Arthur Rimbaud : Complete Works
by Arthur Rimbaud




Overview -

"The hallucinatory prose-poems of Arthur Rimbaud rank among the glories of 19th-century French literature." -- New York Times

One of the world's most influential poets, Arthur Rimbaud (1854-1891) is remembered as much for his volatile personality and tumultuous life as he is for his writings, almost all of which he produced before the age of twenty. Paul Schmidt's acclaimed collection brings together his complete poetry, prose, and letters, including The Drunken Boat, The Orphans' New Year, After the Flood, and A Season in Hell. Complete Works is divided into eight seasons--Childhood, the Open Road, War, the Tormented Heart, the Visionary, the Damned Soul, a Few Belated Cowardices, and the Man with the Wind at His Heels--that reflect the facets of Rimbaud's life. Insightful commentary by Schmidt reveals the courage, vision, and imagination of Rimbaud's poetry and sheds light on one of the most enigmatic figures in letters.
