(p.97) Chapter 4 The Drunken Inkwell – Arthur Rimbaud
Henry Miller and How He Got That Way

Katy Masuga

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter is concerned with Arthur Rimbaud, a figure in Miller's work similar to that of Doestoevsky, and looks at his renunciation of poetry to become a ‘normal’ person outside of literature. It shows Miller paralleling himself with Rimbaud as opposite sides of the same coin. The chapter identifies Rimbaud's significance for Miller, which goes beyond the biographical matches, and into their very personal and deep views on literature.

Keywords:   Arthur Rimbaud, renunciation, poetry, biographical matches, personal views, literature, parallelism
