Rimbaud month

A visit to Roche, and the farmhouse land
112

Below is the house rebuilt after the original was bombed in World War I. It is the land of Rimbaud’s mother. Where he wrote the main body of A Season in Hell. Where he often returned to recuperate after hard travel. Where he spent his last autumn as an amputee and truly suffered. I can’t add the little land video, I will do it for the next post. This is just a starting point. Next will be family background and a glimpse of the poet child.
