About the Screenplay:

RARE BOOK, a very limited number of copies are available.

A screenplay set in Paris in the late 1800s and featuring two celebrated poets. Paul Verlaine is a volatile alcoholic torn between his lovely yet conventional wife and the seductive and brilliant Arthur Rimbaud, whose life and poetry is fuelled by an insatiable hunger for intense experience.

Set in Paris in the late 1800s, Total Eclipse is the story of Arthur Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine, two of France's greatest poets. Verlaine is a volatile alcoholic torn between his lovely yet conventional wife and the seductive, dangerous and brilliant Rimbaud, a young poet whose life and work is fuelled by an insatiable hunger for intense experience, unbounded by rules or consequences. Total Eclipse is the audacious, demanding and provocative story of a volatile romantic triangle and the lives it consumes. This screenplay is based on Christopher Hampton's highly successful stage play, originally written in 1967.

Christopher Hampton is a playwright, screenwriter, director, producer, and a consummate translator and adaptor of novels. Born in 1946 in Portugal, he spent his childhood in Aden, Egypt and Zanzibar, then studied French and German at Oxford University. He was the youngest writer ever to have a play staged in the West End, and in the late 1960s, was resident dramatist at the Royal Court Theatre.
