    2. A friend said they have to read poetry slowly, take their time with each individual poem, let it sink in, understand it I don t pretend to understand poetry and that doesn t stop me from reading it, and, when I read it, I devour it Buckets of it All at once The faster the better More than prose, poetry for me is experiential Narrative or imagistic, I don t care It washes over me and my brain is doing little than processing the letters Good Distract the mind and let the body embrace the poems at [...]

    3. A collection of French poems1 March 2013 The problem with reading poetry is that generally it is not something you simply read over once and then put it back on your shelf Some of the older poetic forms, such as Dante, Homer, and Milton, you would do that, namely because the poetic form was used as a means of telling a story Modern poetry however cannot be read in the same way Instead, as my English teachers would tell me, you read it once, think it over, read it again, and think over it again T [...]

    4. this this is blood and roses, sex, death, drugs and despair this is black eyeliner, red lipstick, blue velvet and purple prose this is absinthe, opium, clove cigarettes and the sweat of fever dreams this is a cemetery at midnight, candle wax dripping by moonlight and a vial of tears worn around your neck this is the renaissance faire, meat is murder and a pale, effete fellow in pince nez sniffing, but it s so much better in french in other words, only the best thing ever.

    5. Ovaj izbor poezije predstavlja ono to Bodler zaista jeste Pjesme koje se meni najvi e dopadaju su one o ma kama Pjesnik u njima pronalazi sebe Ma ke su tako misti nem umiljate, pametne Bodler na tako poseban na in govori o umjetnosti, o individuama koja nikako ne mogu da se uklope u okvire realnog svijeta On se izdi e iz irokih masa.

    6. I could not locate the exact same book The book I read was translated by Keith Waldrop an excellent translation New to Baudelaire, I enjoyed it very One of your stops when reading the classics.

    7. A classic A book I keep on my night table Inspiring and passionate Great poet, great critic.

    8. Liked him when I was young, but the sun shines brighter now, so no longer quite as much, although I still admire his stuff.

    9. Speaking of Richard Howard s translation of Les Fleurs dul Mal , my great teacher Derek Walcott roared Reeeechaaahhd did not use rhyyyme, friends He had just plunged my own copy into the kitchen trash can and, out of respect, I haven t replaced it This pronouncement was repeated when, the next Monday, at the suitably ungodly hour of 9 a.m when I was perched on one of his windowsills in that same smoke filled room at Boston University where Robert Lowell and Anne Sexton had taught Derek had a poi [...]

    10. The GiantessAt that time when Nature in her powerful ardor Conceived monstrous children each day, I would have loved living near a young giantess, As a voluptuous cat at the feet of a queen I should like to have seen her body flower with her soul And grow freely in her dreadful games And guess whether her heart conceals a somber flame From the wet fog swimming in her eyes Feel at my leisure her magnificent shape Climb on the slope of her huge knees, And at times in summer, when the unhealthy sun [...]

    11. While I do love some of Baudelaire s poetry, I felt this collection was uneven Paris Spleen is interesting but it is not poetry, so it kinda drags down the flow from Flowers of Evil I d rather have read of his poems in this volume.

    12. My friend Tom recently said he thought Baudelaire was the ultimate proto punk, and I agree with him.

    13. My favorite translation of Baudelaire However, I don t read speak French so I can t attest to its accuracy

    14. I enjoyed the Paris Spleen portion of this collection for its imaginative characters and situations very much a compendium of contemporary mythologies.

    15. Thank goodness we read some lovely poetry this as well as Rondard and DuBellay and drama my senior year of high school to offset Camus and other depressing modern French fiction

    16. I ve had this for years and I refer back to it at least once every couple of weeks A great translation and a wonderful collection.
