Read full description of the books:
Arthur Rimbaud's meteoric career was crammed into four teenage years in which he wrote two masterpieces, The Illuminations and A Season in Hell, and some wonderful short poems. At nineteen he then rejected the literary life and left France. Oliver Bernard, poet and translator of Guillaume Apollinaire, presents both the French and Latin poems in bilingual form with lively and accurate prose versions and a useful and entertaining introduction. A selection of letters is also included. This is the best and most helpful presentation of the French genius' work for English-language readers and students of French poetry.Oliver Bernard's most recent collection of poems was Verse &c (Anvil Press, 2001). He lives in Norfolk, England.

Read information about the authorFrench poet and adventurer, who stopped writing verse at the age of 19, and who became, after his early death an inextricable myth in French gay life. Rimbaud's poetry, partially written in free verse, is characterized by dramatic and imaginative vision. "I say that one must be a visionary - that one must make oneself a VISIONARY." His works are among the most original in the Symbolist movement. Rimbaud's best-known work, LE BÂTEAU IVRE (The Drunken Boat), appeared in 1871. In the poem, he sent a toy boat on a journey, an allegory for a spiritual quest.
It is found again.
It is the sea
Gone with the sun.
(from 'L'Éternite', 1872)
Arthur Rimbaud was born in Charleville, France, as the son of Fréderic Rimbaud, a career soldier, and Marie-Catherine-Vitale Cuif, an unsentimental matriarch. Rimbaud's father left the family, and from the age of six, young Arthur was raised by his strictly religious mother. Rimbaud was educated in a provincial school until the age of fifteen. He was an outstanding student but his behavior was considered provocative. After publishing his first poem, in 1870, at the age of 16, Rimbaud wandered through northern France and Belgium, and was returned to his home in Paris by police.
