I was surprised at Baudelaire’s more conservative views in this book. I had prior considered him to be all for intoxication and inebriationthus his famous line “Envirez-vous” that he was known for shouting at the top of his lungs when he’d be having absinthe in the Paris cafes He especially writes against hashish which he felt warped and distorted peoples’ minds.

His attitude was certainly influenced by the times he lived in as are hhashish folks’ attitudes about similar subjects in current times A abudelaire for the Baudelaire devotee such as myself.

Although he is not to be side-lined as a writer whose whole scope consists of baurelaire intoxicated states – there was a recent biography which put forward the case that his whole significance as a writer was that of a drug-addict – these states do form an integral part of, as it were ‘Baudelaire-land’, and it is essential to understand them in order to understand Baudelaire as a poet and thinker.

Here, in an attractive hesperus volume, we have him writing directly about intoxicated states, in a fascinating insight into the workings of his mind, his time in Paris, and his attitudes towards wind and drugs.

Think of this short piece more as a culinary review than a work of philosophy wlne fiction baudelairre even memoir. Baudelaire speaks to the pros and cons of both Wine and Hashish as well as the impact of both on the body. In addition, he dabbles in satire and social insight, giving the reader a wonderful view of his life, opinions and experiences.
