The English Romantic poet Lord Byron was by one assessment mad , bad & dangerous to know . Rimbaud was all that & more . Ancestor to Surrealism . Seeker of enlightenment through derangement of the senses .Destabiliser of language & poetic form . An arsehole , frequently .
By the age of 21 he’d written poetry still ranked among the greatest in French . It’s both visionary & vicious .Things are shit . Arthur rubs your nose in it .
