summary Rimbaud A Biography

Rimbaud A Biography review ↠ 100 Unknown beyond the avant garde at the time of his death Arthur Rimbaud 1854 1891 has been one of the most destructive and liberating influences on twentieth century c. I don t think there are many people in this world that have the ability to simutaneously allure and repulse but based on Robb s biography I would assign Rimbaud to this categoryI read biographies because in many instances it s the only way to feel as if you re meeting someone you can never meet because of life circumstances or of course death When I hear of someone that I find interesting I make it a point to find out about himher and sometimes the only way to do that is to readwatch hisher work if that s an option or find a solid biography of that individual s life Of course much of the supposition of that individual s personality has to be drawn from acuaintances correspondence and choices So we make a lot of inferences but I think Robb does a bang up job of presenting a very human idea of what Rimbaud was like Despite the fact that he s obviously a fan of Rimbaud s work he never parks Rimbaud on a pedestal We have a tendency to romanticize individuals after death to somehow make them saint like or pure than they could have ever been in life With the posthumous success of Rimbaud s poetry I think many individuals have done just that freezing Rimbaud at the tender age of 17 Forever trapping him in the role of boy poet and Verlaine s tempestuous lover And it is precisely that typecasting that I think Rimbaud spent the remainder of his life trying to desert I think he would loathe that his legacy has less to do with those actions he was actually proud to have accomplished his explorer s spirit than his adolescent years as a troubled poetRobb definitely leaves us with the distinct impression that Rimbaud was always pushing some boundary somehow striving to achieve to expand upon limits of what society deemed worthwhile or normal It was precisely because of this that he always seemed a step ahead of his peers and colleagues and was misunderstood misrepresented and unable to be fully appreciated for his contributions both to literature and to exploration And I think he struggled between his disdain for man for not being able to ascend to his level of forward thinking and chose the life of a loner a life of mystery a life in which it always seemed he was looking down on everyone from a lofty heightRimbaud s terseness and unpleasantness are conflicted with stories from acuaintances regarding his verbosity and pleasantness However I do think that Rimbaud had the ability to play many different roles as it suited his needs Above all else he was adaptable and resourcefulThere is something so tough about Rimbaud which is evidenced by his correspondence his demanding nature and his forceful reuests to family and friends when he needed help Yet there is something very vulnerable at the heart of Rimbaud and that uality is what has drawn people to his work and life even over 100 years after his death

Rimbaud A Biography review ↠ 100 Ulture During his lifetime he was a bourgeois baiting visionary and the list of his known crimes is longer than the list of his published poems But his posthumous car. A few weeks ago I picked up John Ashbery s celebrated translation of Rimbaud s Illuminations and as I was browsing through it I realized I had only the sketchiest notion of Rimbaud s life essentially a few mangled fragments from Enid Starkie s 1968 doorstop and some noxious images from Total Eclipse All I knew was that he d written a handful of iconoclastic poems had filthy sex with Verlaine then pitched it all aside and wandered off to Africa to dieGraham Robb s biography as I expected after reading Strangers last summer is superb Robb embraces the full context of Rimbaud s short life reaching beyond the mythic Satanic adolescent to include the eually intrepid imperialistexplorer I have tried at least to allow Rimbaud to grow up Robb begins Whatever your aesthetic or political investment Rimbaud s brilliant brutal life and death is astonishing disgusting and grimly funny Robb is also uite funny especially when he s dissing all the Rimbaud biographies which preceded his ownMy only complaint with this mostly well designed book is the abysmal uality of the photographs which look like copies made from copies on a cheap office machine Someone at Norton should be slapped Anyway our life is misery endless misery So why do we exist Send me your news Best wishes Rimbaud writing from the Marseilles hospital where he died
