Example text

According to one a reliable source, it was Poe’s “fervent desire to found a new literary magazine that would appeal to the elevated tastes” [emphasis mine] (Person 132– 133). 9 He criticizes the lack of individuality on the part of members of literary society by remarking sarcastically: Edgar Allan Poe and Charles Baudelaire: The Artist as the Elite Victim 29 “[…] on all literary topics there is in society a seemingly wonderful coincidence of opinion”. 10 Baudelaire went even further. Frequenting the greatest artists, musicians and literati of his times, such as Manet, Courbet, Delacroix, Gautier and Wagner, his ego must have thrived.

Galván, Fernando. “Plagiarism in Poe: Revisiting the Poe-Dickens Relationship”. The Edgar Allan Poe Review 2009 (forthcoming). ——. “Poe frente a Dickens, o los entresijos de un conflicto personal”.

Henceforth, he became Poe’s greatest admirer and made use of every opportunity to call people’s attention to his American counterpart. 2 This intense preoccupation explains why Baudelaire devoted sixteen years of his life to translating Poe’s writing, particularly his prose. Of the poems, he translated only “The Raven”, “The Conqueror Worm” and “The Haunted Palace”. Baudelaire analyzed Poe as he would himself, claiming that Poe’s problems with substance abuse were a deliberate means of self-destruction, a long-term suicide attempt to escape the harsh realities of an evil outside world (Preußner 52).
