Remembering Paris in Text and Film (Book)
For Baudelaire, Paris streets conjured visions of the past even as he contemplated the present. This book investigates this and other cases of double vision, tracing back into antiquity and following Baudelaire forwards as his poetry is translated, received and referenced through text and film to the twentieth century and beyond. 3 b/w illus.
