This book is a poetic exploration of the work and life of the 19th century French poet Arthur Rimbaud. The book is addressed to Rimbaud, and follows short poetic brevities, talking to Rimbaud as if he was in the room.

Rimbaud led a fascinating life. From his beginnings in provincial France, through to his arrivals in Paris, through his bohemian years, his relationship with Paul Verlaine, and his final departure for Africa to become a merchant trader.

Never has one individual achieved so much in such a short time frame. Rimbaud gave up poetry at 21, but his corpus remains as rich as any who has spent a life time endeavouring in their field.
