Selected poems from Les fleurs du mal : a bilingual edition

Shapiro translates over seventy poems from the complete Flowers of Evil, the masterwork of the nineteenth-century dark poet, whose influence pervades subsequent Western poetry, and whose structured verse Shapiro smartly recreates in these formal renderings. --Kirkus Reviews. In these translations [Shapiro shows] a scholar's accuracy and a poet's formal exactitude. He captures that tension between lapidary form and romantic emotion which is Baudelaire's signature. --Richard Wilbur. Shapiro has found here in splendid translation what is most often lost. --John Hollander.
