In September 1871, Paul Verlaine, a poet, young but already established in Paris, received a letter from the provinces containing eight extraordinary poems by one Arthur Rimbaud. He wrote back at once, saying: "My dear great soul, come to us, you are summoned, you are expected." What follows is their story directly taken from their letters and poetry. While Verlaine was a great poet, Rimbaud was a genius, a revolutionary. His poems from age sixteen to the age of nineteen forever changed the face of modern poetry. Together, these two men feed each other's insatiable hunger for life and love, trying desperately to straddle the lines between knowledge and self-destruction, creativity and delusion
