A fine version, best enjoyed as combining the towering trio of modern poetry. If anyone is concerned about translations then learn to speak french and read the original. It is artistic freedom to choose between the words "mucous" and "snot" but thats missing the forest for the trees. ( )

dumb cunt--should have checked the book before i bought it. i despise every single translated poem that is in english rhyming verse, as someone else's creativity went into it. poetry should be translated as literally as possible, and put some goddamn footnotes in it if it doesn't make sense. and that, my friends, is my review of this terrible book!

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0806501960, Paperback)

Here, for the first time, the work of three of Frances greatest poets has been published in a single volume: the sensual and passionate glow of Charles Baudelaire, the desperate intensity and challenge of Arthur Rimbaud, and the absinthe-tinted symbolist songs of Paul Verlaine.

To bring the essence of these three giants of modern poetry to the American public, Joseph M. Bernstein, a noted interpreter and translator of French literature, has selected the most representative of their writings and presented them along with a biographical and critical introduction.

"Not to know these three poets", he points out, "is to deprive oneself of a pleasure as rare as it is indispensable to any real understanding of the aims and direction of modern literature.

The volume includes Arthur Symons' unabridged translation of Flowers of Evil and the Prose Poems of Baudelaire; Louise Varese's translation of Rimbaud's A Season in Hell and Prose Poems from "Illuminations"; J. Norman Cameron's translation of the verse from the Illuminations; and a representative selection from Verlaine's verse translated by Gertrude Hall and Arthur Symons.
