Herein, the universe of Charles Baudelaire is explored in light of his relationship to the city of Paris. The circumstances of Baudelaire's life necessitated that he seek refuge from the realm of reality in a realm of imagination. The construction of this universe is examined through relevant historical discussion and analysis of several of Baudelaire's works. These works include selections from his Tableaux Parisiens as well as from his prose poetry.
