Correspondences Analysis



Author: poem of Charles Baudelaire Type: poem Views: 15


Nature is a temple where the living pillars
Let go sometimes a blurred speech—
A Forest of symbols passes through a man's reach
And observes him with a familiar regard.

Like the distant echoes that mingle and confound
In a unity of darkness and quiet
Deep as the night, clear as daylight
The perfumes, the colors, the sounds correspond.

The perfume is as fresh as the flesh of an infant
Sweet as an oboe, green as a prairie
—And the others, corrupt, rich and triumphant

Enlightened by the things of infinity,
Like amber, musk, benzoin and incense
That sing, transporting the soul and sense.

.: :.

Baudelaire, in my interpretation of course, is reflecting on the fact that we are Nature, considering itself. We're often lost in our "modern world" or human world because we forget that we are just another part of Nature. If we stop to consider this fact, we can gain not only a better understanding of Nature but ourselves as well.

Baudelaire describes the connection between nature and man in this made-up \"world\" or \"paradise\". Through a mixture of things affecting the senses, he aims to connect to reality and can cope with the sadness of life.

baudelaire has used synesthetic techniques through out this poem to demonstrate the idea that every thing and anything ih this world corresponds to something or the other in human beings...

In his\" correspondences \" baudelaire as i can feel is in a moment of recollection where he is remembering old paris with its beauty ,just as the nature he is describing here ,i can see him raptured in the ideal world that is dominated now by evil .

In the first line, the word \"Nature\" has been interpreted to mean Mother Nature or the natural world around us. However, I submit a different perspective on this word which imbues the poem with much more profound meaning and also makes its \"puzzle pieces\" fit together more elegantly. I believe \"Nature\" means human nature. Read the poem again with this in mind, and you will see what I mean.

It is possible that Baudelaire simply emphasizes the profound advantages of nature, even when surrounded by a corrupt world and the tainted natural beauty, but I believe his intent is more personal. I believe that he aims to show that one should not be impacted by the morals of those around them, but rather to simply live by the morals that one has established. Live in a nature, a temple, that is free from the corruption of society, even if it may not be the most comfortable of living conditions as it is the essence of beauty and happiness.

.: :.

This poem seems to be, superficially, a wondrous exploration of nature. Baudelaire seems influenced by his travels in India, talking about the infinity of nature, and also uses motifs such as incense to convey the awesome infinity and oneness of nature.

.: :.

As there are are many English translations of the original poem, there are obviously different takes on it's meaning. I took it to mean that nature is a complex being and, as we try to understand its vast intricacies, it knows everything about us already. It's about the richness of the natural world we have to explore, and the fact that we are a small part that fits into it.
