Arthur Rimbaud (1854 - 1891)

  • About
  • Reviews
  • Arthur Rimbaud (1854–1891) was born in Charleville, Ardennes. His creativity coincided with his turbulent relationship with Paul Verlaine in his late teens. All his poetry was written before he was 21. He gave up writing and began to travel, spending 11 years in the port town Aden in Abyssinia (Yemen). Ill, he returned to France and died of cancer in a Marseilles hospital.

    Praise for Arthur Rimbaud (1854 - 1891) 'Absolute modernity is perhaps granted by this translation, published nearly a century after the original work, infusing the poems with a newfound modernity...Rimbaud's hallucinatory visions translated as poetry and prose is beautifully rendered by Ashbery who manages to transcend the limits of language.'
    Emma Kious, DURA
