  3. 3. Can you put the different parts of Verlaine’s life in the right order? Born in Metz, he began writing poetry at an early age. His first published collection was Poèmes Saturniens (1866) when he was 22.. Verlaine's last years saw his descent into drug addiction, alcoholism, and poverty. He lived in slums and public hospitals, and spent his days drinking absinthe in Paris cafes. Verlaine then meets the poet Rimbaud who will have a great impact on him. In July 1873 in a drunken, jealous rage, he fired two shots with a pistol at Rimbaud, wounding his left wrist, though not seriously injuring the poet. As an indirect result of this incident, Verlaine was arrested and imprisoned. Following his release from prison, Verlaine travelled to England, where he worked for some years as a teacher and produced another successful collection, Sagesse . He died in Paris at the age of 51 on 8 January 1896.
