Terence Rogers Tiller died on 24 December 1987.
Tiller had also translated A season in hell by Arthur Rimbaud, and Four of a kind by Paul Verlaine.
The French poet Jean Nicolas Arthur Rimbaud was born in Charleville, Ardennes, on 20 October 1854. He produced his works while still in his late teens, Victor Hugo describing him at the time as 'an infant Shakespeare', and he had given up creative writing altogether before the age of 20. As part of the decadent movement, Rimbaud influenced modern literature, music, and arts, and prefigured surrealism. He was known to have been a libertine and a restless soul, traveling extensively on three continents before his death.
Jean Nicolas Arthur Rimbaud died from cancer just a few days after his 37th birthday on 10 November 1891.
Paul-Marie Verlaine, born in Metz on 30 March 1844, was a French poet associated with the Symbolist movement. He is considered one of the greatest representatives of the fin de siecle in international and French poetry. He died in Paris on 8 January 1896.
