    Charles Baudelaire n'a jamais accepté le remariage de sa mère avec Aupick alors qu'il n'avait que 7 ans. Est-ce là la cause de son esprit rebelle ? Toujours est-il qu'il se fait exclure du lycée Louis-le-Grand, fermement décidé à mener une vie de dandy. Décision contrariée par son beau-père, qui le fait embarquer de force sur un paquebot en direction des Indes, puis qui place sous tutelle judiciaire la fortune héritée de son père et menacée d'être rapidement dilapidée. Contraint de travailler, Baudelaire se consacre à la critique d'art et à la traduction des oeuvres d'Edgar Poe. En 1857 paraissent 'Les Fleurs du mal', recueil de vers exaltant la beauté en germe dans toute...read more

    The Flowers of Evil (Les Fleurs du Mal) is a collection of poems by Charles Baudelaire influential on several levels. Fellow artists were impressed and unsettled when it was published in 1857; one described the effect as “immense, prodigious, unexpected, mingled with admiration and some indefinable anxious fear”. Admirers included Victor Hugo and Gustave Flaubert, who wrote “you are as unyielding as marble and as penetrating as English mist”. The general public, however, was scandalized by the themes of sex and death and frank treatment of subjects such as lesbianism, which led to a prosecution of Baudelaire, his publisher and printer for offenses against publish morals.

    Sensual, macabre, joyous and liberating, The Flowers of Evil, or, Les Fleurs du Mal, is a beautifully debauched reflection on dreams, sin, life and death. With subjects ranging from travel to drugs, sex to faith, sleep to contemplation, Baudelaire finds new beauty in the most sinister and corrupt of situations. His morbid and nightmarish Romanticism was completely unique: cynical and bleak, but also inspiring, lifted by magnificent imagery and melodious language. The book was highly controversial upon its release and Napoleon III's government prosecuted Baudelaire for 'an insult to public decency'; six of the poems were banned until as recently as...read more

    Charles Pierre Baudelaire (9 de abril de 1821-31 de agosto de 1867) fue un poeta, crítico de arte y traductor francés.

Las influencias más importantes sobre él fueron Théophile Gautier, Joseph de Maistre (de quien dijo que le había enseñado a pensar) y, en particular, Edgar Allan Poe, a quien tradujo extensamente.

    First published in 1752, Micromegas is one of Voltaire's best-known works. It is a tale of mordant irony, and actually the original science-fiction short story. Arriving on Earth from the star Sirius, the gigantic explorer Micromégas discovers the people of Earth, so small compared to him that he first believes that no creature this size can hope to achieve any degree of intelligence; he will soon discover the ways and thoughts of these diminutive people, who clearly have an over-inflated idea of their own importance in the universe. Voltaire's extrapolations of sun-powered interstellar flight, alien civilizations, and the two moons of Mars, are designed to make us see ourselves in a new...read more
