Charles Baudelaire (1821-67), a preeminent nineteenth-century French poet, translator, and critic, published one collection of poems during his lifetime, the highly controversial and immensely influential Les Fleurs du mal (1857); a posthumous compilation, Le Spleen de Paris (1869), explores the form of prose poetry. Baudelaire also translated several works of Edgar Allan Poe into French, and these translations are widely read to this day.
