Summary
  • This anthology is the sequel to a 1951 volume by Robert Motherwell. The concept and contents were discussed with Robert Motherwell and met with his enthusiastic approval. The essays consider Surrealism and the Surrealists
  • "The essays, manifestos, poems, and texts in this anthology offer a composite picture of the Surrealists - their convictions, styles, and spirit - from the movement's beginnings in France just after World War I to its second flowering in America after World War II. The book includes writers and artists from Belgium, Chile, Czechoslovakia, Cuba, Egypt, England, France, Germany, Guyana, Italy, Martinique, Mauritius, Mexico, Spain, Switzerland, Senegal, Uruguay, and the United States. Caws's main criterion for inclusion was that the works well represent the different forms of Surrealism. Among others, the artists and writers include Andre Breton, Luis Bunuel, Joseph Cornell, Robert Desnos, Marcel Duchamp and Rrose Selavy, Max Ernst, Frida Kahlo, Mina Loy, Francis Picabia, Pablo Picasso, Dorothea Tanning, and Tristan Tzara."--BOOK JACKET
