Description - Surrealist Painters and Poets by Mary Ann Caws
The essays, manifestos, poems, and texts in this anthology offer a composite picture of the Surrealists - their convictions, styles, and spirit - from the movement's beginnings in France just after World War I to its second flowering in America after World War II. The book includes writers and artists from Belgium, Chile, Czechoslovakia, Cuba, Egypt, England, France, Germany, Guyana, Italy, Martinique, Mauritius, Mexico, Spain, Switzerland, Senegal, Uruguay, and the United States. Caws's main criterion for inclusion was that the works be the best and most representative of the different forms of Surrealism. Among others, the artists and writers include Andr Breton, Marcel Duchamp and Rose S lavy, Max Ernst, Mina Loy, Francis Picabia, and Tristan Tzara.
