Charles Baudelaire, 1821 - 1867 Charles Baudelaire had perhaps had an immeasurable impact on modern poetry. Baudelaire then began to study law, at the Ecole de Droit in Paris, but devoted most of his time to debauchery. He was born on April 9, 1821, to Joseph-Francois Baudelaire and Caroline Archimbaut Dufays in Paris. He was educated first at a military boarding school and then the College Louis-le-Grand, where he was later expelled in 1839. After an abortive trip to the East, he settled in Paris and lived on an inheritance from his much despised step father, while he wrote poetry.
