From a Season in Hell to the Barricades: Arthur Rimbaud and the Paris Commune of 1871

Sebastian Hayes argues that literary prodigy, Arthur Rimbaud was in some sense a socialist writer.


Apart from being a literary prodigy, the poet Aurthur Rimbaud is known above all else as a rebel. But was he in any sense a socialist writer?

Sebastian Hayes argues that he definitely was and that through his involvement with the Paris Commune Rimbaud was thoroughly immersed in radical political thought and revolutionary action.

In France, as was once said, "we don't do reforms - only revolutions" and Rimbaud's short but brilliant life appears to fully justify the claim.
