À propos de ce livre électronique

En juin 1857, Charles Baudelaire publie Les Fleurs du Mal, quelques mois seulement après que Flaubert a été jugé pour outrage à la morale publique et religieuse et aux bonnes moeurs à cause d'extraits de Madame Bovary jugés trop sulfureux. Sans surprise, il est accusé à son tour. La justice, qui a finalement acquitté le romancier, condamne le poète maudit et le contraint à supprimer six pièces, dont Les Bijoux et Les Métamorphoses du vampire, pour leur caractère explicitement érotique et provocateur. Ce n'est qu'en 1949 que Baudelaire est réhabilité à titre posthume, la cour reconnaissant bien tard le frisson nouveau que ce recueil apporte à la littérature...

Charles Baudelaire

Charles Baudelaire (1821-1867) was a French poet. Born in Paris, Baudelaire lost his father at a young age. Raised by his mother, he was sent to boarding school in Lyon and completed his education at the Lycée Louis-le-Grand in Paris, where he gained a reputation for frivolous spending and likely contracted several sexually transmitted diseases through his frequent contact with prostitutes. After journeying by sea to Calcutta, India at the behest of his stepfather, Baudelaire returned to Paris and began working on the lyric poems that would eventually become The Flowers of Evil (1857), his most famous work. Around this time, his family placed a hold on his inheritance, hoping to protect Baudelaire from his worst impulses. His mistress Jeanne Duval, a woman of mixed French and African ancestry, was rejected by the poet’s mother, likely leading to Baudelaire’s first known suicide attempt. During the Revolutions of 1848, Baudelaire worked as a journalist for a revolutionary newspaper, but soon abandoned his political interests to focus on his poetry and translations of the works of Thomas De Quincey and Edgar Allan Poe. As an arts critic, he promoted the works of Romantic painter Eugène Delacroix, composer Richard Wagner, poet Théophile Gautier, and painter Édouard Manet. Recognized for his pioneering philosophical and aesthetic views, Baudelaire has earned praise from such artists as Arthur Rimbaud, Stéphane Mallarmé, Marcel Proust, and T. S. Eliot. An embittered recorder of modern decay, Baudelaire was an essential force in revolutionizing poetry, shaping the outlook that would drive the next generation of artists away from Romanticism towards Symbolism, and beyond. Paris Spleen (1869), a posthumous collection of prose poems, is considered one of the nineteenth century’s greatest works of literature.
