O parfum charge de nonchaloir! Extase! Pour peupler ce soir l'alcove obscure Des souvenirs dormant dans cette chevelure, Je la veux agiter dans Fair comme un mouchoir! 5 La langoureuse Asie et la brulante Afrique, Tout un monde lointain, absent, presque defunt, Vit dans tes profondeurs, foret aromatique! Comme d'autres esprits voguent sur la musique, Le mien, 6 mon amour! nage sur ton parfum. 10 26 Charles Baudelaire J'irai la-bas ou l'arbre et l'homme, pleins de seve, Se pament longuement sous l'ardeur des climats; Fortes tresses, soyez la houle qui m'enleve!
Much of the tension of Baudelaire's work stems from opposite polarities, the endless conflict between degraded human nature and aspiration, between wilful self-possession and the pleasures of self-abandonment, between journeys to exotic dreamlands and plunges into the gouffre. But instead of falling passive victim to the contradictions of the human fate, the poet tries to transcend them through beauty, his aim being to 'extraire Tor du fumier du reel', to cultivate radiant flowers from the morass of evil - hence the title of his major volume of poetry, Les Fleurs du mal (1857), from which the poems in the present anthology - except Recueillement - are taken.
