Selected Poems From Baudelaire's
Fleurs du Mal
Helen Palma has accepted the challenge...sometimes declined: to turn Baudelaire into rhymed, metered lines that approximate the French forms. She has accomplished this with spirit and admirable fidelity.
---Catherine Savage Brosman, Professor Emeritus of French, Tulane University
Palma has collaborated with Baudelaire's muse to create English poems that masterfully blend those hallmarks of post-romantic symbolist poetry...Baudelaire is well-served by Helen Palma's English versions...she once again bears witness to the axiom that to translate poetry successfully one must not only be a good translator, but a good poet..
---Eric Sellin, Poet and translator
Superbly surpassing such illustrious predecessors as Roy Campbell, Robert Lowell, Arthur Symons, and Richard Wilbur...Palma reenacts the eloquent splendor of his splenetic elan.
---J.B. Sisson, poet and translator
