"Le rimbaldisme se prête aux rêveries de celui qui s'y adonne, j'en parle comme d'une drogue, il se conforme à son degré de science et d'ignorance, de culture et de sauvagerie. Ce n'est pas une philosophie. C'est un ciel. Chacun s'en arrange, il n'a qu'à lever les yeux pour être ébloui'."

More than a century after Arthur Rimbaud composed hisIlluminations, they are reborn in John Ashbery's magnificenttranslation. It is fitting that the major American poet since HartCrane and Wallace Stevens should give us this noble version of theprecursor of all three.--Harold Bloom
This is the book that made poetry modern, and John Ashbery's sizzling new translation lets Rimbaud's eerie grandeur burst into English. Finally we have the key to open the door onto these magic Illuminations, and all their 'elegance, knowledge, violence!' This is an essential volume, a true classic.--J. D. McClatchy
To translate from one language into another is to risk losing the force, the soul, of the original. But not in this instance of John Ashberry's splendid version of Rimbaud's Illuminations. "Wise music is missing from our desire," he writes in his English version of the last line of "Conte" ("Tale"), losing neither the substance nor the truth of Rimbaud's great poetry.--Paula Fox, author of Desperate Characters
A marriage divine.--Joy Williams, author of "State of Grace"
