Nouvelles Histoires Extraordinaires, short stories by Poe translated to French by the poet Baudelaire (in the original French) : Short stories translated to French by renowned Poet
Purportedly, Poe's enormous reputation in Europe is due mainly to Baudelaire's translation, which some consider better than the original. Charles Pierre Baudelaire (9 April 1821 - 31 August 1867) was a nineteenth century French poet, critic and translator. A controversial figure in his lifetime, Baudelaire's name has become a byword for literary and artistic decadence. At the same time his works, in particular his book of poetry Les Fleurs du mal (The Flowers of Evil), have been acknowledged as classics of French literature."
