  • The Day of Fire [Suggested by the Life of Arthur Rimbaud] – James Ullman – First Edition 1959

    The Day of Fire [Suggested by the Life of Arthur Rimbaud] – James Ullman – First Edition 1959

    First Edition published by Collins, London in 1959. Octavo, 638 pages. A little sign of age, dust jacket chipped at head, still a very good copy of a special book.

    The author had been working on this book for a number of years and provides a nice foreword about Rimbaud, He thanks New Directions for quotes from their “A Season in Hell”, possibly Voyager’s favourite book.

    No wonder the author invested so much time, Arthur Rimbaud was an extraordinary individual and apart from his poetry and writing led an extraordinary life, not always on the right side of the law.

    Based on the life of Arthur Rimbaud and a colourful life that was.
