    When considering the importance of literature from the 19 th century based on its value as a precursor of 20 th century values, Arthur Rimbaud's poem The Drunken Boat stands out. His symbolist contemporaries all made significant contributions through their development of the symbol as a means to evoke particular emotions and their progression of language.
