Celine's fascination with ballet spans his literary career: three of the pieces in this volume were written around the same time that he published his great novel, Voyage au bout de le nuit, which he dedicated to the dancer Elisabeth Craig. At the time of his death, according to his wife - also a dancer - he was planning a book devoted to dance, and in 1936, after finishing his second novel, he visited Russia, where he hoped to have some of his ballets performed. None were, but he continued nevertheless. This is the collected works, published for the first time in English.
