English speaker to get the flow of the poetry and pick up (or disagree with the translator) on the parts I didn't quite understand.
Les Fleurs du Mal is a poetry collection that gathers Charles Baudelaire's poems after the year 1840. The book is divided in several sections such as: two introductory poems (Au poète impeccable and Au lecteur), Spleen et idéal, Tableaux parisiens, Le vin, Fleurs du Mal, Révolte, La Mort, Pièces condamnées, Appendice I. Supplément aux Fleurs du Mal (Nouvelles Fleurs du Mal, Les Epaves, Poèmes de l'édition posthume des Fleurs du Mal), Appendice II. Autre pièces and Appendice III. Documents divers (which include the preface for a new edition of the book, four short articles in which Baudelaire explains why he wrote Les Fleurs du Mal and which were his intentions; and there are also some notes and documents Baudelaire wrote to his lawyer).
Les Fleurs du Mal was a disputed and very controversial book for the middle of nineteenth century France, because of the brutal and `obscene' language Baudelaire choose to write in, the themes which were considered taboos at that time (sexuality, homosexuality, vice, superficiality of women, hypocrisy and ignorance of society, religion seen through a dark perspective, etc.)
Baudelaire led the way for some important literary movements of late nineteenth century and early twentieth century such as decadence, symbolism and modernism. He made the poem more abstract through the help of suggestions, correspondence and synesthesia; thus his work inspired many important poets, such as Stéphane Mallarmé, Paul Verlaine, Arthur Rimbaud, Pull Valéry, etc.
Les Fleurs du Malis a must-read book because it brought a breath of fresh air to the romantic and Parnassian poetry, and it also opened the gate to modernism and postmodernism.
