"BAUDELAIRE REVOICED . . .
Howard's achievement is such that we can be confident that his Flowers of Evil will long stand as definitive, a superb guide to France's greatest poet." -- The Nation
"Readers of English do not have to take Baudelaire on faith any longer. For the first time he is present among us, vivid and surprisingly intact, in these fine translations." -- The New York Times Book Review
"A deft and patient new translation of Les Fleurs Du Mal. . . . Howard, it seems to me, has done what he has set out to, has given us, in English and in verse, a Baudelaire both immediately recognizable and impressively varied. . . . It is a considerable achievement." -- The New York Review of Books
"Not until now has there been an edition of the entire work which successfully captures the distinctive voice of Baudelaire. . . . The level of success among 151 lyrics is so high as to guarantee that Richard Howard's will be the definitive translation in the foreseeable future." -- The Boston Globe
"Richard Howard, generally esteemed as the finest American translator from the French of the postwar era, offers a new version of this masterpiece. . . . It is indubitably the English edition to acquire." -- The Washington Post Book World
"[An] intelligent responsiveness to the poem's meaning informs almost every translation in this volume." -- The New RepublicFrom the Inside Flap:
Modern poetry begins with Charles Baudelaire (1821-67), who employed his unequalled technical mastery to create the shadowy, desperately dramatic urban landscape -- populated by the addicted and the damned -- which so compellingly mirrors our modern condition. Deeply though darkly spiritual, titanic in the changes he wrought, Baudelaire looms over all the work, great and small, created in his wake.
