    2. On Black Friday I hardly stirred from bed but if I did not stamp on an old lady s face to reach that big TV, I did manage to prop myself on the pillows and drowsily order La Fanfarlo, once alerted to the 50% discount Melville House was offering The slim pamphlet like paperback arrived this Monday morning, just as I was stepping off into the snowfall of the weekend blizzard and a 10 degree wind I backed into the living room, ground and brewed coffee, and sat out the day among my books Baudelaire [...]

    3. Only poets are innocent enough to invent such monstrosities.Perhaps I should have enjoyed this It appeared jerky, fissured with jump cuts and unsettling twitches I realized early that this reminded me of Balzac , who handles this theme better It has been a strange 10 days and this may have bled into my reading A misfit man of letters encounters a childhood flame and helps to fix a man doing his lady wrong This is achieved by wooing the wrong This won t dissuade me from my Baudelaire fascination [...]

    4. La nica novela escrita por Baudelaire a sus j venes 25 a os que involucra amor, sensualidad y romanticismo.

    5. Cuando escribi La Fanfarlo, Baudelaire ten a ventiseis a os y cre a que lo peor que pod a pasarle era convertirse en un ciudadano prolijamente indecente, con una esposa bien conectada, un cargo pol tico y responsabilidades.

    6. La historia, como no pod a ser de otra manera, pareciera que llevase escrito el nombre de Charles Baudelaire por todas partes Obviamente no lo conoc personalmente, pero habiendo le do tanto de l y sobre l puedo decir que m s all que lo presentado guste o no al lector, es algo que podr a ser t pico de alguien como este autor lo que se narra Y la manera en que lo narra, a mi personalmente me deleita hasta casi el xtasis Como buen poeta negro, pareciera que el grado de delicadeza casi m gica fuera [...]

    7. La Fanfarlo follows themes of curiosity, love beauty and cynicism It is well known and quite obvious that the poetic dandy of a protagonist, Samuel Cramer, is, at the very least, modeled after Baudelaire and possibly an autobiographical roman a clef character The novella itself faithfully follows the prosaic footsteps of Honor de Balzac while splicing Baudelairean ideas on aesthetics and loyalties to the virtue of beauty The novella begins by describing the young, complex and compelling Samuel C [...]

    8. Odd, apparently highly biographical little story that does an admirable job of keeping the reader at a distance There are simply too many devices, too many allusions, too many asides, however, to make things compelling Baudelaire is adept foremost at self deprecation, ceaselessly mocking his fictional stand in, the excessively romantic, hypocritical poet actor Samuel Cramer who nevertheless gets plenty of time to talk and act ridiculous The translation is odd, too, occasionally opting, particula [...]

    9. Firstly, this is a 50 page short story this edition of the book looks meaty because it also contains the entire text in French.Generally, I like Baudelaire and there are moments when the prose of La Fanfarlo shows some of his wit and poetic sensibility But much of the story suffers from his pretension and his need to drop unnecessary and distracting literary references all over the place It s a young man s book these are not surprising errors The book is very much in dialogue with the French au [...]

    10. This was the second selection from Melville House s Novella Book Club this month I don t generally get on well with French literature or historical books about France so even though I was game to give this short read my best effort I wasn t too impressed Very verbose with flowery and excessive language Paragraphs could have been written in a sentence or omitted altogether Divided mainly into 3 parts, one on the poet, one on the poet s friend, a spurned wife, and the last on the poet and an actre [...]

    11. Fanfarlo began as a book full of promise for me a novella, Baudelaire, obsessive love affairs with a burlesque dancer, amid wine I figured what s not to love And the middle of the book is fantastic the time we hit the midpoint, and the sublimely terrific line Only poets are innocent enough to invent such monstrosities, everything seems possible But the book sputtered and farted it s way to the end, and it s the first time in a long time that I wished a novella had words Still, Melville House pu [...]

    12. I freely admit that this book was pulled off my shelf today in hopes of hitting my 2015 goal It appears to the be the shortest of the Melville House Art of the Novella books that I have However, this is exactly why I have loved that series, especially when the books arrived as part of a subscription It was a random opportunity to try something new A perfect final book of 2015.

    13. A fine and instructive prelude to Baudelaire s poetic work In each of the scenes I detect the thought processes that would later re articulate themselves in his poetry the main character s deepening relationship with Fanfarlo prefigures the Invitation to the Voyage, for instance, and the tone of voice in each chapter wouldn t be out of place in his later prose poems To a new Baudelaire reader, however, the Flowers of Evil and the prose poems remain the best entry point I can think of.

    14. As a fan of Baudelaire s poems I was interested in this novella, and excited to pick up an edition from Melville House whose books are always so aesthetically pleasing But in this case I d say Melville House s physical object was fulfilling than the contents Overall the story and the characters weren t especially engaging, and although there were a handful of memorable lines they seem to work better out of context than in the sort of pedestrian story.

    15. This novella was really interesting I gave it four stars for the beauty of the writing, not necessarily because it was absorbing or riveting What made this interesting was the knowledge that the author is writing about his own life and that the disparaging comments and descriptions he uses about the main character are a reflection of the disgust he feels with his past choices and mistakes Quite an interesting read.

    16. A escrita prima pela eloqu ncia, como apan gio de Baudelaire Como romance um livro desequilibrado e curto, onde a personagem principal surge apenas a meio do livro, no meio de um discurso Sem esp rito cr tico ou sem procurar tra os biogr ficos de Baudelaire no jovem poeta enamorado, uma leitura grandiosa.

    17. This was a very small, intimate book, which got into the minds and motives of smug artsy Frenchfolk a hundred or so years ago I have a great deal of trouble emphathising with or understanding people s motives, so obviously this was a difficult book for me Nonetheless, it felt like it was very well written, and if this is the sort of thing you understand, I think you might like it.

    18. Me parece un libro bastante ameno e interesante, ideal para los interesados en aquellas historias inteligentes donde se atisba la lucha de sexos y que encima se lee en un suspiro, por lo que no hay excusa para dejarlo pasar Pincha el enlace para leer mi opini n completa sobre este libro elladofriodemialmohada

    19. Read my review on my blog 50ayear 2013 03 16 8 f ter an impassioned reading of a beautiful book, his unwitting conclusion was now that is beautiful enough for me to have written and, in only the space of a dash, from there to think therefore I wrote it.

    21. He resumes his path toward a desert that he knows is similar to the one he just crossed, escorted by the pale phantom they call Reason, who lights up the aridity of his path with a weak lantern, and who, when the thirst of passion comes back from time to time, quenches it with the poison of ennui

    22. I had 40 minutes to kill at the library, and had just finished leafing through a roughly 24x14 Arno Schmidt folio and failing to find Leonora Carrington art books Perfectly, this was only 60 tiny pages long I d of finished it, too, but my ride arrived early soon.

    23. I can t even make an atempt to put pretty words forward for this review Not when Baudelaire s proze is what it is Suffice to say in a sentence If you do not read and like Boudelaire, I fear you may be a very cold, cold person One exception if you hate cynicism, I ll forgive you.

    24. Aunque no a la altura de su poes a, especialmente de su poes a en prosa, esta peque a novela resulta una buena lectura para comprender el periodo en el que Baudelaire escribi su obra.
