Abstract:

The life of Arthur Rimbaud, a man who gave up writing at the age of 25, remains as legendary as his poetic work. The author delivers here the first biography which, rather than dividing Rimbaud's life in two halves-as have all of his other biographers-brings out the spiritual and logical continuity underlying his 36-year-long "pursuit of desire." He makes sense of a hurried, tempestuous life and offers what should be the standard life of Rimbaud for many years to come.
