“Evening Harmony”, analysis of the poem by Charles Baudelaire

Baudelaire is one of the most popular French poets, poems, which are translated into Russian often with the loss of some meaning and image. “Evening Harmony” is a work of the French poet, which did not leave his fans indifferent. An analysis of Baudelaire’s creations is not easy, since there are several Russian-language translations that are completely different from each other, so it’s not easy to understand the true plot and meaning of the poem.

The theme of the work “Evening Harmony” is the feelings that a lyrical hero experiences on the eve of an important event. The poet equates these feelings with ringing, violin sounds and sighs.

Creating “Evening Harmony”, the author sought to convey to the reader the agony of the lyrical hero, creating a unique storyline of the poem. The martyr’s thoughts are accompanied by the sounds of a violin and the sound of bells, giving the poem a certain drama.

The writer in four columns of rhymed lines was able to convey to the reader dramatic effects, shaded by an unobtrusive light absurdity. Baudelaire used Christian vocabulary to write this poem, which favorably affected the popularity of his creation, especially among believers.

As for the lyrical hero, the reader reveals the inner world of the martyr, who, on the threshold of the inevitable, torments his soul, unable to change anything. With the help of archaisms, the author conveys the torment of the hero in detail and clearly for understanding and spiritual people.
