I'm not a big fan of Baudelaire's verse poetry to begin with (his prose poetry is a different matter), and having read Flowers of Evil in French, I was not impressed with this translation. It contains most of the important poems from the original (The Albatross, Her Hair, An Invitation to Voyage, To a Malabar Girl, etc.), so this volume is a good introduction for people unfamiliar with Baudelaire. But someone who genuinely wants to study Baudelaire's poetry would be better off reading James McGowan's translation for Oxford World's Classics.
