The Charles Baudelaire Collection

Charles Baudelaire (April 9, 1821 – August 31, 1867) is one of the most famous French poets and Decadent authors, but before the 20th century, his work was generally considered controversial, difficult, if not subversive. He is famous for his criticism of "usefulness" in poetry, and thought that poetry is only acceptable in a form of pure, superior beauty, never to teach something or to convey a political message (like Victor Hugo or La Fontaine did).

He is now considered as one of the most important precursors of 20th century literature. His poetry and, to a lesser extent, his literary criticism, have had a very deep influence on the following generations of writers, both in France and abroad, which can still be felt today.
