Meet the Author


Charles-Pierre Baudelaire was born on April 9, 1821, in Paris.  Living in the Latin Quarter, he immersed himself in the decadent, bohemian Paris with its salons, absinthe, and passion for all things artistic and unconventional, a lifestyle exacerbated by the inheritance he received from his late father upon turning twenty-one.  Today one cannot visit the grave of Baudelaire without observing numerous bouquets of fresh flowers left in honor of France’s greatest poet.
