Rimbaud the double life of a rebel 2008 rimbaud was a childhood hero of mine and it was interesting to revisit him for this short biography i found him less heroic as a person and maybe even more interesting as a writer. There have been several good biographies of rimbaud and the latest edmund whites rimbaud the double life of a rebel gives the tale new flesh in jaunty likable prose white begins by making recourse to his own first encounter of the author when i was sixteen in 1956 i discovered rimbaud. White makes the significance of his visionary poetry shimmer in crystalline explications of his work says robert collins
