One of the most influential volumes of poetry of the nineteenth century, Charles Baudelaire's The Flowers of Evil caused a sensation when it was originally published, even earning Baudelaire a fine when he was charged with "insulting public decency." With strong themes of debauchery, decadence, hedonism and sensuality, these intoxicating verses will etch themselves in your memory.
