Baudelaire on Poe

All you who have ardently sought to discover the laws that govern your being, who have aspired to the infinite, and whose repressed emotions have had to seek a terrible relief in the wine of debauchery, pray for him. Now his bodily being, purified, floats amid the beings whose existence he glimpsed. Pray for him who sees and knows, he will intercede for you.
