Une charogne, Charles Baudelaire

“Many of those to whom Baudelaire finds an echo, see, in his passionate longing ‘pour trouver du nouveau’, their own aspiration towards something beyond themselves and the pitiable quest for material comfort and happiness, something in which to lose themselves, a return to a spiritual philosophy of life, to a difficult religion which will make demands on man for effort and sacrifice and will not play him false.” Enid Starkie.
