Click for availability and more information Rimbaud Complete, by Arthur Rimbaud

"I became opera; I saw that all living things were doomed, to bliss: that's not living..." Rimbaud Complete is the most recent collection of poems, essays, uncollected writings & prose by Arthur Rimbaud (1854-1891). Translator/editor Wyatt Mason has done a terrific job capturing the "metrical & musical rigor unique to French poetry" that made Rimbaud's works stand out over the past century and a half. Many American poets such as William Carlos Williams, Lawrence Ferlinghetti & Charles Bukowski, not to mention songwriter Bob Dylan, have been influenced by Rimbaud's style. Read, and speak it, for yourself. (Recommended poems: "Young Coupledom", "The Drunken Boat")
