Les fleurs du mal : the complete text of The flowers of evil by Charles Baudelaire( Book )
84 editions published between 1942 and 1997 in French and held by 527 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

Le choix des lettres a été fait en fonction des idées littéraires et artistiques de Baudelaire, plutôt que de sa vie familiale et de ses démêlés rabâchés avec sa mère. Dans cette autobiographie morcelée s'expose le travail du poète, en lutte avec son rêve, en proie à la haine de soi. On y trouvera, entre autres, des lettres à Sainte-Beuve, à Proudhon, à Gautier, à Flaubert, à Nadar

Artificial paradise; on hashish and wine as means of expanding individuality by Charles Baudelaire( Book )
11 editions published between 1928 and 1966 in French and held by 134 libraries worldwide
At the time of its release in 1860, Charles Baudelaire's Artificial Paradises (Les Paradis Artificiels) met with immediate praise. One of the most important French symbolists, Baudelaire led a debauched, violent, and ultimately tragic life, dying an opium addict in 1867. This book, a response to Thomas De Quincey's Confessions of an Opium Eater, serves as a memoir of Baudelaire's last years. In this beautifully wrought portrait of the effects of wine, opium, and hashish on the mind, Baudelaire captures the dreamlike visions he experienced during his narcotic trances. These hallucinations, sometimes exquisite, sometimes disturbing, and the delusions of grandeur that often accompanied them, constitute the Paradis Artificiels, the gorgeous yet false worlds of ecstasy that eventually led to his ruin. Contrasting the effects of hashish and opium with those of wine, Baudelaire concludes that "wine exalts the will, hashish destroys it" and makes idlers of all those who use it

"This edition puts Eureka in context, explaining Poe's excellent grasp of then-new developments in astronomy, his often-prescient considerations of what was known and what might come next. (Poe is especially good on space-time) and the close connections between Eureka and the thought and attitudes of his era." "Through extensive annotations this edition of Eureka demonstrates intimate connections with Poe's poetry, fiction, and criticism; with his career and aspirations, his humor and satire; and with his love of grand literary effects."--Jacket
