In his provocative anthology of the writers he most admires, Breton discusses the acerbic aphorisms of Swift, Lichtenberg and Duchamp, the theatrical slapstick of Christian Dietrich Grabbe, the wry missives of Rimbaud, the manic paranoia of Dalí, the ferocious iconoclasm of Alfred Jarry and the offhand hilarity of Apollinaire. For each of the authors included, Breton provides an enlightening preface, situating both the writer and the work in the context of black humour – a partly macabre

17 editions published between 1988 and 1999 in French and Italian and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Breton (1896-1966) n'a cessé de mener, dans son interrogation de l'écriture et de la vie intérieure, comme dans sa participation difficile à une activité politique à laquelle il se sentait tenu, une aventure intellectuelle où se rencontrent Freud, Hegel, Engels, et une quête sensible, éclairée par Rimbaud, Lautréamont, Picasso, Chirico et Duchamp, l'une et l'autre tendues par la volonté de 'changer la vie'. Aventure et quête collectives, qui exigent une communauté organique, soudée par l'esprit comme par les affinités électives. L'aspiration résolue à faire advenir le possible aux dépens du probable, qui définit le surréalisme de Breton, passe par les chemins de la poésie, de la liberté et de l'amour. Elle a trouvé une langue qui lui assure une place parmi les premiers écrivains de son époque. Maintenue sans désemparer pendant plus d'un demi-siècle, cette volonté conduit Gracq à reconnaître en lui 'un des héros de notre temps'."--Publisher description
