Auteur: Rimbaud, Penny
Titel: This Crippled Flesh
Sub titel: A Book of Philosophy and Filth
The great value of Rimbaud's work is that its meaning grows with time; his books may be difficult to read, but the effects are lifelong. They are, in short, demanding. Fitting into the realms of escapist entertainment, lesser works are simply read and then forgotten. `This Crippled Flesh' is genuinely radical literature which will take some readers to places they would rather not go - which is the very purpose of real literature - how else can anything truly change? "Following a series of extended dialogues with Romanian-born philosopher E.M. Cioran, it dawned on me that within every great writer there abides a wanker. It was this chain of thought which eventually led me to write `This Crippled Flesh'."
