    One thought on “A Season in Hell/The Drunken Boat”

    1. What young boy exists who doesn t want to be Rimbaud The Grand daddy or rock n roll and modern literature A combination of Peter Pan and a thug, Rimbaud wrote beautifully as well as being sharp as a broken blade A Season In Hell indeed May I wonder in that neighborhood for a long time.

    2. This will be brief.While looking for a particular title for a friend in a box of old books today, I came across this I hadn t read Rimbaud in, god, twenty years As a painfully twee, suis generis teenager, I guess he was a bit of a hero a drunken, libidinal monster who, well, got laid a whole hell of a lot than I did though I matched him drink for drink It s dogeared and bears all the telltales of my youth, underlined passages included The young ladies, shockingly, did not faint at the sight of [...]

    3. Surely it must be never has a poet left so many wondering so much, over so few words a Preface by Patti Smith More an imaginative appreciation view spoiler In his confessional masterpiece, A Season in Hell, Arthur Rimbaud imparts the formula for the alchemical transformation of the soul, even as he simultaneously acknowledges the futility of acting upon it No one could exact a brutal analysis of this sublime scrap of illuminated consciousness than the poet himself In his own private Gethsemane [...]

    4. After reading his Illuminations, I decided that I definitely wanted to encounter of Arthur Rimbaud I was intrigued by his creative proposition that in order to become engaged with existence the poet must place himself at variance with life This positioning of the poet in surging counter subjectivity to life is somewhat Hegelian in that it induces not only a creative synthesis but suffering as its essential Muse While A Season in Hell is mature Rimbaud toward the end of his life, the Drunken Boa [...]

    5. I understand, and not knowing how to express myself without pagan words, I d rather remain silent.I am not going to lie to you This is definitely not the kind of book I would randomly read To be quite honest, I wasn t even aware of its existence until I found myself reading Patti Smith s M Train and watching Ed Harris Pollock in the very same week The title, A Season in Hell, was what caught my attention at first then there was Patti Smith s dedication to the author and the quote Lee Krasner Mar [...]

    6. initially i wrote this off as the drunken masturbatory ramblings of a privileged white boy in france which it is but once i shook off my distaste for that particular trope, i kinda started liking his bad ass shtick i really hated the intro although it s somewhat a necessity some dude blathers on in a horribly biased way about rimbaud for like 15 pages he fails to directly acknowledge hardships, queerness, blablablablabla, mostly trying to figure out how to get the whole of his body into rimbaud [...]

    7. I really enjoyed Illuminations but not so much this one, perhaps for its prose aspect Patti Smith s foreword is fun to read, though rather excessive in style and vulgarity Keeping Rimbaud s amazing literary story in mind, you can understand the farewell message quality His strongest themes of sacrilegious denial and mourning for his lost love for Verlaine go hand in hand Some of his imagery is brilliant, amazingly modern for its time, and yet some is immature and unfocused He was 19 when he wrot [...]

    8. Two of my favorite works by Arthur Rimbaud I have read the complete works several times and always enjoy reading new translations of Rimbaud This one has a marvelous introduction which really illustrates where Rimbaud was at during the period of his life when he wrote Une Saison en Enfer particularly concerning his tumultuous relationship with Paul Verlaine and it has some strengths in terms of language choices and clarity The opening lines of A Season in Hell dance memorably across my mind and [...]

    9. The Drunken Boat is written from the viewpoint of a sunk sad ship thatsled a exciting life.This poem protests the law of the market, slavery,war, etc It is visionary.It has gorgeous imagery such as the northernlights rising like a kiss to the sea and swells that batter like terrified cattle Rimbaud a child prodigy ran away from home as a teenand lived on the streets including a experimental commune.When the commune was forced closed by elite French soldiers , these soldiersgangbanged Rimbaud Art [...]

    10. Not pleased when I read in the biography that Rimbaud was involved in gun running and slave trading Then I got to the poems, and I don t care what Van Morrison and other rock stars say, I do not find these lines worth my time.

    11. Rimbaud s famed letter of resignation to the world of writing is a blistering journey through one man s soul as he struggles to come to terms with his art, the nature of love, morality, modernity and a whole host of other things Ignore the fact that this was written nearly in the present tense, while Rimbaud was in the midst of his suffering not after it had past , or that he had only been writing a few scant years or amazingly that he was barely out of his teens, was a genius and was never goin [...]

    12. What can i say about Arthur Rimbaud as a writer He was eighteen when he wrote this epic poem He almost never wrote again afterwards A Season in Hell is an epic poem married with a fanstastic short poem called The Drunken Boat The mass of this review will be of A Season in Hell As a begining writer I set it in my mind to write poems than verse I went to the book store one day and went straight to the poetry section I saw all kinds of great authors that i read in school But as i glanced at the pi [...]

    13. Satisfies and encourages every demand that it makes on its readers There is plenty in this text for pretty much anybody who wants to dig it out.What seems like teenage bravado and, let s be honest, is often read out of teenage bravado transcends the stereotypical limitations of the obstreperously drunk, young, rebellious, gifted, wild and unruly seer at the wheel.

    14. I was inspired to read Rimbaud after the editor of a poetry magazine referenced him in a critique of my youthful writing The poems were a challenge and dark but I read them and found them to be better than much of what I was being taught in high school English class at the time 1967.

    15. ARTH UR RIMBAUD L O FERR UNE SAISON EN ENFER 1873 1991 2000Ce texte est magique, ensorcel , maudit, magnifique, pervers, exquis de d licatesse et de na vet , envo tant du p ch d innocence et du crime de simplicit d esprit Il est un d lire sans fin mais sans commencement non plus sur l impossibilit dans laquelle Rimbaud se trouvait de simplement se poser dans une des bo tes cubiques qui sont sens es tre l habitat de chacun de nous dans une soci t moderne Et qu aurait il souffert s il avait connu [...]

    16. Rimbaud, darling, dearest Rimbaud A Season in Hell was his letter of resignation He had no hope, and he had decided to quit His hopes had lied with art and love and they had let him down Rimbaud saw himself as a visionary, but he had been failed by his mortality, by Christianity, by France Rimbaud wished to trespass onto a new level of consciousness, and instead of trying again, he quits This poem is written in the present tense, he wrote it whilst he was suffering this excommunication of the so [...]

    17. I want to give Mr Rimbaud five stars would give six if I could This is a fantastic, jaw dropping book of poetry Now I know why people rave about Rimbaud all the time.The first time I ever heard of Rimbaud was in my French literature class during the one year I spent abroad in Provence back in 1996 There was a poster on the wall with a drawing of man who had the Sylvester Stallone bad guy bandanna look from Rambo get it har har but with Rimbaud written underneath I think it was a poster advertisi [...]

    18. Rimbaud was only a young boy, still growing up, and yet his works gives an explosion of emotions The powerfulness expressed in A Season in Hell is what many writers aspire to write throughout their lives Upon reading Rimbaud s chronology, the readers see what Rimbaud s life was like Knowing his life, helped better understand why he wrote what he wrote and at the early stage of adulthood This book, though short, was great to read After reading the first page, I found myself reading the next, and [...]

    19. Though this book would be fantastic for people of any age, I feel like I, being 15, especially enjoyed it because Rimbaud s writing is basically fueled on teen angst My theory as to why he stopped writing at the ripe old age of 19 is because he aged out of his teenage hatred of anything and everything I mean, he basically put himself through hell so that he could be seen as a tortured soul and so that he would have material for his poetry He even said I m now making myself as scummy as I can Why [...]

    20. I love the idea that Rimbaud gave up poetry at the age of seventeen, just when many other writers are barely getting started Unfortunately, that was probably a good thing, because he was so smashed, half of what he wrote doesn t make any sense Poetry doesn t always need to conform to reality on the surface, but underneath, it needs to have some sense of an alternate reality as a whole, which I found lacking in The Drunken Boat than A Season in Hell I enjoy some of Rimbaud s imagery, and poetry [...]

    21. I agree with those who prefer the conventionally formed Drunken Boat And those who consider the guy who wrote the chronology of Rimbaud s life a jerk Une saison en enfer I can t claim to have followed lucidly in its entirety, but it s certainly an arresting, Romantic assault on civilization petit bourgeois morality In embracing Europe s others, particularly Africans, it indulges in racist stereotypes itself But the effect of the whole is a rage against conventionality though also a lament of th [...]

    22. Rimbaud s words in this collection are aggressive and defiant I felt a heavy stone had sat in my thought during reading, even when I finished His thoughts goes round and round He seemed to have worried about his future, then struggled in emotional turmoil between the society and himself As considering his age and background, it was natural But his mind was very mature.I will read again someday after I experience struggles I think the next time I would be glad to receive his words.

    23. I expected to be blown away by this book but I wasn t I really wanted to read an absolutely undeniable work of genius by a teenager and think wow, that s incredible, but, as I said, I didn t I think it read like a teenager, like a slightly smarter, slightly enlightened, slightly cultured teenager, but a teenager none the less The uncertain, meandering, self obsessed, angst riddled hallmarks are all there I don t know I just wasn t that impressed.

    24. I wanted to throw the book against the wall while reading the first half, and then tell Rimbaud to grow up But things improved with the poetry and reflective passages I swooned over the following At first it was an experiment I wrote silences, I wrote night I recorded the inexpressible I fixed frenzies in their flight.

    25. mind blowing, haunting, beautifully written.It s like Rimbaud poured his heart, his mind, his soul into it and rather than just reading his writing, I felt like I was listening to his inner thoughts It s beautiful, wonderfully so.I fell in love after I read Delirium I.

    26. I m not a big poetry person, and read this because my kid bought itobably because of the Patti Smith foreword Perhaps unfortunately, it comes with a biography section that really makes Rimbaud sound like a dick he did some deeply heinous crap It s hard to read through the story of his life and then judge his poetry on its merits but, again, I m not a poetry person, so have a hard time judging it on its merits Anyway, there were phrases and passages that jumped out at me due to their sheer power [...]
