Categorization is odious. There is tremendous overlap among genres. These pigeonholes are offered only as a convenience.

Arthur Rimbaud has been described as a comet in the sky of the French poetry. The most striking thing is that "A Season in Hell", according to me (and some otheres) the most beautiful of French poems, was written by a teenager, that rejected literature when he became an adult.
The violence and the intensity of his words go beyond imagination. Reading them will give you the impression that you are dancing in the flames of a burning book, and that heat is everywhere.
