Baudelaire, his publisher and the printer were successfully prosecuted for creating an offense against public morals . They were fined, but Baudelaire was not imprisoned.  Six of the poems were suppressed, but printed later as Les Épaves ( The Wrecks ) ( Brussels , 1866). Another edition of Les Fleurs du mal , without these poems, but with considerable additions, appeared in 1861. Many notables rallied behind Baudelaire and condemned the sentence. Victor Hugo wrote to him: "Your fleurs du mal shine and dazzle like stars.... I applaud your vigorous spirit with all my might."  Baudelaire did not appeal the judgment, but his fine was reduced. Nearly 100 years later, on May 11, 1949, Baudelaire was vindicated, the judgment officially reversed, and the six banned poems reinstated in France.
