Charles Baudelaire (1821-1867) is purportedly “one of the greatest French poets of the 19th century, called ‘the father of modern criticism,'” and apparently I did not know this.

That quote is a central component to a couple of writings I have coming up.
The very next one has a relevant relationship to the theme.
