Baudelaire and the Poetics of CraftBaudelaire and the Poetics of Craft
Publication Date: April 14, 2011| ISBN-10: 0521158958 | ISBN-13: 978-0521158954| Edition: Reissue This book is a study of how Baudelaire shapes the raw material of the French language within the formal framework of French versification.

This is particularly noticeable in Baudelaire's urban poetry, in which traditional expectations of poetic form clash with the pulsating freshness, difference and ener...
