Baudelaire: A Collection of Critical Essays. Twentieth Century Views Series.
Peyre, Henri, Ed.
One of a series of works aimed at presenting contemporary critical opinion on major authors, this collection includes essays by Paul Valery, Henri Peyre, Fracois Mauriac, Charles du Bos, Etienne Gilson, P.M. Pasinetti, John Middleton Murry, Marcel Proust, Georges Poulet, Erich Auerbach, and Jean Prevost--all dealing with the biography and literary work of Baudelaire. Designed for use by both literary critics and secondary and college teachers of English, this work would also be of value to undergraduate and graduate students of literature. The essays are divided into three sections discussing the position of Baudelaire, the life of Baudelaire and its influence on his work, and the themes in Baudelaire. A chronology of important dates in Baudelaire's life, a brief set of biographical notes on the contributors to this collection, and a selected bibliography on Baudelaire and his work complete this volume.
