    What awesome poem. I loved it when I read it years ago and I love it even now. It makes you long for a place that may no longer be there. (Report)Reply

    Classic Rimbaud, the unsuspecting paradigm shift: that night your lover writes...(something sweet...i love you) , NO, that night you return to the Blinding cafes and order beer, but then he brings you out of the hole with another paradigm shift - -no one's serious at seventeen. Rimbaud in A Season In Hell, mentions Islam a couple times, but in all his writings he never once uses the words Jew or Jewish. In this poem he talks about dark blue stung by a sinister star small and white. I will often think of him often at all times of the day and He did come after shakespear (Report)Reply

    if blinding cafes are too that at 17, can I use that as an excuse for not going to a party at 62? (Report)Reply

    its a sincere fact of the age group 17 and its factually true...no one is serious at 17...careless attitude and the love for everything...love it (Report)Reply

    The eternal youth...loses his power due to the lack of his masterpieces.Need more 'Illuminations', Novel's only a part of his poetic majesty.... (Report)Reply

    This is a great translation of Novel- I'm in love with the poem- It comes from Rimbaud Complete, which, as it says, has all of Rimbaud's poems. Worth checking out. (Report)Reply
