This volume explores how the figure of the body in Arthur Rimbaud's poetry points to a wider field of relations linking Rimbaud to poets such as Banville, Baudelaire, Hugo, and Verlaine, and of poetry to revolutionary history and politics. Through both close readings of select texts and careful historical and critical contextualization, it shows how the question of embodiment appears-often literally-as a kind of gap in a text, an aperture through which poems enter into contact with-and complicate-history and a larger body of other texts, ultimately pointing to the body as the key figure for how poetry 'matters' in times of catastrophic historical violence and revolution.
