    I m an organized person Psychotically organized Except when it comes to books I try to plan my readings, I try to finish one book in order to begin a new one, but it s all in vain I read what I want to read, whenever I have the need of reading it So, with four books on my currently reading shelf, today I felt like reading something different First, some weird stuff by Tim Burton, then, A Season in Hell caught my attention and here we are.Anyway, this is one of those books I should read whi I m an organized person Psychotically organized Except when it comes to books I try to plan my readings, I try to finish one book in order to begin a new one, but it s all in vain I read what I want to read, whenever I have the need of reading it So, with four books on my currently reading shelf, today I felt like reading something different First, some weird stuff by Tim Burton, then, A Season in Hell caught my attention and here we are.Anyway, this is one of those books I should read while being drunk Unfortunately, I don t drink So, it was kind of difficult to understand what the hell I was reading This prose work, written by Rimbaud at age 18, is divided into nine parts And that s the most accurate observation I can give The rest is pure symbolism hard to get if you haven t read something about his life and his troubled affair with Verlaine quite a profound inspiration here These are words written by a young and tormented soul, desperate to put everything out there, to purge himself Words written with exquisite sensibility, describing beautiful, dark, intense images I saw that, in all its glory, in the first part, Introduction The second part, Bad Blood, it s a collection of the consequences of his ancestors, his blood, and other weird reflections that made me think I probably wouldn t like what he was smoking at that time The third part was well, I don t want to say that I enjoyed reading it, because it s about the narrator s death and his arrival to hell nothing really nice to read right before going to bed, honestly , but it s beautifully written Again, this young man makes you feel what was going through his mind and soul with unsettling details.The forth part is Ravings I, Foolish Virgin, The Infernal Spouse I m guessing you can imagine to whom he s referring in this one.I shouldn t keep spoiling this, right So, during all this strange journey from existence on earth to condemnation in hell, it remains only one question to be asked can he be saved Even though he s already in hell, can he find any sort of mitigation, salvation even Yeah I m not answering that I had a good, weird, dark, sad, freaky, confusing, unsettling, challenging, disturbing read Your turn.May 21, 14 Also in my blog

    Some literature does to a tormented soul what antibiotics does to the body It can prescribed as a cure when someone needs it.Rimbaud here is a broken man after a lover has left him The reason of his descent is not clearly made but the whole poem demonstrates his tormented, confused presense and need for love Reading this I was amazed how he used such strange surrealist images to create a desperate, morbid atmosphere in which he is looking for satisfaction to come eventually Rimbaud, like ano Some literature does to a tormented soul what antibiotics does to the body It can prescribed as a cure when someone needs it.Rimbaud here is a broken man after a lover has left him The reason of his descent is not clearly made but the whole poem demonstrates his tormented, confused presense and need for love Reading this I was amazed how he used such strange surrealist images to create a desperate, morbid atmosphere in which he is looking for satisfaction to come eventually Rimbaud, like another favourite of mine Nabakov, mixes their senses to illustrate excesses of stimulation, which I ll always be a sucker for

    I don t know how to rate this In fact, I think it s beyond any rating, so my four stars don t really say anything Moreover, I have a feeling that I wasn t ready for it yet, so I ll be giving itchances in the future Like an index to my emotional growth The fact, however, that he wrote it at the age of 19 is beyond any comment All that is finished Today, I have learned to wave my hand at beauty.

    It would be impossible to get a better edition than Bulfinch Press s The pairing of Rimbaud s fiery poetry with Mapplethorpe s photographs is the perfect marriage en enfer for the demon bridegroom.

    I find Rimbaud s writing rather sophomoric and bland I wish I had read him at a much younger age.

    I know of no other translator who has captured Rimbaud s youthful voice Donald Revell is the first While there are several beautiful translations of A Season in Hell Paul Schmidt and Wyatt Mason have both produced excellent versions the voice is always that of a middle aged man, not of a boy in his late teens.With Revell s transation, we have that voice, and it is amazing to feel the energy and the freshness of this French monolith when an innocence is maintained Perhaps some of the success I know of no other translator who has captured Rimbaud s youthful voice Donald Revell is the first While there are several beautiful translations of A Season in Hell Paul Schmidt and Wyatt Mason have both produced excellent versions the voice is always that of a middle aged man, not of a boy in his late teens.With Revell s transation, we have that voice, and it is amazing to feel the energy and the freshness of this French monolith when an innocence is maintained Perhaps some of the success comes from Revell s reading of Rimbaud, seen in the illuminating Translator s Afterword, as a poet who brings paradise with him when walking through hell

    One of the most memorable pieces of writing that I have ever read Rimbaud s mind must have been a strange and wonderful place in which to exist.

    Sometimes I ll have a week when I just can t find a lighted path through life stuck choosing between activities that just don t make it worse and activities that almost definitely will.Choose to keep running, keep your health up.Choose to eat well and try to get your 7 hours.Choose to avoid sarcasm when possible.Choose not to nap in the afternoon.Choose not to wallow in beer or the like.Choose not to read A Season in Hell Other Poems or anything else that makes you think too much about where Sometimes I ll have a week when I just can t find a lighted path through life stuck choosing between activities that just don t make it worse and activities that almost definitely will.Choose to keep running, keep your health up.Choose to eat well and try to get your 7 hours.Choose to avoid sarcasm when possible.Choose not to nap in the afternoon.Choose not to wallow in beer or the like.Choose not to read A Season in Hell Other Poems or anything else that makes you think too much about where you ve been, where you re going, and the nature of reality That last one s a biggie.Eventually, all the lights come back on of their own accord and the time of dark stumbles will end
