The flowers of evil by Charles Baudelaire( Book )

3,195 editions published between 1855 and 2015 in 33 languages and held by 14,243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The poetic masterpiece of the great nineteenth-century writer Charles Baudelaire, The Flowers of Evil is one of the most frequently read and studied works in the French language. In this compelling new translation of Baudelaire's most famous collection, Keith Waldrop recasts the poet's original French alexandrines and other poetic arrangements into versets, a form that hovers between poetry and prose. Maintaining Baudelaire's complex view of sound and structure, Waldrop's translation mirrors the intricacy of the original without attempting to replicate its inimitable verse. The result is a powerful new re-imagining, one that is, almost paradoxically, closer to Baudelaire's own poetry than any previous English translation. Including the six poems banned from the first edition, this Flowers of Evil preserves the complexity, eloquence, and dark humor of its author. Brought here to new life, it is hypnotic, frank, and forceful."--Publisher's website
The Parisian prowler : Le spleen de Paris, petits poèmes en prose by Charles Baudelaire( Book )

1,097 editions published between 1800 and 2015 in 27 languages and held by 6,205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Edouard Manet to T.S. Eliot to Jim Morrison, the reach of Charles Baudelaire's influence is beyond estimation. In this prize-winning translation of his no-longer-neglected masterpiece, Baudelaire offers a singular view of 1850s Paris. Evoking a mélange of reactions, these fifty "fables of modern life" take us on various tours led by a flâneur, an incognito stroller. Through day and night, in gleaming cafés and filthy side streets, this alienated yet compassionate esthete muses on the bizarre in the commonplace, the sublime in the mundane. As the work reveals a teeming metropolis on the eve of great change, we see a Paris as contradictory, surprising, and ultimately unknowable as our guide himself. Complemented by period illustrations, The Parisian Prowler is an essential companion to Les Fleurs du Mal and other works by the father of modern poetry.--From publisher description

Art in Paris, 1845-1862 by Charles Baudelaire( Book )

30 editions published between 1965 and 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,020 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Charles Baudelaire, one of the greatest French poets of the nineteenth century, has been described as "the father of modern art criticism." Rejecting a cold, mathematical, heartless approach, Baudelaire demanded instead a criticism that was "partial, passionate and political" and, he added, "amusing and poetic." His starting point was always the shock of pleasure experienced on the first visual encounter with a work of art. Eloquent, original, his writing conveys the excitement of personal involvement. This new paperback version of the highly praised earlier edition contains Baudelaire's accounts of the art exhibitions held in Paris between 1845 and 1862. There are extended reviews of the Salons of 1845, 1846, and 1859; three articles on the Exposition Universelle of 1855 (the first containing a major statement of Baudelaire's critical method); an essay on the special exhibition held at the Bazar Bonne-Nouvelle in 1846, in which Baudelaire gives his views on David and his School; and the article "Painters and Etchers" of 1862, which includes Baudelaire's only published reference to Manet and an enthusiastic welcome to Whistler. Jonathan Mayne's translation captures all the artist's spontaneity, and Mayne's extensive notes will help English-speaking readers to discover for themselves the ideas and insights of Baudelaire."--Amazon

Renowned poet Charles Baudelaire played a significant role in introducing Edgar Allan Poe to French readers by publishing widely read criticisms and translations of Poe's writings. The two writers shared an appreciation for the exotic, a taste for morbid subjects, and a devotion to artistic purity. Baudelaire immersed himself in the study of English for the express purpose of doing justice to Poe's works, and his translations established his reputation in the French literary world well before the publication of his most famous book of poetry, Les Fleurs du Mal.

La Fanfarlo by Charles Baudelaire( Book )

97 editions published between 1910 and 2013 in 16 languages and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Only poets are innocent enough to invent such monstrosities. Ten years before Baudelaire published his masterpiece, The Flowers of Evil, the great poet penned the only prose fiction of his career: La Fanfarlo. The novella describes the torrid real-life affair the poet had with Jean Duval, a dancer whose beauty and sexuality Baudelaire came to obsess over. The outcome is a work of raw emotional power and a clear distillation of the Parisian's poetic genius. As Baudelaire himself said, "Always be a poet, even in prose."
