(026312) Borer, Alain. Rimbaud In Abyssinia. New York: William Morrow And Company, 1984. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo. 323 pages. Fine in Near Fine DJ. Rimbaud (1854-1891) was a French poet and adventurer. By age 16 he wrote violent, blasphemous poems, and he formulated an aesthetic doctrine stating that a poet must become a seer, break down the restraints and controls on personality, and thus become the instrument for the voice of the eternal. He was invited to Paris by Paul Verlaine, with whom he had a homosexual relationship and engaged in a wild and dissipated life. Rimbaud eventually abandoned literature and from 1875 led an international vagabond life as a merchant and trader, mainly in Ethiopia. ISBN: 0688075940 (Rimbaud, Arthur, Poets, Ethiopia)
