Rimbaud, the Adventure, the Poetry


Pierre Brunel, Professor at the Sorbonne, discusses several aspects of Rimbaud: the poet of childhood (his verse-poems are studied in the classroom), the adventure and mysteries of his text, Rimbaud the letter writer and Rimbaud the journalist (particularly during his stay in Africa). Various documents and scenes shot in Charleville and Africa contribute to our understanding of this astonishingly modern poet, the idol of writers, painters...and rockers!
