    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, ...

    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, nervou...

    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 re...

    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, sensati...

    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...
