Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

An original and valuable contribution to Baudelaire studies . . . The selection of poems is thoughtful, including both well-known and well-anthologized pieces, as well as lesser-known works, and the essays are supported by excellent and pertinent bibliographies.
--Sima Godfrey University of British Columbia
