"Sinopsis" puede pertenecer a otra edición de este libro.
This book brings together two of the most notorious artistic rebels of their respective eras, Arthur Rimbaud (1854-1891) and Robert Mapplethorpe. Rimbaud wrote most of his work as a teenager, then renounced poetry to pursue an adventurous but unprofitable career as a soldier, coffee trader, and gun runner. The controversial and highly regarded photographer Robert Mapplethorpe earned acclaim during the late 1980s for his nudes, portraits, and still lifes. Books with Bulfinch are: Robert Mapplethorpe (1988), Some Women (1989) and Flowers (1990). Paul Schmidt has translated the complete works of Rimbaud as well as selected works of Chekhov, Pushkin and other Russian authors.Language Notes:

Descripción Bulfinch Press, New York, New York, U.S.A., 1997. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. Estado de la sobrecubierta: No DJ as Issued. Robert Mapplethorpe Photos Ilustrador. 1st Edition Thus. NEW! Fn First Edition HC copy, without DJ as issued, apparently unused. 95 pp, illustrated in black/white. Text in French and English. Written by Arthur Rimbaud at age eighteen in the wake of his tempestuous affair with fellow poet Paul Verlaine, A Season in Hell has been a touchstone for anguished poets, artists, and lovers for more than a century. Imbued with a hallucinatory intensity, this confessional prose poem is an account of a hellish journey beyond the bounds of society -- and the attempt to find a way back. Based on an edition first published by Limited Editions Club in 1986, this stunning volume presents Rimbaud's poem in the original French and in English translation -- and opens each of the poem's eight sections with a dazzling photograph by Robert Mapplethorpe that brilliantly complements the poem's shifting moods. These images by our most notorious contemporary photographer underline the striking modernity of Rimbaud's great work -- and make this a perfect gift for friends, lovers, and fans of either artist.
