    The American poet John Ashbery presents a new translation, with the original French en face, of the great Illuminations, Rimbaud's 'crystalline jumble' of 43 prose poems. Originally a bundle of manuscript pages handed to Verlaine, the poet's former lover, and published by him in 1887, the book appeared years after Rimbaud had abandoned literature for trading in Africa. With a preface by Ashbery.
