Summary/Abstract: This article aims to analyse Poe’s and Baudelaire’s attitude toward idealism. Scolars have long considered whether Baudelaire might be named the disciple of Poe on this matter. There are still many diffirences of opinion. This article is an attempt to identify the discours against idealism in the tales of Poe and to show its influence on Baudelaire’s literary work. This is important to examine the idea that the French poet recognised in the oeuvre of the author of Ligeia the modern reflection on experience and art. Great attention must be given to the work of Baudelaire as a translator of American’s tales.
