Focusing on the urban heart of the 1861 edition of Baudelaire's Les Fleurs du mal, this ecocritical analysis is concerned with the poetic consequences of placelessness in 'Les Sept Vieillards' and 'Les Petites Vieilles'. The article establishes a link between versification and environmental alteration; the unsettling diptych can thus be perceived as evoking a threshold for place identity, framed by Haussmann's modernization of Paris.
