Includes translations of Baudelaire's works Petits Poemes en Prose / Les Fleurs du Mal / Les Paradis Artificiels Charles Baudelaire (1821 1867) was a French poet who also produced notable work as an essayist, art critic, and pioneering translator of Edgar Allan Poe. His most famous work, Les Fleurs du mal (The Flowers of Evil), expresses the changing nature of beauty in modern, industrializing Paris during the 19th century. Baudelaire's highly original style of prose-poetry influenced a whole generation of poets including Paul Verlaine, Arthur Rimbaud and Stéphane Mallarmé among many others. He is credited with coining the term "modernity" (modernité) to designate the fleeting, ephemeral experience of life in an urban metropolis, and the responsibility art has to capture that experience. [from Wikipedia] Arthur Symons (1865-1945) was a British poet, critic, and translator. At 16, Symons moved to London, where he joined a vibrant literary community and participated, alongside poets like William Butler Yeats, in the notorious Rhymers Club, a group of poets and writers responsible for witty repartee anthologies such as The Book of the Rhymers Club (1892), in which Symons s poems appeared. His seminal guide The Symbolist Movement in Literature (1899) introduced English readers to the Symbolist movement, which Symons described as "an attempt to spiritualise literature." Symons also translated the work of French and Italian poets Paul Verlaine, Stéphane Mallarmé, and Gabriele D Annunzio into English, as well as publishing the critical studies An Introduction to the Study of Browning (1886) and The Romantic Movement in English Poetry (1909).
