Flowers of Bad; A false translation of Charles Baudelaire's Les Fleurs du Mal

Unbelievable Alligator, 2007. First Edition. Paperback. This is Cameron's first collection of conceptual poetry, a "false translation" of Baudelaire, meaning a translation by someone who neither speaks nor understands French but instead interprets "the poem's sound, the shape or look of the words in the poem, or some other aspect that contributes to the translated poem." Yes, the author does seem to have a sense of humor about this undertaking. This copy is inscribed by the author to Laura Goldstein, a renowned Chicago avant garde poet. Fine. Item #323
ISBN: 9781933254265
