“Fevers of Curiosity”: Charles Baudelaire and the Convalescent Flâneur

This month marks the 200th anniversary of Charles Baudelaire’s birth, the French poet famous for his descriptions of the flâneur: a man of the crowd, who thrived in the metropolis’ multitude. Following Baudelaire through 19th-century Paris, Matthew Beaumont discovers a parallel archetype — the convalescent hero of modernity — who emerges from the sickbed into city streets with a feverish curiosity.

Bad news - Andy is on a Fall binge.

@mjd Yes, he still lives in the kitchen but I let him scamper around the yard and have a play in the pool everyday. The desert life is suiting him very well.

@rek
Pino looks like a really lovely home. Simple, safe and (best of all) seaworthy.

@theru Good night. It was a lazy Sunday. I hope yours is too.
