Arthur Rimbaud
(1854-1891)

Arthur Rimbaud was one of the wildest, most uncompromising poets of his age. As part of the decadent movement,  his influence on modern literature, music and art has been enduring and pervasive. Victor Hugo described him at the time as ‘an infant Shakespeare’. Rimbaud produced his best know works while still in his late teen and gave up poetry before he reached the age of 21 and embarked on a new life as an explorer, traveling extensively and working as a trader in Africa before his death from cancer less than a month after his 37th birthday.
