Personal Quote:

When the endless servitude of woman is finally shattered, when she comes to live by and for herself, man - up to then abominable - having released her, she too will be a poet! Woman will find a portion of the unknown! Will her world of ideas differ from ours? She will find strange, unfathomable, repulsive, delicious things.


His relationship with fellow poet Paul Verlaine was the subject of Christopher Hampton's 1967 play "Total Eclipse". Hampton later adapted his play for the 1995 film version (Total Eclipse (1995)) directed by 'Agneiska Holland' and starring Leonardo DiCaprio as Rimbaud. See more »
