The Drunken Sailor : The Life of the Poet Arthur Rimbaud in His Own Words

Hayes, Nick£20.00

The Drunken Sailortraces the life of Arthur Rimbaud: poet, surrealist, libertine and gun runner. In dazzling artwork, Nick Hayes follows Rimbaud from his youth in Ardennes to the poetry salons of Paris, from the absinthe-glazed passion of his relationship with Verlaine to his flight into the jungles of Indonesia and the deserts of Yemen and Egypt. Told entirely in Rimbaud's own words, from a new translation of Le bateau ivre, The Drunken Sailor confirms Nick Hayes' place as one of the most talented graphic novelists at work today.
