Présentation de l'éditeur

Arthur Rimbaud, anarchic Symbolist poet of the nineteenth century, has been the inspiration of rock singers from Bob Dylan onwards. Jim Morrison, lead singer of the Doors, captured the imagination of millions during his lifetime, and since his untimely death in 1971 he has become a cult figure. Even today his grave in Paris is one of the city's most popular places of pilgrimage. Indirectly the two were brought together by the author of this book, whose translation of Rimbaud's poem was one of Morrison's most treasured possessions. In 1968 the singer wrote to Wallace Fowlie to thank him for his work, and fourteen years later, when Fowlie first heard the music of the Doors, he recognised the influence of Rimbaud in Morrison's lyrics. Intrigued, this esteemed professor of an illustrious university began to delve further. The result is a fascinating comparison of the brilliant and shocking lives of two young men, separated by a century, who sought to stretch experience to its limits and flashed like meteors across their respective eras to ignite an entire generation. Illustrated with rare photographs of Morrison and with portraits of Rimbaud from the author's private collection, "Rimbaud and Jim Morrison" is a penetrating analysis of the affinities between European literary tradition and the rock music and youth culture of the late twentieth century. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

A wonderful book that finally recognizes Jim Morrison's poetic talent! It is neverthless regretable that the accounts of the two poets' life and work should be thus separated...The parallel is very relevant. Fowlie, with his extensive knowledge gives us an interesting reading of both poets.

HASH(0x9c4d19a8) étoiles sur 5 An Interesting Memoir Padded with Derivative Commentary 27 mai 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Wallace Fowlie, a French scholar, translator and commentator on many French poets, has written this short book on the connections between the lives and writings of Rimbaud and Morrison, two symbols of youthful, creative rebellion who lived more than a century apart. Unfortunately, while the short memoir of how Fowlie first came to connect these two figures is interesting and worthy of a short journalistic piece, the bulk of this book contains nothing more than truncated and regurgitated biographical sketches of Rimbaud and Morrison and disparate commentary on some of their writing. Fowlie, who published an English translation of Rimbaud's collected poems in 1966, first heard of Morrison when he received a letter from him in 1968 thanking him for the English translation. Morrison implied that Rimbaud was an important writer for him: "I don't read French that easily . . . I am a rock singer and your book travels around with me." Fowlie didn't know of Morrison until, many years later, he heard some of the music and lyrics of The Doors and recognized the influence of Rimbaud on the writing of Morrison. Fowlie's memoir relates how his discovery of these connections led to a series of lectures on Rimbaud and Morrison, lectures which were (not surprisingly!) received with enthusiasm and interest by his young college students at Duke and elsewhere. Fowlie's discussion of Rimbaud's poetry, in addition to being cursory, can only be understood with a copy of his poems close at hand; without reading the poems in their entirety, Fowlie's commentary is largely unintelligible. With respect to Morrison, Fowlie does nothing more than regurgitate biographical details gleaned from other authors and discuss a few of Morrison's poems. Again, understanding the discussion of the poems suffers if you don't have the texts of Morrison's poems available. While Fowlie's prose is wonderful and his brief anecdote of the way that Morrison and Rimbaud connected in Fowlie's own life interesting, the bulk of the book in unremarkable and derivative.

HASH(0x9c4d1e10) étoiles sur 5 an interesting novelty, but nothing special 5 novembre 2001
Par J from NY - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
if wallace fowlie was going to write a book about the similarities between arthur rimbaud and jim morrison, couldn't he have at the very least learned just a few things about morrison and wrote some new thoughts or little known facts about rimbaud, rather than just cutting and pasting from his old study of the surrealist legend? anyone who is even mildly acquainted with his work on the adolescent rimbaud will have at first a strange but strong sensation of deja vu while reading this book, and if they have a decent memory, will realize that most of the passages in this book were lifted from his earlier work. some people will see this as acceptable because most of the info and commentary is poignant and accurate (if not very penetrating and a tad superficial), but i find it a little disrespectful to the reader. as if we're not going to notice it when he rewrites, word by word, his previous work. it does have it's merits, and it is fairly entertaining to read his accounts of college lectures given on the two poets of youthful rebellion and the ideological similarities between the 60's counterculture and the philosophy of the surrealists, but there simply isn't enough substantial, original stuff in the book to make it truly memorable. it is worth reading, but only just.

HASH(0x9c4d1e34) étoiles sur 5 Fowlie Knowledgeable About Rimbaud, But... 25 novembre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Wallace Fowlie seems like a sweet man, but as he would admit himself, he knows very little about Jim Morrison. His book, though somewhat interesting, is ridiculously full of simplistic error on matters Morrisonian, such as his statement that "L.A. Woman" is the least-praised album ever put out by the doors (Dr. Fowlie, that would be "The Soft Parade,") and numerous other boo-boos that render many of his conclusions somewhat dubious. It's a gentle ramble, but not serious analysis; a curiosity more than an academic study.

HASH(0x9c4d1d74) étoiles sur 5 Beyond the legend of the Lizard King 12 novembre 2006
Par Nina Bennett - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Wallace Fowlie gives us a fascinating comparison of the life and writing of Jim Morrison to Rimbaud. In 1968 Fowlie, a college professor of French literature, received a letter from Jim Morrison thanking him for his translation of Rimbaud. Morrison's name was meaningless to Fowlie, who was not familiar with the music of the Doors. After a student gave him a copy of No One Here Gets Out Alive, Fowlie noticed the references to Morrison's interest in Rimbaud, and recalling the letter, he started researching Morrison's life and his writing. He discovered many instances where lyrics were obviously influenced by Rimbaud. Using the mythical Jim Morrison as lure, Fowlie made French symbolist poetry come alive with his innovative lectures. By exploring the social and political conditions leading to the powerful poetry of both writers, Fowlie perpetuates their legacy of protest and rebellion.

As a teenager in the 60s, the music of the Doors slammed into my soul. Morrison's lyrics defined many of my generation as we deciphered and discussed them for countless hours. It has been well documented that Morrison wanted to be known as a poet rather than a singer/lyricist. He seemed to view poetry as the more intellectual pursuit. He is certainly correct in his belief that poetry can bear witness to the ills of society as well as the pain of an individual. Morrison is granted the credibility he craved in Fowlie's carefully researched and richly detailed analysis. The scholarly tone makes this book a welcome addition to the bookshelf of those who believe in the transformative power of poetry and music.

HASH(0x9c4d42a0) étoiles sur 5 A clorful insight into the lives and works of two legends. 6 octobre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Wallace Fowlie, emeritus of French and Italian Literature at Duke University and author of other great works, such as, Letters Between Henry Miller and Wallace Fowlie, accomplishes two major feats in Rimbaud and Jim Morrison: Rebel As Poet. Firstly, Fowlie brings to life and familiarizes Arthur Rimbaud to wide-eyed generations who would not neccesarily read Rimbaud in school textbooks. Second, with Fowlie holding one of the longest teching records in U.S. history, he takes and elevates Jim Morrison from the cheezy facade of rock star to the noble status of serious "poet" that could be respected in the world, not only of literature, but, also, the world of academia as well.
Although you would never guess it, Wallace Fowlie was in his early eighties when writing this book. I believe it to be amazing that a man of Fowlie's caliber, history, and age would find Jim's poetry so compelling that he would work to bring Jim up to the class of poet Jim's idol, Rimbaud, belonged to and head. Maybe now students can feel free to write about James Douglas Morrison in literary classes - using Fowlie's book as a reference - without an English professor arguing that the work is not valid because Jim Morrison was a rock star not a poet.
As you will discover while reading this book, a young rock star named Jim Morrison wrote to a Mr. Wallace Fowlie thanking him for his tranlations of Rimbaud's poetry and letters, and, I do believe, if James Douglas Morrison was alive today he would write to Wallace Fowlie once again to express his sincere thanks.
