Baudelaire and the Great Beyond is a book that is difficult to categorise. Part poetic exploration, part rhetorical experiment, this book traverses the multi-faceted world which is Baudelaires universe by one constant refrain, the book constantly addresses Baudelaire through concise and well formulated poetic brevities, that makes salient aspects of our own world, for us to consider. There are no lengthy and scholarly diatribes here, on the nature of Baudelaires work, or his life, but rather a full poetic exploration of the space between the readers world, and that of Baudelaire. Come for the poetry, stay for the insight.
