Arthur Rimbaud Documentary

It’s the life of the great French poet, Arthur Rimbaud, in a 10 minute slideshow. The video traces the arc of Rimbaud’s short life (1854–1891), stitching together images from 19th century France, photos taken by Rimbaud himself, and manuscripts scribbled by the poet. In the background, Joan Baez reads lines from Rimbaud’s famous collection,Illuminations, which appears in the Poetry section of our Free Audio Books collection. Project Gutenberg also makes his complete works available in French. Download the free e-text right here.
