A brilliant French poet born in 1854 who wrote his best known works in his late teens before giving up writing at the age of 21, due to the end of a love affair with poet Paul Verlain. Rimbaud died in 1891 at the age of 37, soon after the amputation of his right leg. He is best know for his poem The Drunken Boat, written at the age of 17.
"Idle youth, enslaved to everything; by being too sensitive I have wasted my life."
Arthur Rimbaud
