Selected Poems

Charles P. Baudelaire


Publisher:Penguin Books

The poems of Charles Baudelaire are filled with explicit and unsettling imagery, depicting with intensity every day subjects ignored by French literary conventions of his time. “Tableaux parisiens” portrays the brutal life of Paris' thieves, drunkards and prostitutes amid the debris of factories and poorhouses. In love poems such as “Le Beau Navire”, flights of lyricism entwine with languorous eroticism, while prose poems such as “La Chambre Double” deal with the agonies of artistic creation and mortality. With their startling combination of harsh reality and sublime beauty, formal ingenuity and revolutionary poetic language, these poems, including a generous selection from “Les Fleurs du Mal”, show Baudelaire as one of the most influential poets of the nineteenth century.
