The Photography of Poet Arthur Rimbaud (1883)


"Arthur Rimbaud, far-seeing prodigy, 'has been memorialized in song and story as few in history,' writes Wyatt Mason in an introduction to the poet’s complete works; 'the thumbnail of his legend has proved irresistible.' The poet, we often hear, ended his brief but brilliant literary career when he ran off to the Horn of Africa and became a gunrunner… or some other sort of adventurous outlaw character many miles removed, it seems, from the intense symbolist hero of Illuminations and A Season in Hell. ..."

gunrunner? perhaps, more probably - slaver.
