Artificial paradise; on hashish and wine as means of expanding individuality by Charles Baudelaire( Book )

18 editions published between 1966 and 2001 in French and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the time of its release in 1860, Charles Baudelaire's Artificial Paradises (Les Paradis Artificiels) met with immediate praise. One of the most important French symbolists, Baudelaire led a debauched, violent, and ultimately tragic life, dying an opium addict in 1867. This book, a response to Thomas De Quincey's Confessions of an Opium Eater, serves as a memoir of Baudelaire's last years. In this beautifully wrought portrait of the effects of wine, opium, and hashish on the mind, Baudelaire captures the dreamlike visions he experienced during his narcotic trances. These hallucinations, sometimes exquisite, sometimes disturbing, and the delusions of grandeur that often accompanied them, constitute the Paradis Artificiels, the gorgeous yet false worlds of ecstasy that eventually led to his ruin. Contrasting the effects of hashish and opium with those of wine, Baudelaire concludes that "wine exalts the will, hashish destroys it" and makes idlers of all those who use it

Bertram, or, The castle of St. Aldobrand by Charles Robert Maturin( Book )

12 editions published between 1821 and 1956 in French and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author of Melmoth the wanderer (1820) was an Anglican curate in Dublin struggling to maintain his family when Bertram, with the support of Scott and Byron, was produced at Drury Lane. It is a play of violent and excessive emotions. Kean played the title role, one of those villain-heroes descended from Schiller's Moor, and made the part his own. There were opportunities for elaborate stage effects, notably the storm in the first act. The audience was in the mood for Gothic melodrama, and the production was a resounding success, making for its author about 1,000. Coleridge (whose Remorse three years earlier earned 400) wrote a destructive critique of the play: though audiences of today's Theatre of Cruelty, used to drama dealing in emotional states rather than character and narrative, are unlikely to find his criticisms as devastating as Maturin did at the time. And the language, mocked by Coleridge, in its quieter passages has a steady power."--Jacket

Depuis près d'un siècle, Rimbaud constitue la référence majeure de la poésie contemporaine. Dans ses Délires, il évoque, narquois et vrai, comment la poésie s'est saisie de lui si jeune, et comment elle devint la loi du "dérèglement."

Les fleurs du mal : the complete text of The flowers of evil by Charles Baudelaire( Book )

6 editions published in 1957 in French and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The poetic masterpiece of the great nineteenth-century writer Charles Baudelaire, The Flowers of Evil is one of the most frequently read and studied works in the French language. In this compelling new translation of Baudelaire's most famous collection, Keith Waldrop recasts the poet's original French alexandrines and other poetic arrangements into versets, a form that hovers between poetry and prose. Maintaining Baudelaire's complex view of sound and structure, Waldrop's translation mirrors the intricacy of the original without attempting to replicate its inimitable verse. The result is a powerful new re-imagining, one that is, almost paradoxically, closer to Baudelaire's own poetry than any previous English translation. Including the six poems banned from the first edition, this Flowers of Evil preserves the complexity, eloquence, and dark humor of its author. Brought here to new life, it is hypnotic, frank, and forceful."--Publisher's website

Paradisi artificiali by Charles Baudelaire( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in Italian and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nell'esperienza creativa ed esistenziale di Baudelaire il consumo di sostanze stupefacenti ha rivestito un ruolo fondamentale, essenzialmente estetico: lontano da qualsiasi genere di moralismo, Baudelaire considera l'ebrezza artificiale indotta dalle droghe (di cui peraltro condanna l'abuso) una via privilegiata per fecondare il processo creativo. Ma nello stesso tempo vive come lacerante il dissidio tra il richiamo del peccato e l'aspirazione a salire verso l'altro, cercando dolorosamente di estrarre dal male la bellezza. Introduzione di Massimo Colesanti; Postfazione di Enrico Malizia. (ibs.it)
