Example text

Que n’ai-je mis bas tout un noeud de vipères, Plutôt que de nourrir cette dérision! Maudite soit la nuit aux plaisirs éphémères Où mon ventre a conçu mon expiation! (Baudelaire, OC1 7–8). Before the artist even has a chance to express himself, his mother wants to cast her child away, calling it her “expiation”, or vile secretion. She would Edgar Allan Poe and Charles Baudelaire: The Artist as the Elite Victim 31 rather take care of a whole nest of snakes, “tout un noeud de vipères” than nurse this mockery, “cette dérision” (Baudelaire, OC1 7–8).

In Poe’s story the first 32 Sonya Isaak person narrator-protagonist bears witness to the outsider’s strange behavior, but makes no attempt to communicate with him. This allows the reader to perceive one anti-hero lost in the midst of the crowd mirrored by another. We cannot help but ask ourselves who the “Man of the Crowd” is. The title could refer both to the narrator as well as to the man the narrator follows. This deliberate ambiguity ingeniously underlines the theme of alienation. Perhaps Baudelaire and Poe too, were men of the crowd, one mirroring the other, afraid of solitude, but always aware of their revolt against society.
