Criticism about Charles Baudelaire

Sightseeing in Paris with Baudelaire and Breton
“In his article “Sightseeing in Paris with Baudelaire and Breton,” Benton Jay Komins discusses the tensions between Charles Baudelaire’s acts of modern appropriation and André Breton’s imaginative seizing of the démodé. While Breton roams the Parisian cityscape with the same aspect of creative gazing as Charles Baudelaire’s nineteenth-century dandy, the objects and experiences that he privileges are different from the dandy’s fashionable marvels.”
