New Directions is pleased to announce the relaunch of the long-celebrated bi- lingual edition of Rimbaud?s A Season In Hell & The Drunken Boat ? a personal poem of damnation as well as a plea to be released from ?the examination of his own depths.?Rimbaud originally distributed A Season In Hell to friends as a self-published booklet, and soon afterward, at the age of nineteen, quit poetry altogether. New Directions?s edition was among the first to be published in the U.S., and it quickly became a classic. Rimbaud?s famous poem ?The Drunken Boat? was subsequently added to the first paperbook printing. Allen Ginsberg proclaimed Arthur Rimbaud as ?the first punk? ? a visionary mentor to the Beats for both his recklessness and his fiery poetry.This new edition proudly dons the original Alvin Lustig?designed cover, and a introduction by another famous rebel ? and now National Book Award?winner ? Patti Smith.
The French and English texts of Rimbaud's major prose poems are presented en face and are accompanied by a biographical chronology
