Jean Nicolas Arthur Rimbaud (20 October 1854 – 10 November 1891) was a French poet who is known for his
influence on modern literature and arts, which prefigured surrealism. Born in Charleville-Mézières, he started
writing at a very young age and was a prodigious student, but abandoned his formal education in his teenage years
to run away from home amidst the Franco-Prussian War.After running away, during his late adolescence and early
adulthood, he began the bulk of his literary output, but completely stopped writing at the age of 21, after
assembling one of his major works, Illuminations.
