Most widely held works by Raymond Roussel
New impressions of Africa Nouvelles impressions d'Afrique by Raymond Roussel ( )
8 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and French and held by 936 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Poet, novelist, playwright, and chess enthusiast, Raymond Roussel (1877-1933) was one of the French belle époque's most compelling literary figures. During his lifetime, Roussel's work was vociferously championed by the surrealists, but never achieved the widespread acclaim for which he yearned. New Impressions of Africa is undoubtedly Roussel's most extraordinary work. Since its publication in 1932, this weird and wonderful poem has slowly gained cult status, and its admirers have included Salvador Dalì--who dubbed it the most "ungraspably poetic" work of the era--André Breton, Jean Cocteau
