    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 my French was better, so that I could read it in its intended language I m sure it looses something in the translation but it s still great stuff nonetheless And with a title like Flowers of Evil, how can you go 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 Baud...

    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 surrealism I loved to read of prophetic dreams with occasional moments of grace, where the fallen world seems to transform itself into an eternally beautiful moment As always with poetry we have our preferences, 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 surrealism I loved to read of prophetic dreams with occasional moments of grace, where the fallen world seems to transform itself into an eternally beautiful moment As always with poetry we have our preferences, those that touches us deep...

    Here s a recent essay on Baudelaire from the trusty, always interesting online mag The Millions 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 people liked By this I don t mean Francophiles or the merely pretentious but there was something that set a devotee of C.B apart from your average earnest, quavering, verbose, nervous poet or poetry fanboy It s hard to Here s a recent essay on Baudelaire from the trusty, always interesting online mag The Millions 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 people liked By this I don t mean Francophiles or the merely pretentious but there was something that set a devotee of C.B apart from your average earnest, quavering, verbose, nervous poet or poetry fanboy It s hard to put it into words maybe you know it when you see it but there was something sort ofelegantandremovedand cynical about somebody who felt like carting around this haunted menagerie everywhere they went, the way you just do with your favorite poets I m no stranger to French poetry or literary bleakness, believe you me, but there was always something slightly creepy about Baudelaire, I could ...

    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 spiritualistic breath that is drawn beyond Religion and any atheistic and positivist conception Nature pulsates with spirituality, the consecrated fire of Prometheus is poetic inspiration, and Hate is a demon that c 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 spiritualistic breath that is drawn beyond Religion and any atheistic and positivist conception Nature pulsates with spirituality, the consecrated fire of Prometheus...

    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 evil, what with its mephitic yet oh so alluring aroma, is exactly what this book is about a collection of poems and elegies reflecting Baudelaire s views on our poor human condition stemming mainly from our doomed lives 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 evil, what with its mephitic yet oh so alluring aroma, is exactly what this book is about a collection of poems and elegies reflecting Baudelaire s views on our poor human condition stemming mainly from our doomed lives upon which hovers like the sword of Damocles the inevitability of death, while all the while we keep on fooling ourselves by pu...

    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 emphasis on beauty and innocence, even alongside the seamier aspects of humanity, reinforce an existentialist ideal that rejects morality and embraces transgression Objects, sensations, and experiences often clash, implici 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 emphasis on beauty and innocence, even alongside the seamier aspects of humanity, rei...

    And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die for God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil GenesisEver since the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge was eaten any lore became an attribute of evil So to read books in order to wide one s horizons is just to sign a pact with the devil Pillowed on evil, Satan Trismegist Ceaselessly cradles our enchanted mind, The flawless metal of our will And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die for God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil GenesisEver since the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge was eaten any lore became an attribute of evil So to read books in order to wide one s horizons is just to sign a pact with the devil Pillowed on evil, Satan Trismegist Ceaselessly cradles our enchanted mind, The flawless metal of our will we find Volatilized by this rare alchemist.The Devil holds the puppet threads and swayed By noisome things...

    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 such an extent that at times I forgot I was reading words on a page, its intensity moving my mind into some unknown zone where images, thoughts, and recollections screamed by, colliding with each other So, too, did I fee 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 such an extent that at times I forgot I was reading words on a page, its intensity moving my mind into some unknown zone where images, thoughts, and recollections screamed by, colliding with each other So, too, did I feel at times that even the writer himself was not all there, taken away by a demon, merely the vehicle for some phantasm Yes, Baudelaire sold me on his deal, not merely because of content or form, but because of the legitimacy and authenticity of his spirit that comes through them At its best I lost the idea that Baudelaire was writing, or constructing thoughts and ideas More often I...
