Quote of the Day


"It consists mainly of early-19th-century terraced houses, in one of which lodged the young French poets Arthur Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine in May–July 1873. Rimbaud’s prose poem Une Saison en Enfer was published in the same year; the title refers to his past, not to a bad summer in CAMDEN TOWN."

From "The London Encyclopaedia". A fantastic book.
