Baudelaire concludes this text with a very personal remark on the destiny of poetry:

"It is a large destiny that the one from the poetry ! Happy or lamentable, she door always at oneself the divine character utopian. She contradicts without ceases the fact, à sentence from do more be. In the dungeon she go to fact revolt ; à the window from the hospital, she is ardent hope from cure ; in the attic torn and unclean, she go to screen as a fairy from luxury and from elegance ; no only she notes but she repairs. Everywhere she go to fact negation from iniquity."
