Book News
Having written biographies of several other French writers, Robb examines the life of poet Arthur Rimbaud (1854-91). He characterizes him as a bourgeois-baiting visionary, a re-inventor of language and perception, and a breaker of all taboos whose known crimes is longer than his list of published poems.
