About the Author: Arthur Rimbaud

French poet and adventurer, who stopped writing verse at the age of 19, and who became, after his early death an inextricable myth in French gay life. Rimbaud's poetry, partially written in free verse, is characterized by dramatic and imaginative vision. "I say that one must be a visionary - that one must make oneself a VISIONARY." His works are among the most original in the Symbolist movement. Rimbaud's best-known work, LE BÂTEAU IVRE (The Drunken Boat), appeared in 1871. In the poem, he sent a toy boat on a journey, an allegory for a spiritual quest.

It is found again.
What? Eternity.
It is the sea
Gone with the sun.

(from 'L'Éternite', 1872)
Arthur Rimbaud was born in Charleville, France, as the son of Fréderic Rimbaud, a career soldier, and Marie-Catherine-Vitale Cuif, an unsentimental matriarch. Rimbaud's father left the family, and from the age of six, young Arthur was raised by his strictly religious mother. Rimbaud was educated in a provincial school until the age of fifteen. He was an outstanding student but his behavior was considered provocative. After publishing his first poem, in 1870, at the age of 16, Rimbaud wandered through northern France and Belgium, and was returned to his home in Paris by police.

Cartas de Adén y Harar es una recopilación de las cartas que Rimbaud escribió a su madre y a su hermana mientras trabajaba o traficaba, intentado convertirse en millonario, en la antigua Abisinia y en Arabia. Unas cartas que nos muestran a una persona completamente alejada de la sensibilidad que, a través de su poesía, podemos intuir. Rimbaud, siempre fue un burgués que abrazó las más variopintas posiciones desde las más revolucionarias a las nihilistas, en busca de algo que nunca supo definir. Su relación con Paul Verlain terminó afectando gravemente su carrera literaria si bien, fue el propio Verlain quien reivindicó la figura de Rimbaud y publicó sus poemas.

Estas cartas pertenecen a una época de su vida en la que su vocación literaria estaba totalmente aparcada. Sin embargo, pese a la frialdad y la poca voluntad comunicativa de algunas de ellas, hay que reconocer que entre esa correspondencia mantenida, puede encontrarse pasajes que destilan un total desasosiego ante la situación de penuria económica y sequía intelectual por la que atraviesa y cuyo único objetivo es conseguir el dinero suficiente para volver a Francia, retirarse, casarse y tener un hijo. Son especialmente dramáticas las cartas que, una vez enfermo, remite a su hermana Isabel.
