Charles Baudelaire, poète maudit, is the self-styled “Satanic man” whose collection THE FLOWERS OF EVIL (Les Fleurs du Mal) is marked by paeans to sexual degradation such as “The Litanies Of Satan” and “Metamorphosis Of The Vampire”. Baudelaire himself revelled in a life of filth, and revered as his poetic muse a diseased mulatto prostitute. THE FLOWERS OF EVIL is now presented in a brand new translation that vividly brings Baudelaire’s masterpiece to life for the new millennium. This special ebook edition also includes Baudelaire’s Satanic short story, “The Generous Gambler”, plus an introductory essay by Guillaume Apollinaire, published for the first time in English.
