From the cover: “Arthur Rimbaud was one of the world’s most enigmatic and colourful vagabonds. Born in the Ardennes in 1854, he became, early in life, a poet of genius and a visionary idealist; he also deliberately wallowed in the gutters of depravity to an extent unmatched in all human experience. Later, he gave up both writing and debauchery to become a vagabond wanderer through Europe and Asia. In the last twelve years of his life he was a trader, explorer, gunrunner (and almost certainly slave trader) along the Red Sea Coasts and in the northeast corner of Africa then known as Abyssinia.
