3.0 out of 5 stars A thrilling look inside the mind of an insane genius
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars A thrilling look inside the mind of an insane genius, 3 Aug 2001
This review is from: Collected Poems: with parallel French text (Oxford World's Classics) (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)
