Flowers of Evil

Paperback

Book Description
The Flowers of Evil, which T.S. Eliot called the greatest example of modern poetry in any language, shocked the literary world of nineteenth century France with its outspoken portrayal of lesbian love, its linking of sexuality and death, its unremitting irony, and its unflinching celebration
of the seamy side of urban life. Including the French texts and comprehensive explanatory notes to the poems, this extraordinary body of love poems restores the six poems originally banned in 1857, revealing the richness and variety of the collection.

The Mercury Visions of Louis Daguerre

From Publishers Weekly
Smith's clever but uneven debut novel peers into the mind of the eccentric 19th-century French genius who invented the daguerreotype. In 1846, the celebrated photographer Louis Daguerre, his brain addled by the mercury process that made him famous, has a vision of the end of the world, which launches him on a quest to record a series of 10 images before the apocalypse. The aged Daguerre enlists the help of bohemian poet Charles Baudelaire, and together they prowl Paris in search of Daguerre's subjects, including "a beautiful naked woman ," "the perfect Paris boulevard," "the king of France" and Daguerre's childhood friend and long-lost love, Isobel Le Fournier, whose affections he seeks to reclaim. When Daguerre encounters Isobel's daughter, Chloe—now working in a Paris brothel under the name...

How to Read A Poem and Fall in Love with Poetry
Edward Hirsch

March 2000
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Edward Hirsch's primer may very well inspire readers to catch the next flight for Houston and sign up for any and all of his courses. Not for nothing does this attentive and adoring poet-teacher title his book How to Read a Poem and Fall in Love with Poetry; Hirsch's big guide to getting the most out of this form is packed with inspiring examples and thousands of epigrams and allusions. Above all, he is intent on poetry's physical and emotional power. In chapters devoted to the lyric, the narrative, the poetry of sorrow, of ecstasy, of witness, Hirsch continually conveys the sheer ecstasy of this vital act of communication. (He takes us, for instance, with great care and mounting excitement, through Emily Brontë's "Spellbound," which he discovered at age 8 when "baseball season was over for the year.") Above all, there...


Selected Letters of Charles Baudelaire

Feb 1986
Hardcover

From Publishers Weekly
Unlike Flaubert, notes Lloyd in her useful introduciton, Baudelaire (18211867) didn't enjoy writing letters, yet he wrote them with unfailing lucidity and, often, extraordinary intensity of feeling. Ably translated, many published in English for the first time, the letters reveal Baudelaire's harsh daily struggles, exacerbated by syphilis and financial restrictions imposed by his stepfather; his passionate faith in the poetic vocation; his literary preoccupations, particularly as brought into focus by the controversy surrounding The Flowers of Evil; and his relationships with his peers, such as Flaubert, Hugo and Sainte-Beuve, and with women, most notably his mother, who was unable to understand his bohemian lifestyle and to whom he wrote of his mental and physical sufferings with ardent candor. The volume does...

Review
....in certain respects [Martin's] translation stands as the best available rendering of the complete poems..The New Criterion

Book Description
Rimbaud called Charles Baudelaire 'le premier voyant, roi des poetes, un vrai dieu'. The history of modern poetry begins with him. This is a comprehensive translation of all Baudelaire's poetry, excluding only juvenilia, occasional verse and work of doubtful attribution. Baudelaire contemplated a volume of poems that would 'launch him into the future like a cannon-ball'. Here it is in vivid and formally authoritative translation.
