the weird combination of craziness, immaturity, intuition and insight, obscenity and remorse . . . that marks Rimbaud's work."

Arthur Rimbaud (1854-1891), "a prodigious and prodigal adolescent," composed his entire body of work between the ages of 15 and 19. He took poetry "beyond literature." The latter half of his life was spent in Africa as a trader in coffee,hides, ivory, and guns. He died in Marseilles at age 37,on his way back to Africa.
Translator Dennis J. Carlile (b. 1946) first encountered the poetry of Rimbaud at a summer concert in 1965 or 1966 where tenor Charles Bressler sang Benjamin Britten's Les Illuminations. Mr. Carlile is the author of several plays, among them Carved In the Fog, Delmore At The Last, and JUMP! The Madness of Nijinsky, written for Alexander Jones.Language Notes:
