Rimbaud - New book of letters/works

Posted to WritersAndGenres




The translation is part of a collection of obscure and previously untranslated works by Rimbaud entitled "From Absinthe to Abyssinia"
Of course, from french to english - contains alot of letters that he wrote after he left his poetry/wild days behind him and went off to Abyssinia,Africa.Supposedly the letters that were not translated into english.
I previously assumed that all Rimbauds works/letters had already been translated....what took em so long???!!??
Has anyone had a chance to read this book yet?I think it has only been published(December 2002).
