By Charles Baudelaire
Le ténébreux auteur des Fleurs du Mal, le plus lu des poètes français, fut d'abord le fils de l. a. presse. Jeune dandy, il y a fait ses premières armes ; jusqu'à l. a. fin de sa vie, il y a publié ses écrits en tous genres ; n'étant lié à aucun magazine, il a collaboré à tous, et exprimé sous les formes les plus variées ses convictions d'artiste et son farouche mépris des bien-pensants. Cette anthologie inédite lève le voile sur une half majeure et méconnue de son oeuvre. On y découvrira les multiples visages de ce polygraphe de génie : le joyeux mystificateur, auteur de chansons satiriques et d'ironiques leçons sur les femmes ou l'écriture ; l'acteur passionné du débat républicain, qui au coeur de l'exaltation révolutionnaire de 1848 fonda un magazine, Le Salut public ; mais aussi le significant théoricien français du rire, et l'un des plus grands evaluations artistiques et littéraires du XIXe siècle, aussi jubilatoire dans l'éloge que dans l'éreintage de ses contemporains. Ce recueil, qui brosse le double portrait de l'homme et de son siècle, donne enfin les models d'origine de célèbres poèmes, celles de leur première booklet dans los angeles presse - et témoigne ainsi d'une époque où, sur une même web page de magazine, un sonnet côtoyait un éditorial politique ou un fait divers.
