Flowers of Evil : A Selection
by Charles Baudelaire and Marthiel Mathews and Jackson Mathews




Overview -
Modern poetry begins with Charles Baudelaire (1821-67), who employed his unequalled technical mastery to create the shadowy, desperately dramatic urban landscape -- populated by the addicted and the damned -- which so compellingly mirrors our modern condition. Deeply though darkly spiritual, titanic in the changes he wrought, Baudelaire looms over all the work, great and small, created in his wake.

This book contains selections from Flowers of Evil (Les Fleurs du Mal), a volume of poems once notorious for their themes of eroticism, lesbianism, morbidity and rebellion, but which are admired today for their depth of thought and feeling, as well as their remarkable sensuality.
