A new translation of the groundbreaking book by Arthur Rimbaud. A Season in Hell was Rimbaud’s first book, brilliantly written when he was only 18. MM Williams, an accomplished poet who is highly familiar with Rimbaud’s work, masterfully presents a faithful and delightful translation that is true in tone and form to the original work. This is the book in which the statement, “one must be absolutely modern” was made. It is a foundational book for modern poetry, and has inspired generations of writers, artists and songwriters.
