    One thought on “Baudelaire”

    1. Yo, Jean-Paul, what's the friggin deal mon amie? This shabby 192 page critical study of famed Enfant Terrible and France's favorite malcontent, Charles Baudelaire is far too accessible! I was able to understand almost 90% of it and it only took me a few days to read. What gives? I make fun of Sartre far too much for someone who spells pychiatry wrong 70% of the time, but I've also read (and finished) 3 of his books, including his 500 page opus on Jean Genet "Saint Genet" --which I later found ou [...]

    2. As expected, Sartre makes a lot of great points on life, personality, etc. A must-read for self-indulgent, reckless and nutcase poets in need of some whipping (Sartre provides it) or medicine (Baudelaire's example).However, Sartre overlooks two core things:1) If Baudelaire hadn't been so masochist, childish and morbid, he wouldn't have been the genius he was. Learning to be a poet is to unlearn how to live. (Houellebecq)The reason why so many people write and so little is worthy is simple: in or [...]

    3. A beautiful, elusively sympathetic, yet brutally honest look at this poet and his jagged life. Very few authors have ever deserved to write a critical essay on Baudelaire--this is the one.

    4. Sartre, Baudelaire'in varlık ve varoluş arasında, geçmişin şimdiki anda kendisini ortaya koyduğu, gösterişçi bir hiçlik mertebesini alınyazısı olarak seçtiği, hayatının ve şiirlerinin felsefik ve ruhbilimsel çözümlemesini yapmış. Hayatını yargılayan kişileri dışarıda bulamadığı zaman hayalinde oluşturan Baudelaire, İyilik'in kurallarına şiddetle karşı çıktığı ölçüde kabul eden, kendini yok sayarken olumlayan bir hayatı yaşamış. Büyük ozan Bau [...]

    5. در کنار فصل بودلر در تجربه مدرنیته اثر مارشال برمن و همچنین مقالات عمیق و راهگشای والتر بنیامین، این کتاب هستی شناسانه ی ژان پل سارتر ما را از دیدگاه جدیدی با بودلر رازآمیز و عجیب آشنا می کنددر این کتاب سارتر سعی دارد به جهان بودلر از راه اشعار و نامه ها دیگر نوشته هایش ، وارد ش [...]

    6. Baudelaire was much more a poet than a man. He was at once nasty, arrogant, racist and talented with the manipulation of the human spirit. I see much less value in Baudelaire than did Sartre, who devoted over two hundred pages of factual anecdotes and conjecture (an homage to Baudelaire?) to the unrealised definition of the poet's character. Indeed, were I to meet Baudelaire in a salon of his time, or a coffee shop of my time, my opinion would remain unchanged, and vastly different from Sartre's [...]

    7. رفتار اصلى بودلر رفتار مردى است خم شده . خم شده بر خويش همچون نارسيس . نزد او هيچ آگاهى بى واسطه‌اى نيست كه با نگاهى تيز سوراخ نشده باشد.براى ما كافى است كه خانه يا درخت را ببينيم ، مجذوب تماشاى آنها خود را فراموش مى‌كنيم . بودلر مردى است كه هرگز خود را فراموش نمى‌كند.او خود را م [...]

    8. In his essay, Sartre dissects the personality of Baudelaire from a position of psychoanalysis. The one who is going to read this work should be well aware of the poet's biography beforehand, for the author presents only some of essential biographical facts - that is, it's not a biography in its pure form. As a review, it lacks for quotations from Baudelaire's poems and prose. First of all, Sartre shows his keen interest in the Baudelaire inward life.

    9. "He held himself back, put on the brake, judged himself; he was his own witness and own executioner, the knife which turns in the wound and the chisel which fashions the marble."Sartre dissects Baudelaire in his own way, which of course means looking at the character of Baudelaire as an existential object. This book is a quick read, and offers some novel insights into Baudelaire, but I am certain there are better books on the subject. This book is, however, quite clear and accessible.

    10. A critical study based largely on unverifiable speculation about the mental state of its subject. There is surprisingly little of Baudelaire's poetry or prose cited here. Sartre treats the poet's life (or rather, Sartre's conception of his life) as a case study illustrating the existential principles of freedom, anxiety and radical subjectivity.

    11. J'adore Charles Baudelaire et j'étais ravie de trouver ce livre dans une bibliothèque, afin de mieux découvrir cet auteur. J'ai été un peu déçue après cette lecture, je ne pense pas en avoir retiré grand chose Cette déception est peut-être due à une attention défaillante lorsque je le lisais Je ne sais pas, mais je n'en ressors pas aussi enrichie que je l'aurai souhaité.

    12. از بیوگرافی هایی که سارتر در مورد نویسندگان و شاعران گذشته نوشته، که در عین حال سنگین و پیچیده است.در مورد ژان پل سارتر، مطلبی جداگانه نوشته ام؛ /author_blog_

    13. This is a really fast read, and an interesting take on Baudelaire. Sartre applies his ideas of freedom to the poet, but also attempts a psychoanalytic read of him, which has certainly been done before, but not quite like this.

    14. I bought this somewhere along the way & found it in a box. Sartre was a literary essayist, as well as a playwright, novelist and philosopher. Genius has not bounds! His book on Flaubert is a definitive work. His existential touch goes right through the subject. Good essay!

    15. A complicated but interesting psychological analysis of Baudelaire's poetry and his lifelong struggle with things such as Good, Evil and everything in between

    16. کشتی به دام افتاده در قطبهم چون در تله ای از بلوردر جست و جوی تنگه ی تقدیراستکه او را به این محبس کشاند

    17. Jean - Paul Sartre was a philosopher, not a biographist. So this biography isn't perfect, but it's just OK.

    18. A great intro to Sartre's thinking, an honest and inventive look at Baudelaire through the Existentialist lens.
