The Drunken Boat

But I’ve seen the stars strung out, in archipelagos!
Islands whose delirious skies are open for me to roam –
On these fathomless nights, do you sleep in exile
You countless golden birds, you future Conqueror?

A new translation by Geoff Sawers of Rimbaud’s most famous and visionary poems, strikingly illustrated by Peter Hay and with an afterword by poet, Jeremy Reed.

“This is…Rimbaud shaken up. Good poems are facelifted by being regularly updated through translation and Geoff Sawers has provided the necessary tucks in his translations of Rimbaud’s driving inner journey to keep the poem distinctly modern and flash with its brilliant visual imagery.” ~ Jeremy Reed
