Baudelaire, Charles (18211867)

Baudelaire, Charles, French poet of the romantic school, born in Paris; distinguished among his contemporaries for his originality, and his influence on others of his class; was a charming writer of prose as well as verse, as his “Petits Poèmes” in prose bear witness. Victor Hugo once congratulated him on having “created a new shudder”; and as has been said, “this side of his genius attracted most popular attention, which, however, is but one side, and not really the most remarkable, of a singular combination of morbid but delicate analysis and reproduction of the remotest phases and moods of human thought and passion” (18211867).
