characters Rimbaud A Biography 107 Unknown beyond the avant garde at the time of his death Arthur Rimbaud 1854 1891 has been one of the most destructive and liberating influences on twentieth century c. There will never be a single biography that does Rimbaud total justice and that s as it should be being the mystery man he was Rimbaud lived his entire life on the edge be it the edge of meaning or the edge of civilization and civilized behavior and because of this he himself didn t have the time or desire for looking back or specifying in retrospect what he was up to He was always riding the wave of the Present Tense or even ahead of it in the never attained Future as long as he lived full of contradictions only to those who wanted to figure him outRobb presents Rimbaud and his 19th c in a very earthy gritty smelly fecal lice infested way via a prose that is itself kind of coarse and craggy He doesn t have much patience with the angelic Rimbaud all wrapped up in metaphysical transcendence and arcane possibly occult theories His Rimbaud is a much bigger drinker drug user and buggeree than I previously thought and a vile prankster jerking off in his housemate s glass of milk poisoning dogs shitting on a table during a party and running his hands through it etc But his Rimbaud is also a much better businessman with an iron core of practicality and shrewdnessHis Rimbaud even through his later miseries was a supremely detached individual someone whose youthful pronouncement I is another was a precept he carried with him throughout his life so that even while mired in his most pessimistic bitterness after losing his leg was still able to view himself with detachment and maintain an extremely cynical sense of humorThis is as complete a biography as one could want enriched by scholarship and a real feel for the times and places and free of the Rimbaud worship I ve read in other accounts but Robb s Rimbaud is not my Rimbaud which is how it should be because in many ways Rimbaud will forever be an at least partially closed book Some of us will be puzzling over him forever
