    Spot on; it also always makes me think of lovecraft (surprise, surprise).

    Did you know that Baudelaire had an obsession with Poe, and translated quite a number of his short stories? I've never actually read any, but I always found that fascinating. I would love to see how he approached them. I've done quite a bit of translation, mostly focusing on Baudelaire, but I think it's an absolutely fascinating subject that no one really gives any thought to outside of, and even including much of, academia.

    Additionally, the HPL story "Hypnos" is purportedly based on Baudelaire, for whatever that's worth.

    He lives on in all of us.






    Those two things, I do not like them. Add to the incriminating list.



    It's all connected, isn't it ?

    I didn't know about the translations, it's intriguing. A quick googleing revealed this , might be an interesting read

    i poasted those here specifically for you, closeups and all. i had pics of the fellow from the house at the end of the street in santa agatha, he works now in centreville, wears a bright colored tie and outrageous shirt pattern but matches it all very well, i wish i could invite him to sf. also had pics of maison antoine, but neither of those would be as good with macro photo settings...

    ". . . Vincent Van Gogh, who carried his severed ear to the place that most offends polite society. It is admirable that in this way he both manifested a love that refused to take anything into account and in a way spat in the faces of all those who have accepted the elevated and official idea of life that is so well known. Perhaps the practice of sacrifice has disappeared from the earth because it was not able to be sufficiently charged with this element of hate and disgust, without which it appears in our eyes as servitude. The monstrous ear sent in its envelope, however, abruptly leaves the magic circle where the rites of liberation stupidly aborted. It leaves along with the tongue of Anaxarchus of Abdera, bit off and spat bloody in the face of the tyrant Nicocreon, and with the tongue of [Z]eno of Elea spat in the face of Demylos . . . both of these philosophers having been subjected to atrocious tortures, the first crushed while still alive in a mortar."

    The Cantigas de Santa Maria (CSM), composed at the Court of King Alfonso X of Castile in the second half of the 13th century, are a vast repertory of poetry in medieval Galician. The 420 compositions include 353 narratives of miracles of the Blessed Virgin Mary - one of the largest such collections - as well as a large number of devotional and liturgical poems, almost all set to music, and many illustrated by miniatures divided into smaller panels. The CSM are thus more than a body of literature or a miracle collection, they are a cultural project of great importance for medieval literature, music, and art, and for the history of patronage.

    Yeah...we can thank the French for Poe, Faulkner, and a few other American classsics that almost weren't -- IMO always the coolest thinkers and prose stylists, but ones who just didn't fit into the ideal -- almost official -- image they were trying to project with our canon, always moving away from the pre-Freudian weirdness of CB Brown and toward the drab religious stuff they've come to force upon every tenth grader. It's really kind of a shame.

    But...i'm not sure the French influence is neglected?

    --------
    Post-Xmas poasts will likely include: Chris Ware; Lucretius/David Berman death-meditation mash-ups. Prepare!

    No, but "translation" is largely ignored, even through undergraduate.
