Rimbaud and the New Inquisition

“Traditions in literature are of course the last bloody yard fought for on the battlefield in the war between writers of a mediocre talent and those of a convulsively dull one. And Rimbaud seems to have learned at a ferocious pace that these people are beyond persuading and are best left to swing themselves from the gallows of their forever fixed mind-states.”

(excerpt from “Rimbaud and the New Inquisition” by Paul Stubbs,

in The Black Herald 2)
