1842. Charles Baudelaire meets Jeanne Duval, an actress born in Haïti who struggles to become famous, while the French poet is not renowned yet and has just started writing his most famous book, The Flowers of Evil (Les Fleurs du mal).
This passionate relationship will inspire him some of his most beautiful poems. Yet, Jeanne is despised: she has a black skin and her poor origins are unsettling. However, both remain deeply in love. In a passionate way: they are jealous, they get mad, they fight and cheat on each other.
In this biography, Brigitte Kernel recounts a love story as intense as stormy, based on Baudelaire’s letters. A consuming passion that will burn the poet until his death in 1867, aged 46.
