Charles Pierre Baudelaire was born in Paris, France. He was a French poet who also produced notable work as an essayist, art critic, and pioneering translator of Edgar Allan Poe. His most famous work, Les Fleurs du mal, expresses the changing nature of beauty in modern, industrializing Paris during the 19th century. Baudelaire's highly original style of prose-poetry influenced a whole generation of poets including Paul Verlaine, Arthur Rimbaud and Stéphane Mallarmé among many others. His first published work was his art review "Salon of 1845," which attracted immediate attention for its boldness. In 1846, Baudelaire wrote his second Salon review, gaining additional credibility as an advocate and critic of Romanticism.
