Certes, un thyrse ne saurait etre l'equivalent exact d'un caducee, mais, dans un premier temps, nous suivrons Gale dans son raisonnement:
In his prose-poem << Le Thyrse >>, the image corresponds accurately to the definition of thyrsus [.
De Quincey [flecha diestra] caducee thyrse [flecha diestra] caducee [flecha diestra] Baudelaire
Autrement dit, De Quincey et Baudelaire seraient relies par un chiasme ayant pour centre le thyrse et le phenomene qui permet aux << Fleurs >> d'entrer dans le domaine du << Mal >> serait le meme que celui permettant a l'oeuvre de De Quincey d'entrer dans le domaine de l'oeuvre de Baudelaire.
En d'autres termes, les Confessions seraient le tuteur autour duquel poussent les fleurs d'Un mangeur d'opium et l'on retrouverait ici l'image du thyrse telle que Baudelaire la decrit dans son petit poeme en prose << Le Thyrse >>:

Le thyrse est la representation de votre etonnante dualite, maitre puissant et venere, cher Bacchant de la Beaute mysterieuse et passionnee .
When the FU lacks a paracladial zone and is only composed of the main florescence, if the florescences comprise partial florescences arranged along an axis, then the FU is a spike-like thyrse, such as occurs with Amaranthus, Digera, Chamissoa Kunth, Pleuropterantha Franch.
