"[Illuminations] is full of invocations to eerie, invented entities, strange beings inhabiting a utopia or possibly a dystopia. It feels as if it is set in the future. In any event it is unmistakably a book about the 'new'. Rimbaud speaks of 'the new harmony', 'the new men' and 'the new love'. The poet is often describing in precise detail a cityscape—but which city? London? Amsterdam?" Edmund White • TLS
