Flowers Red and Black


Flowers Red and Black: Love Lyrics & Other Verses by Baudelaire, by Dean Kyte

In this stunning bouquet of love lyrics and other verses by Charles Baudelaire (1821-67), Dean Kyte brings le poète maudit into the 21st century with his original interpretations of some of Baudelaire’s most famous poems from Les Fleurs du mal.

Written in modern, contemporary English, these translations restore to Baudelaire his power to shock, demonstrating that these ‘fleurs maladives’ have not withered with age.

Baudelaire’s rich and compelling voice echoing across the centuries beautifully harmonizes with that of his modern interpreter in a duet which makes this collaboration between two poets of different languages a genuine collector’s item.
