Poetry Of Charles Baudelaire
This collection of his poems addresses themes of love, decadence, and death, and includes a selection of his works of poetic prose. Baudelaire's darkly beautiful poetry and lyrical prose never fail to leave a lasting mark on his readers. Controversial and challenging, the outspoken nature of his poems marks him out as a pivotal figure in European literature - a bridge between the Romantics of the past and 20th-century modernism.
Charles Baudelaire is one of the most compelling poets of the 19th century. While Baudelaire’s contemporary Victor Hugo is generally—and sometimes regretfully—acknowledged as the greatest of 19th-century French poets, Baudelaire excels in his unprecedented expression of a complex sensibility and of modern themes within structures of classical rigor and technical artistry. Baudelaire is distinctive in French literature also in that his skills as a prose writer virtually equal his ability as a poet.
