November 2014 Book Selection

Fleurs-du-mal_titel

Our November 2014 Book Selection is Charles Baudelaire’s collection of poetry The Flowers of Evil (French, 1857/1861).

“In the annals of literature, few volumes of poetry have achieved the influence and notoriety of ‘The Flowers of Evil (Les Fleurs dur Mal) by Charles Baudelaire (1821-67). Banned and slighted in his lifetime, the book that contains all of Baudelaire’s verses has opened up vistas to the imagination and quickened sensibilities of poets everywhere.”
