Pissed off Paris a.k.a Paris Spleen. Little poems in prose by Charles Baudelaire, translated by David Cauchi.
Appealing to lovers of art and literary fiends alike, Pissed off Paris is New Zealand artist David Cauchi’s translation of Baudelaire’s bitter, yet loving, take on his modern Paris.
Accompanied by a suite of 70 drawings by Cauchi. Published posthumously, Pissed off Paris is Baudelaire’s final word on the subjects that obsessed him during his short life: the city, the crowd, the plight of the poor, the role of the poet, sex, drugs. Baudelaire was the first truly modern poet, and in these prose poems he found a modern form for his modern subject matter.
New Zealand artist David Cauchi’s translation vividly captures Baudelaire’s lyricism and irony. It conveys the many tones of the poems’ surprisingly wide range of genres — from traditional love poems and social commentary to science fiction, horror, and comedy. Cauchi has produced a suite of 70 drawings to complement the poems. Introduction by Chris Tse.
