Poetry Circle: Arthur Rimbaud
7:00 PM

The French poet Arthur Rimbaud (1854–1891) occupies a truly unique place in world literature. During a five-year period he wrote an amazing variety of poems. As an adolescent, he showed complete mastery over strict forms, and he also wrote prose poems in which he cast out all the rules. His virtuosity greatly impressed his contemporaries, and yet, at the age of twenty, he renounced poetry and lived the life of a restless wanderer, oblivious to the fame his poems were gaining. After his death at the age of thirty-seven, his legend emerged, that of a young rebellious genius who astounded everyone with his masterpieces, and then just as unexpectedly left the scene. Registration suggested.
