Les fleurs du mal charles baudelaire
Les Fleurs du Mal by Charles BaudelaireAfter reading Baudelaire, I suddenly find myself wanting to smoke cigarettes and say very cynical things while donning a trendy haircut. Plus, if I didnt 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. Im sure it looses something in the translation... but its still great stuff nonetheless.
And with a title like Flowers of Evil, how can you go wrong?
Charles Baudelaire - Les fleurs du mal
Baudelaire's poetry was well-known long before it was collected in Les Fleurs du mal in A few scattered poems had appeared in journals and reviews, and Baudelaire had also achieved notoriety reciting his lurid verses aloud. Several times he announced that he was going to publish a collection of poems, giving titles such as Les Lesbiennes The Lesbians and Les Limbes Limbo. However, the definitive title was not to come until , when "fleurs du mal" was suggested by his friend Hippolypte Babou, and publication was not to come until , when his friend Auguste Poulet-Malassis printed the first edition of "ces fleurs maladives," as Baudelaire wrote in the dedication. Les Fleurs du mal appeared on the bookshelves of Paris in June Eleven hundred copies had been printed for sale, with an additional twenty copies hors commerce printed on fine paper.
