Summary
"The Sources of Surrealism is a comprehensive sourcebook documenting the origins and development of Surrealism internationally through a collection of 234 original documents. The texts have been selected from across the whole range of Surrealist writing, as well as including influential predecessors like Rimbaud and Lautreamont, and contemporaries such as Raymond Roussell and Alfred Jarry. Texts are published in English throughout, with new translations provided for previously untranslated material." "The book addresses for the first time the neglected area of the relationship between Surrealism and popular culture, including Surrealism's engagement with cinema, and attempts to address the increased critical interest in what in the past were more neglected figures, such as Michel Leiris and Georges Bataille. Particular emphasis is given to the earlier documents and influences upon the Surrealist movement, as well as to the period of its internationalism during the 1930s, and the texts cover Surrealism in Britain and Belgium as well as France."--BOOK JACKET
