I read a review in the Guardian Saturday Review which encouraged ne to investigate this work. The translation seems to this retired teacher of French to be more accurate than the original! It goes beyond the words to an area where translators usually fear to go! I am not a fan of the unhygenic M. Rimbaud, but just generally interested in French music poetry and song, and this has opened my eyes and mind to new horizons. The title recalled to me the song cycle Les Illuminations by the young Benjamin Britten, which also enthralled me, so although I need to rereadthis book a number of times, I do not regret buying it for one instant.
