Product Description

Poet Arthur Rimbaud originally distributed A Season In Hell – a personal poem of damnation as well as a plea to be released from “the examination of his own depths” – as a self-published booklet and soon afterword, at the age of nineteen, quit poetry altogether. Allen Ginsberg proclaimed Rimbaud “the first punk” – a visionary mentor to the Beats for both his recklessness and his fiery poetry. This new edition dons the original cover by Alvin Lustig and present the original French and the classic Louise Varese translation of both A Season In Hell & The Drunken Boat. Patti Smith offers her reverie of praise, “Think of me he cries – and we must – immersing ourselves…in an infinite affair.” After all, Hamlet would read Rimbaud. Includes a Rimbaud Chronology. 103p.
