This volume includes a new translation of Les fleurs du mal by Charles Baudelaire (1921 -1967 ), often considered to be France's foremost poet and the first modern one. "Flowers of Evil” was Baudelaire's major work; he worked on it all his adult life, until aphasia robbed him of the use of language. Counting the unnumbered introductory poem "To the Reader", but not the unnumbered and incomplete final "Sketch of an Epilogue for the 2nd Edition", there are 160 poems in the definitive edition published in 1948 by the Club Français du livre. All are included in this volume in both French and English, except for one written in Latin. Les fleurs du mal has seen numerous translations of all or part of the original into English, some in rhyme and meter, others in free verse or prose, some that are close to the French text, others straying far afield. An incomplete one is by Edna St. Vincent Millay, published in 1936. It is the one best known, and rightly so, even though, as has been said, that twentieth century poet tended to employ a nineteenth century vocabulary (whereas that nineteenth century poet, Charles Baudelaire, seems to belong, in thought, emotion and language, squarely in our time.) When the current translator, Robert Scholten, discovered Les fleurs du mal, he fell instantly under its spell, not only of its poetry, but of the truthfulness and courage with which the poet had looked at both the good and the evil in his heart, the light and the dark present in all of us, if not usually in such extremes as in Baudelaire. The events in Scholten's youth in Europe during the nineteen thirties and forties brought into stark vision the reality that love and hatred co-exist in man with more ease than we like to think. So do anxiety and peace, prejudice and tolerance, courage and fear, the joy of living and the fear of death, and a host of other contradictory thoughts and feelings. He learned he was not exempt from such counter-currents. So it was that, many years later, Scholten was struck by the conflicts the poet expressed when he wrote about his long-time and only true love, Jeanne Duval in his suicide letter of 1845) such lines as, in this translation: Mistress of mistresses, memory's mother, Oh you, my devotion and source of delight! Recall how we gently caressed one another, How sweet was the home and how charming the night, Mistress of mistresses, memory's mother! (from "The balcony") --but also, in rebellion against her dominion over him: (You) Who humbled my spirit and dared To make it your bed and domain; To you, infamous one am I paired, Like a galley slave held by a chain... (from "The vampire") --after which it gets worse. Elsewhere, with the raw nerves of anxiety: My reason in vain tried to master the rudder, But, against all my efforts the storm toyed with me, And caused the old wreck of my soul to shudder, As, mastless, it danced on a limitless sea! (from 'The seven old men") --but then, hoping for a moment of calm (while still conscious of pain and fear): Be good, o my Pain, stay calm and have pity, You asked for the Evening; it falls; it is here: A dark atmosphere now envelops the city With its peace, but to some it brings worry and fear (from "Meditation") Many more examples of such opposite feelings could be given, but, of course, not all of Baudelaire's poems are about the conflicts in our hearts: their range is far and wide. Some are rather philosophical or visionary in nature, some touch upon religion, whether of the American Indian or the

Upon its original publication in 1857 Charles Baudelaire's "Les Fleurs du Mal" or "The Flowers of Evil" was embroiled in controversy. Within a month of its publication the French authorities brought an action against the author and the book's publisher claiming that the work was an insult to public decency. Eventually the French courts would acknowledge the literary merit of Baudelaire's work but ordered that six poems in particular should be banned from subsequent publication. The notoriety caused by this scandal would ultimately work in the author's favor causing the initial publication to sell out, thus prompting the publication of another edition. The second edition was published in 1861, it included an additional thirty-five poems, with the exclusion of the six poems censored by the French government. In this volume we reproduce that 1861 edition along with the six censored poems in an English translation by William Aggeler along with the original French. Rich with symbolism, "The Flowers of Evil" is rightly considered a classic of the modernist literary movement. Its themes of decadence and eroticism seek to exhibit Baudelaire's criticism of the Parisian society of his time. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper and includes an introduction by Frank Pearce Sturm.

Distributed by the University of Nebraska Press for Whale and Star Press Immediately after the publication of Les Fleurs du Malin 1857, Baudelaire was prosecuted and found guilty of obscenity and blasphemy. Today, Les Fleurs du Malis considered by many to be the most important and influential poetry collection published in Europe in the 19th century. For Baudelaire, love was the essence of the forbidden, and he saw the individual as a divided being, drawn equally towards good and evil, the ideal and the sensual. His originality sets him apart from the dominant literary schools of his time and his poetry is regarded as the last brilliant summation of Romanticism, the precursor of Symbolism, and the first expression of Modernity. This volume brings together, for the first time, Les Fleurs du Maland the original etchings by Odilon Redon inspired by the text. These wonderful examples of the work of Odilon Redon, the greatest of the French Symbolists, depict the world of fantasy, which he believed few dared to envision.

"In his remarkable introductory essay 'Russia's Fleurs du Mal' Victor Erofeyev discusses the alternative literature, the new Russian writing that is supplanting both the hothouse flowers of Soviet socialism and the polemics of dissidence. The new Russian literature as evidenced by this collection is characteristically raw, abrasive and sceptical, calling everything into question, including the 'Boring West'." "Writer such as Andrei Sinyavsky have concentrated on reinventing a dead language; one of them, Vladimir Sorokin, refuses to be called a writer at all, acceding only to his vocation as 'a leading monster' of the new Russian literature. Within this collection can be found the particular cynicism of Dovlatov and Limonov, the voluptuous style of Tatyana Tolstaya and the poignant wit of Evgeny Kharitonov, among many others." "A landmark in new Russian fiction, this volume brings together the works of twenty-one leading writers, some already acclaimed, many others reaching a new audience in the West for the first time. It has been edited by Victor Erofeyev, with Andrew Reynolds, who has also translated some of the works."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
