Reviews

`this is an impressive book, essential reading for all those interested in Baudelaire and important for an understanding of the politics and literature of mid-19th century France.' Modern and Contemporary France 1994 `The political background provided by Burton is a useful contribution to Baudelaire studies.' Times Literary Supplement `this is an extremely stimulating book' Times Higher Education Supplement 'Richard Burton;s fine new book on Baudelaire offers us intellectual history of a high order, based upon close textual reading, careful synthesis of the most recent political and literary scholarship and serious and unusual attention to milieu. Burton marshals an impressive array of contemporary political and cultural resources ... the book must be read in future for any scholar or graduate student seeking a mature and careful understanding of the political consciousness of French literary life in the nineteenth century.' Janine Hartman, University of Cincinnati, Nineteenth-Century French Studies, Volume 21, Numbers 3 & 4, Spring-Summer 1993
