1855

In 1855 came loafing and long free verse lines (Song of Myself) from Walt Whitman along with dandy-ism and prose poems (Paris Spleen) from Baudelaire. Why do I feel as if now and then have something in common? I'm not sure. I'll have to research it & get back to you. But I happen to be looking at those two books this week, so there you go.
