Quote: “A poet makes himself a visionary” Rimbaud

snippet of poetry by me (Dave Olson) for illustrative & amusement purposes 

“A poet makes himself a visionary through a long, boundless, and systematized disorganization of all the senses. All forms of love, of suffering, of madness; he searches himself, he exhausts within himself all poisons, and preserves their quintessences. Unspeakable torment, where he will need the greatest faith, a superhuman strength, where he becomes all men the great invalid, the great criminal, the great accursed–and the Supreme Scientist! For he attains the unknown! “

Arthur Rimbaud
