About the Author

Charles Pierre Baudelaire (1821 - 1867) was a French poet who also produced notable work as an essayist, art critic and pioneering translator of Edgar Allan Poe. His most famous work, Les Fleurs du mal (The Flowers of Evil), expresses the changing nature of beauty in modern, industrializing Paris during the 19th century. Baudelaire's highly original style of prose-poetry influenced a whole generation of poets including Paul Verlaine, Arthur Rimbaud and Stephane Mallarme among many others. He is credited with coining the term modernity (modernite) to designate the fleeting, ephemeral experience of life in an urban metropolis and the responsibility art has to capture that experience. Cyril Meir Scott (1879 - 1970) was an English composer, writer and poet. In addition to his work as a composer and performer, Scott wrote poetry and prose. He was fascinated by the occult and health foods and described his beliefs as a blend of science, philosophy and religion. In a whole series of books and pamphlets, he urged the sick, even those with cancer, to trust to diet and alternative medicine and avoid trained medics and surgery.
