Presents fresh insights into one of the most fascinating and enigmatic figures of all literature. Mystic, moralist, sensualist, Satanist, Baudelaire is today the favorite French poet in English-speaking countries. Only since 1920, however, fifty years after his death, has a true understanding and perceptive criticism of his writings emerged. Henri Peyre has selected articles which analyze the poet's work from traditional, platonic, psychological, and aesthetic perspectives.
