Format: Paperback
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.

I've read this book in Turkish. Then in English. I think Rimbaud is still the future of poetry. If you are looking for something to hold on to, you should have a look at this book. There is nothing but pure life, smell of the colors and eyes of the light which swows us the meaning. For we can make it bigger. That is what Rimbaud has done. That is what todays poetry and i am looking for i think.

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 [...]
