KIRKUS REVIEW

Best known for his translations of La Fontaine and Feydeau, Shapiro translates over 70 poems from the complete Flowers of Evil, the masterwork of the 19th-century dark poet, whose influence pervades subsequent Western poetry, and whose structured verse Shapiro (unlike so many previous translators of Baudelaire) smartly re-creates in these formal renderings, complete with the original French on the opposite page.
