Review In many ways, Charles Baudelaire is an adolescent bombast -- he seems to enjoy opium and satanism just a little too much, and his prose-poetry is weighed down by Victorian abstraction (not to mention how much must be lost in translation; Baudelaire's is not the accommodating French of Le Petit Prince). That said, Baudelaire commits to a worthy experiment: to write about his daily life in pensive short prose, bombarding his readers with daring observations, anecdotes and fables. It reminds me a lot of the Arcades Project of Walter Benjamin, the way it devours the sights of Paris and defecates prescient descriptions (I describe it so graphically because, in the cases of both Baudelaire and Benjamin, the writing seems unavoidable, unrestrained, un-self-conscious -- as natural and necessary as gastronomic excretion). About the half of these vignettes are gems in the rough, and the others are dustier stones. Curiously, I'd recommend Paris Spleen to Richard Brautigan fans -- they share a lot of style and sentiments.

Description

I totally agree with you Peter. Walter Benjamin is one of my favorite writers as well. It seems like they are re-issuing a lot of Benjamin's work lately. Including a childhood memoir and another collection of writings on Baudelaire. Not sure if it's the same as the old edition or same translation. I have both copies, but haven't had the chance to compare the two. I read one many years ago (got it in London) and the new one I read as well - but my memory is hazy if it's the same pieces or translations....
