I am relying on my memory here, but according to an account I read Rimbaud was 
in Paris at the time of the Commune.  He was 17 and would have been affected by 
it in some way.
Interesting to contrast that with later joining the Dutch Colonial Army  
(granted he deserted within months) and some years after that running guns into 
North-East Africa.
