From Arthur to Zanzibar/Philippe Lopparelli


”Zanzibar”. During the last ten years of his life, Arthur Rimbaud, who was exiled between Aden and Harar, never stopped dreaming of this idyllic land. He saw the island in a magical light as ”somewhere better, a little further”, he had searched for in vain all his life. However, Rimbaud never lay a foot on Zanzibar.
This series is a tribute to this unfulfilled existential quest, a journey into the heart of Rimbaud’s eternity, where the sea merges with the sun.
