Product description

New Directions is pleased to announce the relaunch of the long-celebrated bi- lingual edition of Rimbaud s A Season In Hell & The Drunken Boat a personal poem of damnation as well as a plea to be released from the examination of his own depths. Rimbaud originally distributed A Season In Hell to friends as a self-published booklet, and soon afterward, at the age of nineteen, quit poetry altogether. New Directions s edition was among the first to be published in the U.S., and it quickly became a classic. Rimbaud s famous poem The Drunken Boat was subsequently added to the first paperbook printing. Allen Ginsberg proclaimed Arthur Rimbaud as the first punk a visionary mentor to the Beats for both his recklessness and his fiery poetry. This new edition proudly dons the original Alvin Lustig designed cover, and a introduction by another famous rebel and now National Book Award winner Patti Smith."
