Sadly, I do not see any of my favorite versions of my favorite poet posted here, from: 'The Poems and Prose Poems of Charles Baudelaire. Ed. James Huneker. New York: Brentano's,1919' I would encourage Baudelaire fans to read those particular translations as well! And I hope this is remedied here in the future.
