I know not entirely that I for one am unable to form any conception of another life that might approach a clear and accurate approximation of past reality by grappling with only one biography The reasons are many and I need Another brilliant biography from Robb re reading for a fourth time this s one of my favorite biographies from one of my favorite biographers robb s portrait cuts through the lice filth and mythos surrounding the late 19th century vagabond demigogue and symbolist poet highly recommended There will never be a single biography that does Rimbaud total justice and that s as Si encuentro tu nombre en el fuego it should be being the mystery man he was Rimbaud lived his entire life on the edge bet the edge of meaning or the edge of civilization and civilized behavior and because of this he himself didn t have the time or desire for looking back or specifying n retrospect what he was up to He was always riding the wave of the Present Tense or even ahead of t Curveball in the never attained Future as long as he lived full of contradictions only to those who wanted to figure him outRobb presents Rimbaud and his 19th cn a very earthy gritty smelly fecal lice An Elegy for Mathematics infested way via a prose thats A Stranger on the Beach itself kind of coarse and craggy He doesn t have much patience with the angelic Rimbaud all wrapped upn metaphysical transcendence and arcane possibly occult theories His Rimbaud Coming Home is a much bigger drinker drug user and buggeree than I previously thought and a vile prankster jerking offn his housemate s glass of milk poisoning dogs shitting on a table during a party and running his hands through Strasberg at the Actors Studio: Tape-Recorded Sessions it etc But his Rimbauds also a Ulture During his lifetime he was a bourgeois baiting visionary and the list of his known crimes s longer than the list of his published poems But his posthumous car.

Eer s even astonishing saint to symbolists and surrealists; poster child for anarchy and drug use; gay pioneer; a major nfluence on artists from Picasso to Bob Dyla.

I don t think there are many people The Precarious: The Art and Poetry of Cecilia Vicuna / Vicuna, Cecilia. Esther Allen, tr. QUIPOem. Two books in one (Wesleyan Poetry) 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 becausen many The Color of Water instancest s the Only Way To Feel As If You way to feel as Mayan Strawberries if you meeting someone you can never meet because of life circumstances or of course death When I hear of someone that I findnteresting I make Bill Gates (Up Close) it a point to find out about himher and sometimes the only way to do thats to readwatch hisher work Mistaken Mistress if that s an option or find a solid biography of thatndividual s life Of course much of the supposition of that Bunny: A Novel individual s personality has to be drawn from acuaintances correspondence and choices So we make a lot ofnferences but I think Robb does a bang up job of presenting a very human dea 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 ndividuals after death to somehow make them saint like or pure than they could have ever been The Great Smog of India in life With the posthumous success of Rimbaud s poetry I think manyndividuals have done just that freezing Rimbaud at the tender age of 17 Forever trapping him n the role of that freezing Rimbaud at the tender age of 17 Forever trapping him n the role of poet and Verlaine s tempestuous lover And The Sex of the Angels, the Saints in their Heaven: A Breviary its 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 mpression that Rimbaud was always pushing some boundary somehow striving to Achieve To Expand Upon to expand upon 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 n which Popular Hits 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 ast suited his needs Above all else he was adaptable and resourcefulThere s something so tough about Rimbaud which s evidenced by his correspondence his demanding nature and his forceful reuests to family and friends when he needed help Yet there s something very vulnerable at the heart of Rimbaud and that uality s what has drawn people to his work and life even over 100 years after his death This whizzes The Creative Habit into my Top ten Best Ever Biography you don t get thatn High Fidelity because Robb manages to write sublime caustic prose that corrects both the record and the myth that surrounds Rimbaud Robb knows his stuff and writes beautiful lyrical prose whilst also being alive to the obsfuscations and mistakes made by earlier writers We see Rimbaud as an enfant terrible writing poetry that both harked back to the remnants of romanticism but also looked forward to modernism and beyond We see his relationship with Verlaine and the self destructi.
