This is a reissue of Rimbaud’s highly influential work with a new preface by Patti Smith and the original 1945 New Directions cover design by Alvin Lustig.

New Directions is pleased to announce the relaunch of the long-celebrated bilingual 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 19, quit poetry altogether. This edition was among the first to be published in the US, and quickly became a classic, and Rimbaud’s famous poem “The Drunken Boat” was subsequently added. 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 an introduction by another famous rebel, and now National Book Award winner, Patti Smith.

English Version Great - French Missing

Five stars for recording Louise Varese's translation of these poems. I read Rimbaud when I was young, and have revisited these works over the years. Great to hear them read.

Four stars for advertising a bilingual edition (the print edition probably includes both, as my old paperback does). This recording has no French version - bummer!

The reader does a fine job - but he sounds like an older guy (I can relate!). Rimbaud wrote these poems around age 20 - they should be read by a younger voice.

That said - these are great translations of Rimbaud's most famous works. Five stars for that.

Better than I thought!

I really enjoyed this. while the first part of the book was a little disturbing. It only got better as the audio book progressed. it is definitely worth a listen.
