This book doesn't add to previously known facts or thinking about Rimbaud's poetry, but sets out to emphasize Rimbaud as a gay writer, with especial emphasis on his relationship with Verlaine. Since the book is meant to be more of an introductory text than one going into the depths with M. Arthur, it presents more of the "laying of the tracks" for future studies than pretending to be such a study in itself.
Actually I found many aspects of its treatment of Verlaine more interesting than that of R
George Ilsley
A slim volume that would serve as an overview or an introduction. Some of the sentence constructions are awkward: Ivry is fond of colons, which imparts an old-school flavour to the text. The result is a kind of selective biography, where Ivry discusses those topics which interest him, and skims over the rest.
I feel absolutely neutral on this biography. Is Rimbaud going to become more interesting? It seems I should love him but he never makes me go more than "eh."
