Sample text

In Wordsworth, it is the over-cultivation of rational faculties, the temptation of 'vanity' which deforms and limits him. These 'too industrious times' have engender'd a 'dwarf Man', who lives a 'life of lies', 'locked in thepinfold of his own conceit', sadly estrang' d from' old Grandame Earth'13 cut off from his 'filial bond with nature'. But for Baudelaire nature teaches nothing, or next to nothing: appetites, and appetites which have been defined much better by Sade than Rousseau, since it is 'nature' which urges man 'a tuer son semblable, ale sequestrer, ale torturer'.

The best that is claimed for it is that it exalted a perverse side of men's imaginations: Mon ivresse en 1848. De queUe nature etait cette ivresse? Gout de la vengeance. Plaisir nature[ de la demolition. 66 NATURE AND POLITICS: THE FALL 31 1848 ne fut amusant que parceque chacun y faisait des utopies comme des chateaux en Espagne. 1848 ne fut charmant que par l'exces meme du ridicule. 67 Le canon tonne, les membres volent. . Des gemissements de victimes et des hurlements de sacrificateurs se font entendre ...

Capitalism or 'commerce' have become 'natural', in the sense that they constitute the fundamental bed-rock of the reality the poet must deal with. The 'natural' is the given condition, the norm, and this by 1850 is 'commerce'. The marrow in the bone has changed its nature. The world is upside down and its evil has become perverse: thus the terms 'nature' and' artifice' change places. 'En realite le Satanisme a gagne. Satan s'est fait ingenu. Le mal se connaissant etait moins affreux et plus pres de la guerison que la mal s'ignorant.
