21st Centuary Rimbaud.

Posted to WritersAndGenres




I'm writing a piece on Rimbaud for my first year BA Creative writing. The title given for stimulus was 'arrival in Paris' so I thought I'd do the whole Rimbaud Verlaine thing, trouble is Arthur is such a grandad name and I dont want to call him 'Rimbaud' as I dont want it to be him as a historical character, more him as I imagine him to be if he'd of lived today. Does anyone have any ideas on what I can call him? Whatever it is it has to be Bohemian! I'm going for a Dennis Cooper style love story, so any suggestions would be gratefully recieved. Cheers!
