Author: JAMIE, JAMES.
Title: Rimbaud in Java: The Lost Voyage.
Description: Singapore EDM: Editions Didier Millet, 2011. Paperback small, very good condition, drawings, colour photos centre spread, novelty cover design (rounded corners). 128 pp. A fascinating blend of biography, travelogue and fiction charting renowned French poet Arthur Rimbaud's lost voyage. In 1876, he joined the Royal Army of the Dutch Indies and sailed for Java, where he promptly deserted and fled into the jungle. In the first book devoted to Rimbaud's lost voyage to Asia, novelist and critic Jamie James reviews everything that is known about the journey - from there he imaginatively reconstructs what the poet must have seen and what he might have done, vividly recreating life in 19th-century Java along the way.
