9780821224588: A Season In Hell

Written by Arthur Rimbaud at age eighteen in the wake of his tempestuous affair with fellow poet Paul Verlaine, A SEASON IN HELL has been a touchstone for anguished poets, artists and lovers for more than a century. Imbued with a hallucinatory intensity, this confessional prose poem is an account of a hellish journey beyond the bounds of society - and the attempt to find a way back.

Based on an edition first published in 1986, this stunning volume presents Rimbaud's poem in both the original French and an English translation - and opens each of the poems eight sections with a dazzling photograph by Robert Mapplethorpe that brilliantly complements the poems shifting moods. These images by one of the most notorious contemporary photographers underline the striking modernity of Rimbaud's great work - and makes this a perfect gift for friends, lovers and fans of either artist.

Sinossi:

Written by Rimbaud at age 18 in the wake of a tempestuous affair with fellow poet, Paul Verlaine, A Season in Hell has been a touchstone for anguished poets, artists and lovers for over a century. This volume presents the text in French and English with photographs by Robert Mapplethorpe.

Recensione:

A vigorous book ( Mary Margaret McCabe, TLS)

The strangest thing about A SEASON IN HELL is that, even though it is a meticulous catalogue of her descent into this other, diminished, way of life ... it ends up being immensely cheering ( Maureen Freely, GUARDIAN)

The struggle to assert control over chaos, and the painful realisation that your former life can never be resumed, is a powerful theme of the book ( Julie Wheelwright, INDEPENDENT)

An awesome testament to the bravery of a woman who manages to defy a supposedly unbeatable disease. ( BIG ISSUE)
