Book Description

3 July 2008 P.S.

One of the world's most influential poets, Arthur Rimbaud (1854-1891) is remembered as much for his volatile personality and tumultuous life as he is for his writings, almost all of which he produced before the age of twenty. Paul Schmidt's acclaimed collection brings together his complete poetry, prose, and letters, including "The Drunken Boat," "The Orphans' New Year," "After the Flood," and "A Season in Hell." Complete Works is divided into eight "seasons"—Childhood, the Open Road, War, the Tormented Heart, the Visionary, the Damned Soul, a Few Belated Cowardices, and the Man with the Wind at His Heels—that reflect the facets of Rimbaud's life. Insightful commentary by Schmidt reveals the courage, vision, and imagination of Rimbaud's poetry and sheds light on one of the most enigmatic figures in letters.

2.0 out of 5 stars Clunky translations 8 Sep 2013
By Jamie
Whilst the book is good for providing his entire works and selected letters at a good price, the language is too clunky for most of the time. Wyatt Mason's translations seem to be a lot more flowing and capture the mood better. For example Mason's translation for 'Novel' (the name chosen for his translation) here [...] is a lot more atmospheric than Schmidt's take on it named 'Romance' in this book here [...]

5.0 out of 5 stars A Poet Far Ahead Of His Time 23 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I adore Rthur Rimbaud. His poetry is so deep and penetrating. He is candid and honest to the point of being brutal. I love his observation and commentary about the religion of his day (and ours) that puts the material riches, accessories and ritual before the flesh and blood of the congregation. Upside down and wrong way round if one is to believe Christ, The Prophets and The Martyrs. "Le Mal" ("Evil") is my favourite of his poems.

In loving memory of the wonderful Arthur Rimbaud, The Eternal Youth.

A book for anyone who enjoys good writing. Filled with life and fantastic imagery, the only thing lacking in this collection are the original versions in French. Other than that, the translations are excellent, so much that one forgets that the poems were originally written in another langauge.
