The year 1870 was the Terrible Year for France. The country was filled with rumors of war. The date of the wedding had been set for the month of August, but before it took place hostilities had already begun. With what disaster and defeat! With MacMahon in full flight and the Prussians advancing on Paris, amid the noise of regiments defiling along the boulevards, the nuptials were celebrated at the church of Notre Dame de Cligmancourt. Among those present was Louise Michel, then a schoolmistress at Montmartre.
This singular genius was born at Charleville, France, in 1854, and at the time of his meeting with Verlaine was a lad of seventeen. He was precocious, and as a schoolboy had composed a number of bizarre poems. The Poèmes Saturniens having come to his notice, he wrote the author a flattering letter, and the impressionable Verlaine invited him to visit Paris. Paul and his wife were still living with the latter's parents, and the introduction of Rimbaud into their home was a fresh cause of discord.
