    The intellectual and artistic upsurge was uncompromising of both the culture of “conformist” thought and political correctness. Inevitably, the Society members, ill-attuned to any accommodation of their Baudelairean conscience, became sidelined. Prospects in France were dimming, while promise for the future lay in England. There, in 1985, at the University of Oxford , Limouse, President of the Baudelaire Society, inaugurated his foundation in tribute to the Baudelairean past of Saint-Germain-des-Prés , at an event of “historic importance” .
    Two years later, at Chester , visitors to the Limouse Flowers of Evil Museum could scan the history of the Baudelaire Society, casting back to the moments of splendour which were a true golden age for Baudelaireans as well as to the splenetic periods that gave the Society “the image of a drunken ship struggling to emerge from tumultuous waters” . In fourteen years of activity , the Baudelairean museum left an impression transcending national boundaries . Today, after journeying for a century and a half, and against all expectations, the Baudelaire Society is continuing on its path unswerving, conveying of the bard of individual liberty an image which, doubtless, lulls the artist in his dreams, but also calls on the discernment of "those who appeal to people’s conscience" .

    Notes and Referencesreferences
    Established in 1872 at the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the Baudelaire Society was given a hierarchical structure, with a President at its head. Even so, it was ruled by a constitution radically opposed to the very notion of authority wielded by an organisation over an individual and, by the same token, refractory to any idea of a collective, let alone coercive resolution. Reflecting the writers and artists who studied its history, the Baudelaire Society therefore lies outside the classifications connoting with other types of cultural movement.
    From 1884 to 1903 the Baudelaire Society became established in more than 120 towns and cities across four continents. See the map in Philip Willoughby-Higson, Baudelaire and Limouse: their ennobling mission for art, Limouse Museum Publications, 2006.
