"Now is the time to get absolutely drunk! On wine, on virtue, on whatever you may please." -Baudelaire. read it and believe that God has a darkside that is beautiful.

Good English renderings that sing. I have an older Heritage Press collection with some of the same translations (Millay, Squire), but this collection boasts more recent poets like Fitzgerald, Kunitz, Wilbur, and Huxley. I still like the older collection: it's a little more archaic and therefore more Gothic, but these fresher translations do leap and soar and claw their ways out of the pages, too. This is the only edition I've found that includes Baudelaire's prefaces. They alone make this book a must-have. As with all ND books, this one is of archival paper, as God (or Satan Trismegistus) intended. It's too bad there are no end notes. Otherwise, this might be a perfect scholarly (and portable) edition of the Flowers.
