A Season in Hell and The Illuminations


Translated by Enid Rhodes Peschel, A season in hell (Une Saison en Enfer), combines autobiography, with self appraisal, vision, and hallucination. It reflects Rimbaud’s tortures in trying to be a voyant. The 42 poems in the Illuminations (les Illumnations), kaleidoscopic evocations of the universe in continual evolution, are further evidence of his attempts to reach this transcendent state.
