"Thought does not always take a theoretical form. Verlaine's metrical machines are as intellectually satisfying as philosophical propositions. He never wrote a bad line of verse...The harmonious mangling of language, the little twinges of dislocated rhyme and metre might also appeal to a sense of savagery, just as they appealed to Rimbaud."
Graham Robb, Rimbaud (2000)
