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.


A brilliant yet tortured artiste who searched for a new style of literary expression, Rimbaud never wrote for publication again after his major work "A Season in Hell". He turned his back on the artistic world and traveled on three continents for about 20 years until he died at age 37. His poetry, as well as his life, made an indelible impression on 20th century writers, artists and musicians. See more »
