    In high school, my favorite Po tes maudits were Baudelaire and Mayakovsky The whole Rimbaud cult brushed me only lightly as a teenager an edition of his complete works was one of but two books I brought on a trip to Russia, and I immediately regretted packing it To make matters worse, the alternative was As I Lay Dying, an kitschy p...

    For a comprehensive biography of Rimbaud, it s either this one or Graham Robb s book which came out around the same time, incidently, in the early 2000s Enid Starkie s early biography is also a must read but the later works are better overall simply due to the greater wealth of source material these authors had availible Most everything you d wish to know about the mecurial poet s life is here at least insofar as to what can be known So much remains a mystery, but then that s half of Rimbaud s continued allure, is it not Overall, this is a good book but at times is not as flowing and entertaining as Robb s biography, however, it is a stronger book than the Robb volume in its information and presentation Really though, you can t go wrong with either Steinmetz or...

    Disclaimer I have not posted a review of this book I have posted a few comments, quite as if I were entering certain of my responses into a reading journal.This is the third bio of AR that I ve read in the last two or three months quite enough for the present, I would say I find it interesting, however, how differently I read this particular volume It seems to me at this moment that while I read Robb and Nicholls on AR, I was acquiring information and formulating my own sense of AR and attempting to sketch a trajectory of his life from the bits of evidence and the results of rather inconclusive analyses and interpretations that these biographers presented As I read Steinmetz, I found myself looking for information, interpretations in his narrative that enhanced, amplified, confirmed, amended, refuted, etc., my ideas of the trajectory of AR s life and the sources of the energy and drive that propelled his life along that trajectory So it seems to me that I was better prepared to grapple with Steinmetz s account than I had been heretofor...

    this is probably my favorite rimbaud biography ive read tho it seems i say that with each passing book however, what makes this one different is the author s persistent resistance to make broad and particular strokes about rimbaud s life based on his writing Too often, Steinmetz points out and rightly so , biographers get rapt in their own obsession, usually due to some preoccupation with his writing, and thus bring to light yet another image of this enigmatic and brilliant individual only to obscure him into myth i got that sense for sure with enid starkie s predilection for alchemy via rimbauds poem voyelles graham robb s recent attempt also falls prey to this at the least with his too specific connection between rimbaud s childhood and the poem le bateau ivre his poems are used like some holy sign posts from which to fit his life around.at last, in this one rimbaud s life is carefully construed, rich with detail and, of course, the aptly relayed mysteries but in a way that y...
