Baudelaire: Juego de triunfos by Mario Campana

By Mario Campana

Los angeles biografía de Charles Baudelaire, el poeta maldito por excelencia.

La leyenda y el mito se han apoderado del autor de Las flores del mal. Convertido en uno de los iconos de los angeles cultura moderna, en el poeta maldito por excelencia, los angeles figura de Charles Baudelaire ha sufrido todo tipo de manipulaciones, que han pretendido convertirlo en dandi frívolo o en mártir y héroe inmaculado, en audaz parricida o en contumaz consumidor de drogas, simplificando así los angeles verdadera magnitud de su figura, su vida y su trabajo.

Ateniéndose a l. a. ingente documentación existente y sorteando los peligros de los angeles hagiografía y el anecdotario, esta biografía, escrita con rigor y fluidez, es l. a. obra de un poeta que prefiere ceñirse a los hechos y a l. a. complejidad de los angeles vida del que fuera el fundador de los angeles poesía contemporánea, reconociéndolo en sus grandezas y miserias, su arrojo, sus contradicciones y sus dobleces hasta llenar un inexplicable vacío en l. a. bibliografía en lengua castellana.

Con un profundo conocimiento de l. a. sociedad francesa y los avances del mercantilismo en l. a. época, Mario Campaña sitúa a Baudelaire en su contexto social y político, al tiempo que destaca cómo influyó esta convulsa situación en su vida y obra. Siendo revolucionario en 1848, el poeta terminó repudiando toda l. a. civilización occidental y proponiendo fórmulas políticas que lo situaron en el espectro más conservador de su época.

«No hay momento pertinente de l. a. vida de Baudelaire del que esta biografía no se ocupe sin una interpretación muy ajustada, repartiendo juego sin recabar méritos propios. De ahí su valor.»

Example text

The students had to work on their own in little groups. They had to pass examinations before a State Jury or at another university. Jacques was helping a friend from the final year to prepare for the entrance examination at the École Polytechnique. 6 Charles Nootens and Petit Jacques Tits entered the fifth year at the Athénée d’Uccle in September 1944 at the age of 14. School started with a delay of several days. Indeed, since May 1940, Belgium had been occupied by the German troops and ruled by the Nazi regime.

But it was also of crucial importance that Norwegian mathematicians took real interest in the project in the spring of 2001. The small group of mathematicians at the University of Oslo was instrumental in collecting the decisive support from the highest level in European and world mathematics via the EMS and IMU. Without this strong international academic support, it is not likely that the plans would have seen a political breakthrough in Norway. For the international mathematical community in large, and especially for EMS and IMU, the Abel Prize was an opportunity finally—after one hundred years— to establish “the missing Nobel in mathematics”.

IMU did not want a new prize to compete with the Fields Medal, and Laudal assured Palis that the planned Abel Prize would not be comparable to any of the existing IMU prizes. As we saw in the introduction, the prize was therefore also presented as “the ‘missing Nobel Prize’ in mathematics”. This argument was very well received by IMU, which had for one hundred years been longing for a scientific prize comparable to the Nobel Prizes. This desire is evident in the strength of the stories retold in the international mathematical community, about how Nobel allegedly decided not to establish a prize in mathematics because of quarrels over a woman with the Swedish mathematician Gösta MittagLeffler.
