Like a Rolling Stone

Sunday 26 March 2006 16:30-17:00 (Radio 4 FM)

Repeated: Saturday 1 April 2006 23:30-0:00 (Radio 4 FM)


Jeremy Harding traces the extraordinary life and legacy of the French poet Rimbaud (born 150 years ago) and asks how his brief poetic career and slender body of work made him an icon of revolt for a much later generation of rock and roll stars.

Jim Morrison, Bob Dylan, Patti Smith, Jimi Hendrix, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, John Lennon, David Bowie and The Rolling Stones all cited the poetry and life of Arthur Rimbaud as a key touchstone for their thinking and their work.
