Jacket  14 logo (bluewaves)
Fantin-Latour - Coin de Table - 1872

Illustration, left: detail from Le Coin de la Table (sometimes titled ‘Un coin de la table’), 1872, by Henri Fantin-Latour (1836–1904). Verlaine and Rimbaud are seated front left.
      Other famous poets of the time who had been asked to sit were so angry when they found that Rimbaud had been asked to join them that they refused to take part.
     Even the kind and gentle Albert Mérat (as Starkie calls him) declined, saying that he did not wish to go down to posterity in the company with that young hooligan Arthur Rimbaud. The vase of flowers on the right substituted for him; nonentities took the places of others — standing: E. Bonnier, Émile Blémont, Jean Aicard — sitting: Verlaine, Rimbaud, Léon Valade, Ernest d’Hervilly, Camille Pelletan. You can see the original in the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, where the label for the picture identifies Arthur Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine by their surnames only, as I have done here; the others are given both their first and second names in order to identify them to an uncaring posterity. Moral: don’t be snippy!
