    Here's part of the translation. I tried to stick to the text for a better comparison between the two versions.

    A carrion

    Do you remember the thing we saw, my soul
    This beautiful morning of Summer so sweet
    At the bend of a path a disgusting carrion
    lying on a bed of stones

    Its legs up, like a lustful woman,
    Hot and sweating the poisons,
    Was opening in a nonchalent and cynic way
    Its stomach full of exhalations.

    The sun was shining onto this rot,
    As in inder to cook it medium,
    And to give back a hundredfold to the great nature
    All what it had put together ;

    And the sky was looking down at the beautiful carcass
    Like a flower blooming.
    The stink was so strong that on the grass
    You felt you passed out.

    The flies were buzzing on this putrid stomach,
    From where were crawling out black herds
    Of grubs that were running out like a thick liquid
    Along these living rags.

    ...
    De gustibus et coloribus non disputandum.

    Well, what do you think about his style of writing?
    I think it is briliant .
    Nice link.

    brilliant? understatement

    Charles Baudelaire is one of the best French poets I know, and I can say that I do know quite a number! so saying he's brilliant is quite an understatement^^
    there are others like Arthur Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine who lived in 19° century...Victor Hugo, too, but it's not the same style, this one is rather about Romanticism (you can find a definition of Romanticism in literature on the internet if you don't have any idea of what it is)...
    Pierre de Ronsard is from 16° century, wrote "les Amours" which i think you know is about his love^^

    hum...there's also a girl (yes, why should all the poets be men??) named Louise Lab
    A friend in need's a friend indeed !
