Baudelaire as Romantic and Classic

Baudelaire was at the height of his glory when his Les Fluras Du Mal (Flowers of the Evil) and other works published. His works are most illustrious and bulkiest. His works represent the poet’s philosophy but harmonies are to subtle and the design too pure, his language too elegant, to full of delicate light and shade. Although France poets are generally little known and appreciated abroad, Baudelaire passed beyond our front-tear. His poetry is read throughout the world. It takes its place as the characteristic poetry of modernity. It encourages Baudelaire was born sensual exactly. He was a genius of analysis and an inventor of the unknown of the newest. His watch is most shed consensus and most imagination, of mysterious and calculation, psychologist of the exceptional. He studied utilize all the resources of arts. His poems bear a demon of Lucidity. In short, he is late constraint by the straight of his soul and by his environment.

He combined romanticism and classicism in a different way. Les Fluras Du Mal contains neither historical nor legendary poems: nothing based upon a narrative. There are no flights into philosophy. Politics, here, make no appearance. Description are rare and always patronage. But all his poetry is charm music, powerful abstract sensuality. In majority of his poems, there is a combination of flesh and spirit, a mixture solemnity and warm and bitterness, of eternity and intimacy. There is, however, a most rare alliance of will with harmony. It distinguishes his poetry clearly of romantic verse and also clearly from contemporary verse.

He is romantic and classic in his entire predicament each other corrected and re-enforced each other. Baudelaire is very often taken as the first counter romantic. He believed the romanticism was infernal of a celestial grace. It had freed literature from the shackles bandage of old aesthetes from social ethical conformity. Baudelaire devoted against contemporary use of poetry. He has enriched and discovered profound meaning of symbols. He is a romantic first because of his life, or rather because of the way in which he leads his poetry allowed himself to be devoured by own creation. In deed, he is profound romantic also through the roles which he grants, in the world of art, to sensibility and sensuality.

Baudelaire is romantic in two more senses: in his passionate and advocacy as well as through the roles which he grants to strangeness as a component of beauty. He is a rebel because he expended and exulted the nature of men and was to acquainting all vices and all excesses to make hover on the verse and many of abbess and the cherries death itself in order to live more courageously than any other poet of his time. All the poems are taken from the side of life and from the death.

Flowers of the Evil of Baudelaire are in deed sickly flowers. In these, there is a source of delight, a moving vision of the world and of oneself, the evil pleasure of challenging a prohibition and of disobeying someone. He has sinned and test for sinning can easily perceive when one read his poetry. His poems, like vessels, chaining into the sea, intoxicate in the restlessness of wondering hearts. He had in him: “Anywhere out of the World”. It is a crime not very consign christen but of a sinner who cannot be resigned to sin. Baudelaire is never allaying for God in Christianity. He wanted to study life in the wise sense of his intellectual in modern like Dr. Faustus. Finally, he cried.

“Oh lord! Take pity half of the man once to love ........but could not overcome his passion for the unknown”. And he prayed like the child of the Church.
