The enfant terrible of 19th century French letters, Rimbaud wrote A SEASON IN HELL at age 18 at the tail end of a torrid year of hashish, absinthe, and man-love. A year later he would write ILLUMINATIONS, and after age 21, he stopped writing altogether. He died of cancer at age 37 after extensive travels, including trips to Ethiopia where he hung out with Haile Selassie's father.
This version of HELL has the French on one page and the English on the other, so you can learn how to say "I am lost, I am drunk, I am unclean" en Français. It has been described as "a poetic record of a man's examination of his own depths" which is rather accurate in a ravingly dark 19th century libertine manner.
