    Abstract

    Jean-Louis Cornille's study is that rare exception: a critical work in French on Baudelaire's prose poems that does not regard them as the poor cousin of Les Fleurs du mal. He counters this generally dismissive francophone attitude towards Le Spleen de Paris, as well as the opposite prejudice held by many anglophone Baudelaireans who lavish praise on its quintessentially modern ‘poétique de la fragmentation’, by demonstrating, through meticulous close readings, that it possesses an internal logic and structural unity all of its own that rivals the much-vaunted ‘architecture secrète’ of the verse poems. Two main structuring principles are invoked.
