Walter Benjamin on Charles Baudelaire

"The special beauty of so many of the openings of Baudelaire's poems lies in this: a rising up from the abyss." -Walter Benjaimin from the essay "Central Park" in Selected Writings, Vol. 4 1938-1940

Yes! Here's to rising up from the abyss!
That's what I'm all about today.

Thanks for stopping by.
