Abstract:

"Baudelaire's Fleurs du Mal, which in successive editions contained all of his published poems, has for over a hundred years now opened new vistas for man's imagination and quickened the sensibilities of poets everywhere. The greatest French Poet of the 19th century, Baudelaire was also the first truly modern poet, and his direct and indirect influence on the literature of our time has been immeasurable."

"Selected Flowers of Evil contains 53 poems which the Mathews feel best represent the total work and which, in their opinion, have been most successfully rendered into English. The French texts as established by Yves Gérard Le Dantec for the Pléiade edition are printed en face. Included are Baudelaire's "Three Drafts of a Preface" and brief notes on the nineteen translators whose work is represented.:--Back cover.
