L. a. biografía de Charles Baudelaire, el poeta maldito por excelencia.
La leyenda y el mito se han apoderado del autor de Las flores del mal. Convertido en uno de los iconos de l. a. cultura moderna, en el poeta maldito por excelencia, los angeles figura de Charles Baudelaire ha sufrido todo tipo de manipulaciones, que han pretendido convertirlo en dandi frívolo o en mártir y héroe inmaculado, en audaz parricida o en contumaz consumidor de drogas, simplificando así los angeles verdadera magnitud de su figura, su vida y su trabajo.
Ateniéndose a los angeles ingente documentación existente y sorteando los peligros de los angeles hagiografía y el anecdotario, esta biografía, escrita con rigor y fluidez, es l. a. obra de un poeta que prefiere ceñirse a los hechos y a l. a. complejidad de los angeles vida del que fuera el fundador de los angeles poesía contemporánea, reconociéndolo en sus grandezas y miserias, su arrojo, sus contradicciones y sus dobleces hasta llenar un inexplicable vacío en l. a. bibliografía en lengua castellana.
Con un profundo conocimiento de los angeles sociedad francesa y los avances del mercantilismo en l. a. época, Mario Campaña sitúa a Baudelaire en su contexto social y político, al tiempo que destaca cómo influyó esta convulsa situación en su vida y obra. Siendo revolucionario en 1848, el poeta terminó repudiando toda l. a. civilización occidental y proponiendo fórmulas políticas que lo situaron en el espectro más conservador de su época.
«No hay momento pertinente de l. a. vida de Baudelaire del que esta biografía no se ocupe sin una interpretación muy ajustada, repartiendo juego sin recabar méritos propios. De ahí su valor.»
