Inhaltsangabe: 'The poet makes himself a seer by a long, prodigious, and rational disordering of all the senses...' Rimbaud was sixteen when he made this famous declaration. By 1886, then thirty-two and an explorer, trader and slave-trader on the Red Sea, he had absolutely no interest in the fate or success of the poetry infused with mysticism, alchemy and magic that he had written in his teens. That same year, in Paris, "Les Illuminations" was being published as the work of 'the late' Arthur Rimbaud, first in a Symbolist periodical and then in book form, with an Introduction by his former lover, Verlaine. Seldom has a writer's vision of changing the world through words failed so spectacularly as did Rimbaud's. That failure turned him into an incomparable tragic poet: not only 'a wild undisciplined genius, a mystic philosopher and thinker, an inspired poet' but also, according to Enid Starkie, 'one of the most finished artists ...a supreme master of prosody and style'. This 'Penguin Classic' reproduces the text of "The Pleiade edition", 1954, with selected letters and prose translations that have been highly acclaimed.
