ABOUT "Le Poète Maudit":The figure of the artist cursed recurring at this time it takes on a mythical dimension . This adjective denotes the tendency of many intellectuals to desecrate the values and conventions of bourgeois society and to choose deliberately , as a gesture of supreme refusal , evil and abjection . The artist becomes the one who chooses the path of self-destruction to deviate from the values of a society that does not understand it , welcomes therefore miserable lives characterized by vice of the flesh , the excesses and abuse of alcohol and drugs . Destructive impulses , attraction to death and refusal to bourgeois society are elements that unite the damned poets and make them members of the Decadent .
