An Atmospherics of the City

Ross Chambers

Fordham University Press

A brief reading of “L’Ennemi” [The Enemy] introduces the concept of noise as a signifier of time-the-enemy; and the allegorical figures of the major poems of “Tableaux Parisiens” [Parisian Pictures] are described as a function of the section on urban statuary in Baudelaire’s account of the 1859 Art Salon. The figure of the “noisy chiasmus” as an allegorical device of disalienation is discussed with reference to “Le Cygne” [The Swan].

Keywords:   allegory, noise, chiasmus, disalienation
