Written by Rimbaud at the age of 16, in the heart of the period of social experimentation and egalitarianism that was the Commune, The Letters of the Seer constitute the most revolutionary document of the modern poetry. In these letters addressed to his teacher Georges Izambard and to the poet Paul Démeny, Rimbaud already states the founding principles of his work. The literary manifesto of a man who gave a form to the formlessness and made the poetic word a powerful instrument of liberation.

L’auteur

Precocious literary genius, Arthur Rimbaud (1854-1891) had a destiny as brief as dazzling, just like his work, whose inventiveness and poetic density make it one of the references of the 19th century literature. A mystical rebel, a visionary explorer, the man with soles of wind metamorphosed the poetic language and made his words essential, then and always.

The edition

Letters selected and presented Lorenzo Flabbi.

Strong points

A vertigo of words, a condensed poetic theory.

Visionary, radical and essential letters.

The prelude to Illuminations and A Season in Hell.
