Arthur Rimbaud

Bon Anniversaire, Arthur Rimbaud:

"Le Prince et le Genie s'aneantirent probablement dans la sante essentielle. Comment n'auraient-ils pas pu en mourir?"

"The Prince and the Genie annihilated each other probably in essential health. How could they have helped dying of it."


"La musique savante manque a notre desir."

"There is no sovereign music for our desire."

from "Illuminations"

by Jean-Arthur Nicolas Rimbaud

Oct. 20, 1854
