View all copies of this ISBN edition:

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

-Martin Kanes Professor Emeritus of French and Humanities University of New York

" . . . [the vers nouveaux are] matchlessly beautiful . . . This is Rimbaud cast in the language of Twain and Whitman!"

-Bertrand Mathieu Author of Orpheus in Brooklyn Translator of A Season in Hell and Illuminations

"The punk Prometheus comes to life and sings. Les Corbeaux works as never before . . . I am impressed by the confident English poems made from early Rimbaud . . . "

-Ethan Fischer, Antietam Review

About the Author:

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.
