Wallace Stevens. Anecdote of the Jar. I placed a jar in Tennessee,/ And round it was, upon a hill./ It made the slovenly wilderness/ Surround that hill.// The wilderness rose up to it,/ And sprawled around, no longer wild./ The jar was round upon the ground/ And tall and of a port in air.// It took dominion everywhere./The jar was gray and bare./ It did not give of bird or bush,/ Like nothing else in Tennessee. Wallace Stevens.
“Throw away the light, the definitions, and say what you see in the dark.” -- Wallace Stevens.

Baudelaire. In the 1840s he frequented the Paris taverns and became known in artistic circles as a dandy and free-spender - but he soon spent up. He published 'Les Fleurs du mal' in 1857 and produced studies of many of the people on this board. By 1859, his illnesses, his long-term use of laudanum, smoking opium, his life of stress and poverty had taken a toll and Baudelaire had aged noticeably. Eventually died penniless from a stroke.
"I cannot conceive of any beauty in which there is no melancholy." -- Charles Baudelaire, 1862
I just found this picture in a very serious website called Gallica. It might be a daguerréotype of Baudelaire taken in the 1850 (he was 29 at that time). It’s called “Young man sitting in an artist studio” but guess what we found on the back of the picture? However we can’t be perfectly sure… Plus it reminds me a lot of this painting by Emile Deroy. Even if it is not Baudelaire here, pardon me but this picture is really powerful and sublime.

These self portraits by some of the most famous authors' in history are fascinating, incredible works of art. Clearly this lot were oozing so much talent they simply couldn't contain it...

Sylvia Plath’s poetic talent should go unquestioned, but as Plath fans will know, she first intended to become a visual artist, and some of her earliest work remained hidden away in the family attic until 1996. In a collection of Plath’s work entitled Eye Rhymes: Sylvia Plath’s Art of the Visual, which features sketches, photographs, and portraits—such as this brooding 1951 self-portrait—that represent Plath’s work while an art student at Smith College.
