Charles Baudelaire (1821-1867). Parisian writer. He spent his short life anguished through an existence of pleasures, followed by a last time miserable and sordid, exhausted by vice, drugs and alcohol. The Flowers of the Evil of Him, published in 1857, provoked the process of the author of him, by the profane and blasphemous language of him. The work being kidnapped and Baudelaire fined, it was released four years later. All sorts of dreamlike and horny visions stand out in her, mixing romanticism, realism and symbolism and the transcendental question "who are we, where do we come from and where are we going?" he solves it by annihilation.
