About the Book
Written in modern, contemporary English, these translations restore to Baudelaire his power to shock, demonstrating that these ‘fleurs maladives’ have not withered with age.
Baudelaire’s rich and compelling voice echoing across the centuries beautifully harmonizes with that of his modern interpreter in a duet which makes this collaboration between two poets of different languages a genuine collector’s item.
