Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0195017609, Paperback)Written by Rimbaud at the age of 18 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.

"From Dante's Inferno to Sartre's No Exit, writers have been fascinated by visions of damnation. Within that rich literature of suffering, Arthur Rimbaud's A Season in Hell - written when the poet was nineteen - provides an astonishing example of the grapple with self. As a companion to Rimbaud's journey, readers could have no better guide than Wyatt Mason. Mason's new version of A Season in Hell renders the music and mystery of Rimbaud's tale of Hell on Earth." "This bilingual edition includes maps, a helpful chronology of Rimbaud's life, and the unfinished suite of prose poems, Illuminations. With A Season in Hell, they cement Rimbaud's reputation as one of the foremost, and most influential, writers in French literature."--BOOK JACKET.
