Editorial Reviews

Nation
Baudelaire revoiced...Howard's achievement is such that we can be confident that his Flowers of Evil will long stand as definitive, a superb guide to France's greatest poet.
New Republic
[An] intelligent responsiveness to the poem's meaning informs almost every translation in this volume.
Boston Globe
Not until now has there been an edition of the entire work which successfully captures the distinctive voice of Baudelaire...The level of success among 151 lyrics is so high as to guarantee that Richard Howard's will be the definitive translation in the foreseeable future.
New York Times Book Review
Readers of English do not have to take Baudelaire on faith any longer. For the first time he is present among us, vivid and surprisingly intact, in these fine translations.
Washington Post Book World
Richard Howard, generally esteemed as the finest American translator from the French of the postwar era, offers a new version of this masterpiece...It is indubitably the English edition to acquire.
New York Review of Books
A deft and patient new translation of Les Fleurs Du Mal...Howard, it seems to me, has done what he has set out to, has given us, in English and in verse, a Baudelaire both immediately recognizable and impressively varied...It is a considerable achievement.

Meet the Author

Charles-Pierre Baudelaire est un poète français, né à Paris le 9 avril 1821 et mort dans la même ville le 31 août 1867 (à 46 ans). Dante d'une époque déchue 1 selon le mot de Barbey d'Aurevilly, nourri de romantisme, tourné vers le classicisme, à la croisée entre le Parnasse et le symbolisme, chantre de la modernité , il occupe une place considérable parmi les poètes français pour un recueil certes bref au regard de l'œuvre de son contemporain Victor Hugo (Baudelaire s'ouvrit à son éditeur de sa crainte que son volume ne ressemblât trop à une plaquette...), mais qu'il aura façonné sa vie durant : Les Fleurs du mal.
Au cœur des débats sur la fonction de la littérature de son époque, Baudelaire détache la poésie de la morale, la proclame tout entière destinée au Beau et non à la Vérité2. Comme le suggère le titre de son recueil, il a tenté de tisser des liens entre le mal et la beauté, le bonheur fugitif et l'idéal inaccessible (À une passante), la violence et la volupté (Une martyre), mais aussi entre le poète et son lecteur ( Hypocrite lecteur, mon semblable, mon frère ) et même entre les artistes à travers les âges (Les Phares3). Outre des poèmes graves (Semper Eadem) ou scandaleux (Delphine et Hippolyte), il a exprimé la mélancolie (Mœsta et errabunda), l'horreur (Une charogne) et l'envie d'ailleurs (L'Invitation au voyage) à travers l'exotisme.
