Virtual Issue on Baudelaire

2017 marks the 150th anniversary of the death of Charles Baudelaire. A number of events are expected to take place in the course of the year. French Studies and its sister publication French Studies Bulletin have over many decades been central in promoting scholarship on Baudelaire, thus offering a record of shifting perceptions of his work and its importance. To commemorate this landmark, the editors of both publications have put together a virtual issue that makes previously published items on Baudelaire freely accessible. The eleven articles from French Studies and the forty shorter pieces from French Studies Bulletin given here span five decades of scholarship on Baudelaire, from the 1970s through to the present. Many of the articles in French Studies Bulletin come in the form of rejoinders or responses to previous items. French Studies has also published a very large number of reviews of works about Baudelaire over the years, and these can be found by entering a search for ‘Baudelaire’ on the journal’s web page. The editors hope that scholars will find the present virtual issue on Baudelaire a helpful and useful resource.
