Format: Paperback
Rimbaud's poetry is generally dark, and disheartening but when considering the fact that it was all written in his adolescence, its genius is undeniable. His fantastic command of surreal imagery and twisted metaphors is amazing to read, yet the undercurrents of a genius-mind evidently tortured and twisted out of all recognition is as disturbing as it is enthralling. You may well find yourself somewhat regretting and yet still enjoying reading this collection. (Note, even if you have no knowledge of French, READ THE FRENCH! Much of the power of the poetry comes from its rhythm which is lost in translation)

Don't buy this book 24 Nov 2011
By Jackson M. Dunckel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Really. I braved the last review, and threw away $7. English and French is all mixed up, so it's useless even if you're fluent.

Great translation, but the e-book is messed up. 8 July 2009
By Douglas Matus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was thrilled when I found this; I've been wanting a decent kindle edition of Rimbaud's poems for some time. I was so excited I bought it without looking at the preview, which was unfortunate, because something went horrible wrong with the e-book conversion. The book is supposed to be the original French with facing English translations. In the Kindle edition, however, the English and French are randomly mixed up; poems will have a few French stanzas, then a couple English; or, the English translation will abruptly end, with the remainder randomly inserted into the next poem. Extremely frustrating. Please fix this Amazon, or, better yet, create a decent Kindle edition of the Wyatt Mason translations.
