Jean Nicolas Arthur Rimbaud (pronounced /ˈræmboʊ/; or in French IPA: [aʁtyʁ ʁɛ̃ˈbo]) (October 20, 1854 – November 10, 1891) was a French poet, born in Charleville. His influence on modern literature, music and art has been enduring and pervasive. He produced his best known works while still in his late teens — Victor Hugo described him at the time as “an enfant Shakespeare” — and gave up creative writing altogether before he reached 21. He remained a prolific letter-writer all his life. Rimbaud was a restless soul, travelling extensively in three continents before his premature death from cancer less than a month after his 37th birthday.
