What do Patti Smith and Arthur Rimbaud have in common

What do Patti Smith and Arthur Rimbaud have in common ? They both owned the same house in France. The American singer and author recently purchased the partially restored home in Roche near the Belgian border with the intention of completing the reconstruction of the building. The stone house dates from the 18th century and has been in poor condition for decades, although it has undergone some renovation. Considering Smith’s lifelong devotion to the work of the 19th century poet, it’s no surprise that she’s committed to saving the house where he wrote his seminal poem A Season in Hell.
