Translated, edited and with an Introduction by Wyatt Mason

The definitive translation for our time.
Edward Hirsch

From Dantes Inferno to Sartres No Exit, writers have been fascinated by visions of damnation. Within that rich literature of suffering, Arthur Rimbauds A Season in Hellwritten when the poet was nineteenprovides an astonishing example of the grapple with self.

As a companion to Rimbauds journey, readers could have no better guide than Wyatt Mason. One of our most talented young translators and critics, Masons new version of A Season in Hell renders the music and mystery of Rimbauds tale of Hell on Earth with exceptional finesse and power.

This bilingual edition includes maps, a helpful chronology of Rimbauds life, and the unfinished suite of prose poems, Illuminations. With A Season in Hell, they cement Rimbauds reputation as one of the foremost, and most influential, writers in French literature.
