"This may be the most beautiful book in the world, lighted from within and somehow embodying all forms of literature." —Susan Salter Reynolds, Los Angeles Times

The modernist masterpiece that is Illuminations, Arthur Rimbaud’s collection of prose poems, has been given new life with the publication of John Ashbery’s “dazzling” (The Economist) new translation, widely hailed as one of the literary events of 2012. Presented with French text in parallel and a preface by its translator, Ashbery’s rendering powerfully evokes the glittering, kaleidoscopic beauty of the original.

Paperback, 176 pages.
