Video of “The Drunken Boat” by Arthur Rimbaud

Another video adaptation of one of my poetry comics, created by James Avis. This time it’s the comics version of Arthur Rimbaud’s “Le bateau ivre,” which I created nearly a decade ago now. The reading of the poem, in English translation, is by the American actor Michael C. Gwynne. I would definitely adapt this wonderful poem very differently today, but I do feel there are some success elements, mostly in the little details, which James Avis’s video brings out very well.
