Andre Breton by Andre Breton

Book Description

Founder of the Surrealist movement, Andre Breton has also come to be recognized as one of the twentieth century's most innovative and influential poets. The inaugural volume in the Poets for the Millennium series, Andre Breton offers the most comprehensive selection available in English of Breton's poetry, along with a selection of his major prose writings. The translations, a number of which are published here for the first time, are by some of the most notable poets in our language, including David Antin, Paul Auster, Samuel Beckett, Michael Benedikt, Robert Duncan, David Gascoyne, and Charles Simic. This volume also includes an extensive biographical and thematic introduction by Mark Polizzotti, which sets the poems in the context of Breton's life and overall career.

Books By Author Andre Breton

Anthology of Black Humour by Andre Breton Anthology of Black Humour, Paperback (February 2009)

Presents a definitive statement on l'humour noir, one of the seminal concepts of Surrealism. This title offers an anthology of the writers the author most admires. It discusses the acerbic aphorisms of Swift, Lichtenberg and Duchamp, the theatrical slapstick of Christian Dietrich Grabbe, the wry missives of Rimbaud, and the manic paranoia of Dali.

Nadja by Andre Breton Nadja, Paperback (September 1999)

Weaves a tapestry of daily life as seen through a magical perspective. This book combines Breton's autobiographical fact with memory and imagination, and spins a love story in modern literature.

Notebook of a Return to the Native Land by Andre Breton Notebook of a Return to the Native Land, Paperback (January 1995)

Cesaire's masterpiece that reaches the powerful and overlooked aspects of black culture."

Mad Love by Andre Breton Mad Love, Paperback (June 1987)
