In 1874, aged 20, the visionary poet Arthur Rimbaud abandoned poetry and left France for Africa. He settled in Ethiopia and became a trader in coffee, guns and hides, and toyed with the idea of trading in saves. Slave Trades is Ari Sitas' panoramic poem in which he attempts to reconstruct Arthur Rimbaud's Ethiopian years .
