"The core of Nadja is Breton's complex relationship with an unpredictable and unconventional young woman, 'the extreme limit of the Surrealist aspiration'. Combining autobiographical fact with memory and imagination, Breton spins one of the most unusual love stories in modern literature and illustrates the notion of 'petrifying coincidence', a cornerstone of Surrealist thought."--BOOK JACKET

Cet ouvrage célèbre citant 45 écrivains, de Swift à Jean-Pierre Duprey, complète les ##Manifestes du surréalisme## et autres écrits théoriques de Breton. Colligée en 1939, reprise en 1947, l'édition définitive fut publiée en 1966 et appartient de droit au fondateur du surréalisme tant pour la préface qui n'arrive pas tellement à définir son propos que pour le choix qui l'illustre, et ses notices très précieuses pour l'élaboration de cette définition. Le terme ##noir## est à retenir, tant y président le macabre, le sentiment de l'absurde et la contestation globale. Ensemble capital pour comprendre une certaine forme de rire désespéré issu d'une ironie subjective sans référence autre que le néant

Martinique : snake charmer by André Breton ( Book )
32 editions published between 1948 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1941, as the Vichy regime consolidated its control of France, Andre Breton left the country for the island of Martinique. A poet and the principal founder of surrealism, Breton did not stay long, but his visit inspired the essays and poems of this book. Martinique: Snake Charmer is one of surrealism's most important texts, and it has been called "the most beautiful of all books" about the island. (Martinique: Snake Charmer also includes nine evocative drawings by the surrealist Andre Masson, a companion of Breton's during his stay on the island.) First collected into a single volume in 1948 and in print in France ever since, this is the first English translation of a work that, in series editor Franklin Rosemont's view, seeks "not merely to question the dogmas and platitudes of so-called common sense and 'established facts,' but to deviate from them, absolutely, in an imaginative quest for new and untried solutions to society's gravest problems.""--BOOK JACKET

Œuvres complètes by André Breton ( Book )
19 editions published between 1988 and 1999 in French 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

62 editions published between 1955 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
André Breton cherche à démontrer que le monde réel et le monde du rêve ne font qu'un. Il examine les différentes théories qui ont proposé une interprétation du rêve, pour s'arrêter longuement à celle de Freud. Mais pour Breton l'unité du rêve et du réel passe par une profonde transformation sociale
