Qui veut réinventer l’amour? Who wants to reinvent love?
A young French man.
A revolutionary poet, who from age 16 to 19, for ever changed the face of poetry.
Arthur Rimbaud was born in 1854 in a little village of north-eastern France.
A life of passion. A life of pain, search, escape, and sometimes violence, especially when dealing with his fellow poet and lover, Paul Verlaine.
Although not socially accepted, homosexuality in 19th century France, was not illegal. Indeed, in 1791, France became the first European country to annul its antisodomy laws. Homosexuality was more tolerated in Paris, for both men and women, than anywhere else.
Especially in the literary, artistic, creative world. Not a coincidence if Oscar Wilde chose to come live his last three years in Paris, on rue des Beaux-Arts.
But back to Arthur Rimbaud. He believed “la poésie sauvra le monde de la médiocrité” (poetry will save the world from mediocrity) but felt discouraged only a few years later, at age 21.
After one of their many passionate, violent, drunken arguments while living in London, Paul Verlaine can no longer take his lover’s abusive words and leaves for Brussels. Rimbaud is immediately desperate and full of regrets.
He sends him the below letter. See if you can understand it!
“Reviens, reviens, cher ami, seul ami, reviens. Je te jure que je serai bon. Si j’étais maussade avec toi, c’est une plaisanterie où je me suis entêté, je m’en repens plus qu’on ne peut dire. Reviens, ce sera bien oublié. Quel malheur que tu aies cru à cette plaisanterie. Voilà deux jours que je ne cesse de pleurer. Reviens. Sois courageux, cher ami. Rien n’est perdu. Tu n’as qu’à refaire le voyage. Nous revivrons ici bien courageusement, patiemment. Ah ! je t’en supplie. C’est ton bien, d’ailleurs. Reviens, tu retrouveras toutes tes affaires. J’espère que tu sais bien à présent qu’il n’y avait rien de vrai dans notre discussion, l’affreux moment ! Mais toi, quand je te faisais signe de quitter le bateau, pourquoi ne venais-tu pas. Nous avons vécu deux ans ensemble pour arriver à cette heure là ! Que vas-tu faire ! Si tu ne veux pas revenir ici, veux-tu que j’aille te retrouver où tu es ?
Oui c’est moi qui ai eu tort.
Oh tu ne m’oublieras pas, dis ?
Non tu ne peux pas m’oublier.
Moi je t’ai toujours là.
Dis, réponds à ton ami, est-ce que nous ne devons plus vivre ensemble ? Sois courageux. Réponds-moi vite. Je ne puis rester ici plus longtemps. N’écoute que ton bon coeur.
Vite, dis si je dois te rejoindre.
à toi toute la vie.
Although Verlaine was a great poet, Rimbaud was a genius. Verlaine always followed him, abandoning his wife & child and his bourgeois safe life for Rimbaud, over and over again. Rimbaud was the voice of the Future and his greatest admirer Verlaine knew it.

Possessed by a Islamic genie perhaps. He was a dumb intellectual. Women would have a right to say that they do not like sociopathic men who envy their creativity. Women have a right to be unhappy with a system that marginalizes any precisely. A system of marriage that puts her subordinate and Property. Each individual should be judged on how to handle this. When can we overgeneralize an entire group of people based on one.
Who are the 6 sociopaths trying to reinvent this “.
Many others said that he was not gay but had many lovers including a woman. Most of these “on the Internet in the movie are not philosophical but footnotes about his individual personal situations. Darn the propaganda of the gay agenda. Go against women or make false correlations and go off of a Pacific group that leads to your demise you won’t demise you’re an idiot . A vain failing bigot
So say that he didn’t say it but the demon who spoke to him did. They are demons that for no reason other than they cannot live in our human world hate on human beings.
He was a corn artist who would pretend to be what was ever fashionable or profitable at the time
He also said there would be a time when a woman’s bondage would be released and she will be poet and know the end. However we almost recognize that woman has already been a poet and known the unknown. She is the word made flesh she is the image of the. She has created sciences and arts and is only capable bringing the 4th by. She doesn’t need the institution of entertainment or artistry. Woman invented poetry.
