Read full description of the books:
Edmund White comes through again. A very informative and entertaining short biography on Arthur Rimbaud. Through a confession of sort in the first part of the book, White has a personal interest in the relationship between Rimbaud and the poet Paul Verlaine. In other words, what a couple! But a relationship that really had an affect on contemporary literature.
Rimbaud is really the first punk rock figure. A total asshole who wrote like an angel. His beauty and his sometimes ugliness really added up to someone who became an iconic figure of everything that's punky and dangerous.
His years in Africa is fascinating as well - and the fact that he sort of kissed off his youth and his early genius is something that is both sad and yet ok in a funny way. Edmund White is a great essayist and biographer (he wrote the Genet bio) and yet, I haven't read his fiction. Nevertheless pick up on this book and just enjoy these horrible creatures (Verlaine and Rimbaud) and don't confuse them with Richard Hell and Tom Verlaine.
