The day on fire; a novel suggested by the life of Arthur Rimbaud by James Ramsey Ullman( Book )

17 editions published between 1958 and 2016 in English and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By the age of fifteen, Arthur Rimbaud was already one of the most brilliant poets of his time. And for the next four years - and four only - Rimbaud (the Claude Morel of this book) was simultaneously a writer of genius, a visionary idealist, and a deliberate wallower in gutters of depravity perhaps unmatched in all of human experience. But at the age of nineteen, he was through forever with both writing and debauchery, and at this point, he all but vanished, spending most of his remaining years as a vagabond wanderer through Europe and Africa. In the epic The Day on Fire (1958), a masterwork of biographical fiction, James Ramsey Ullman retraces the steps of Rimbaud's life from his rebellious youth in a dull provincial town to his teenage years as a homosexual, drunkard and drug addict in Paris, and his later years, wandering the desert in search of some elusive beauty or truth. As Ullman writes in his Foreword, "The truth, the inward core, of Rimbaud's life, is a truth for all times, as long as each of us, all of us, have our nights alone and our days on fire, our seasons in hell and our hope of heaven."

"This book makes no pretence of being an exhaustive record of mountaineering activity. Neither is it an encylcopedia of the sport nor a manual of technique. What this book does attempt is to present in broad outline the history of the relationship between mountains and men, to re-tell some of the great climbing stories of the past two centuries in terms of interest to the general American reader, and to indicate not only what men have done in the mountains, but what they have sought and found there as well."--The author's forword
