Rimbaud, Arthur - I ended by finding something sacred in the disorder of my mind
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Arthur Symons – The Symbolist Movement in Literature
I flattered myself that I had invented a poetic language accessible, one day or another, to every shade of meaning. I reserved to myself the right of translation ...
I accustomed myself to simple hallucination: I saw, quite frankly, a mosque in place of a factory, a school of drums kept by the angels, post-chaises on the roads of heaven, a drawing-room at the bottom of a lake; monsters, mysteries; the title of a vaudeville raised up horrors before me.
Then I explained my magical sophisms by the hallucination of words! I ended by finding something sacred in the disorder of my mind.
