Two editions of Fleurs du mal were published in Baudelaire's lifetime — one in 1857 and an expanded edition in 1861. "Scraps" and censored poems were collected in Les Épaves in 1866. After Baudelaire died the following year, a "definitive" edition appeared in 1868.
Bien loin d'ici
C'est ici la case sacrée
D'une main éventant ses seins,
C'est la chambre de Dorothée.
Du haut en bas, avec grand soin.
— Charles Baudelaire
Very Far From Here
This is the sacred dwelling
Listens to the fountains weeping,
It's the bedroom of Dorothy.
From head to foot, with greatest care
— William Aggeler, The Flowers of Evil (Fresno, CA: Academy Library Guild, 1954)
Far Away From Here
This is the room, the sacred nest
With one hand she fans her nipples
This room is Dorothy's. The play
From head to toe with greatest care
— Roy Campbell, Poems of Baudelaire (New York: Pantheon Books, 1952)
Ever So Far from Here
This is the house, the sacred box,
One elbow into the pillow pressed,
This is the chamber of Dorothy.
With odorous oils and rosemary,
— Edna St. Vincent Millay, Flowers of Evil (NY: Harper and Brothers, 1936)
