About the book:

Written by Arthur Rimbaud at age eighteen in the wake of his tempestuous affair with fellow poet Paul Verlaine, A Season in Hell has been a touchstone for anguished poets, artists, and lovers for more than a century. Imbued with a hallucinatory intensity, this confessional prose poem is an account of a hellish journey beyond the bounds of society -- and the attempt to find a way back.

Based on an edition first published by Limited Editions Club in 1986, this stunning volume presents Rimbaud's poem in the original French and in English translation -- and opens each of the poem's eight sections with a dazzling photograph by Robert Mapplethorpe that brilliantly complements the poem's shifting moods. These images by our most notorious contemporary photographer underline the striking modernity of Rimbaud's great work -- and make this a perfect gift for friends, lovers, and fans of either artist.
