I Promise to be Good by Arthur Rimbaud

Book Description

One of the most written-about literary figures in the past decade, Arthur Rimbaud left few traces when he abandoned poetry at age twenty-one and disappeared into the African desert. Although the dozen biographies devoted to Rimbaud's life depend on one main source for information - his own correspondence - a complete edition of these remarkable letters has never been published in English. Until now.

Author Biography - Arthur Rimbaud

The poetic genius of Arthur Rimbaud (1854 1891) blossomed early and burned briefly. Nearly all of his work was composed when he was in his teens. During the century following his death at thirty-seven, Rimbaud s work and life have influenced generations of readers and writers. Radical in its day, Rimbaud s writing took some of the first and most fundamental steps toward the liberation of poetry from the formal constraints of its history, and now represents one of the most powerful and enduring bodies of poetic expression in human history. Wyatt Mason is a contributing editor of "Harper s" magazine, where his essays regularly appear. He also writes for "The London Review of Books" and "The New Republic." The Modern Library has published his translations of the complete works of Arthur Rimbaud in two volumes. His translations of Dante s "Vita Nuova "and Montaigne s "Essais" are in progress."
