The Spiritual Hunt, or the fake Arthur Rimbaud manuscript

In May 1949, the French journal Combat announced the publication by Mercure de France of a previously unseen manuscript by Rimbaud – The Spiritual Hunt. The announcement caused widespread hysteria in the Parisian literary district of Saint-Germain-Des-Près. But writer André Breton was the first to denounce people’s gullibility. They had been the naive victims of a calculated revenge.
