Read full description of the books:



I am breaking with my tradition here and reviewing a book that I haven't finished. I think the rules are different with poetry, also it was due back at the library. I enjoy reading Baudelaire's poetry aloud to myself, as he has such a way with assonance and rhymes. It's an entirely different experience to prose-reading. Rather than hurrying to the end, it feels natural to dwell on every paragraph; read it aloud several times to practise pronounciation, attempt a translation, read the provided translation, then read the French aloud once more. My appreciation of poetry is simplistic and uninformed, but I find Baudelaire's beautiful. I also liked the introduction that gave context to Baudelaire's life and work. At some point I'll get this book out of the library again and read further.

Read information about the author

Ebook Selected Poems (Everyman's Pocket Poets) read Online! Charles Pierre Baudelaire was a 19th century French poet, translator, and literary and art critic whose reputation rests primarily on Les Fleurs du Mal; (1857; The Flowers of Evil) which was perhaps the most important and influential poetry collection published in Europe in the 19th century. Similarly, his Petits poèmes en prose (1868; "Little Prose Poems") was the most successful and innovative early experiment in prose poetry of the time.

Known for his highly controversial, and often dark poetry, as well as his translation of the tales of Edgar Allan Poe, Baudelaire's life was filled with drama and strife, from financial disaster to being prosecuted for obscenity and blasphemy. Long after his death many look upon his name as representing depravity and vice. Others see him as being the poet of modern civilization, seeming to speak directly to the 20th century.
