Don't You Pay Them No Mind: Sartre on Baudelaire (3)



"Critics have often drawn attention to the mastery of this twenty-three year old writer. From that moment onward he did nothing but repeat himself...He wrote about the work of others, took up his old poems and revised them, became ecstatic over literary plans of which the oldest dated back to his youth. He translated the stories of Edgar Poe; but the creator created nothing more; he rehashed old work. A hundred removals and not a single voyage."
