InLa Folie Baudelaire, Roberto Calasso--one of the most original and acclaimed writers on literature, art, culture, and mythology--turns his attention to the poets and writers of Paris in the nineteenth century who created what was later called "the Modern." His protagonist is Charles Baudelaire: poet of "nerves," art love, pioneering critic, man about Paris. Calasso ranges through Baudelaire's life and work, focusing on two painters--Ingres and Delacroix--about whom Baudelaire wrote acutely, and then turnsto Degas and Manet, who followed in the tracks Baudelaire laid down in his great essayThe Painter of Modern Life. In Calasso's lavishly illustrated mosaic of stories, insights, close readings of poems, and commentaries on paintings, Baudelaire's Paris comes brilliantly to life. In the eighteenth century, aFolie was a garden pavilion set aside for people of leisure, a place of delight and fantasy. Following Baudelaire, Calasso has created a brilliant and dramatic "Folie Baudelaire"--a place where the reader can encounter the poet himself, his peers, his city, and his extraordinary likes and dislikes, finally discovering that that places is situated in the middle of the land of "absolute literature."… (mer)

No one had crossed that city so wisely and congenially, like some saturnine guardian; no one had made it breathe in his prose and poetry as Baudelaire had done.

Calasso has penned a book where the fantastic and the bizarre in all their connotations dovetail. It is vison from a fever, a strange state of affairs and the lodestar is one Charles Baudelaire. The book is a gallery or to borrow Baudelaire's famed dream, it is a brothel-museum where one can trod barefoot and indecently exposed and marvel at the amor fati, the crazed and brazen, where the chronicles of Manet or Ingres can astonish. Where humility leaves us weeping.

The sections on Baudelaire and Rimbaud were superior, a crackling mastery of modernity is on display. Calasso weaves and constructs, he teases us with a theory of allegory and flashes an homage to Baudelaire's embrace of definition. The sections on painting are the sinew of the book, but were less effective to my simple soul.

Calasso is always looking both forward and back, his erudition is breathtaking as is the pellucid prose. ( )
