Baudelaire in Russia

Book - 1996
Rate this:

The works of French poet Charles Baudelaire (1821-1867), a revolutionary figure in European literature and one of the most influential figures in the Symbolist movement, were translated into Russian earlier than any other language. Long before the decadents made him a champion of their cause, he had been appropriated in Russia by the revolutionary left.

nbsp;This book analyzes Baudelaire's reception in Russia from 1852 (the date of the first Russian translation of his work) to the end of the Soviet era in 1991. It discusses his impact on Marxists, Russian populists, decadents, Symbolists, acmeists, and on the modernist avant-garde within a general European context, and it argues that Baudelaire became a many-faceted mythical presence in Russian literature.
