Stéphane GuéganBaudelaire, l'art contre l'ennui
Two centuries after his birth, Baudelaire enjoys a sovereign position. In poetry: it is the revolution of the Flowers of Evil, that of a language more physical and receptive to the present. In art: it is the imperative of modernity, which requires that one paints modern life in its movement and its deep truth. No one has better grasped Delacroix, Ingres and Daumier, electrified Courbet and Manet, dissociated good and bad photography, promoted the equal legitimacy of cultures or the divorce between art and common morality. This book, without separating the poet from the journalist, re-examines the Baudelaire deflagration and why it still acts.
