Surrealist Poetry in France


The first intensive study done in any language of the expression of surrealism in poetry, examined through analysis of the work of French poets from the 1920s to the 1960s. Dissections of the work of Aragon, Péret, Eluard, Arp, and 12 others illustrate the range of poetic response brought forth by surrealist principles, making clearer the codified norms of surrealist poetic practice.
