Charles Baudelaire - The Flowers of Evil
Cover design by Marco Sabbatani
Baudelaire’s most famous poetical effort is the result of a slow and immersed work. The poems focus is on death, of disease, of prostitution, of the ordinary street life of Paris, of everything that shed light or spoke to humanity. Scandalous at the time of first publishing, and still challenging nowadays. Some critics call it a “masterpiece of passion, art and poetry”.
Our edition comprises all the original poems, including the censored ones, following the 1868 edition. It summarizes our favourite translations by William Aggeler, Roy Campbell, Cyril Scott and more.
