Flowers of Evil by Charles Baudelaire
Book DescriptionThe greatest French poet of the 19th century, Baudelaire was also the first truly modem poet, and his direct and indirect influence on the literature of our time has been immeasurable.

The French texts as established by Yves Gerard Le Dantec for the Pleiade 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.
