"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."--Jacket

You gain an appreciation for the international breadth of the movement. 'What is Surrealism?' is not just for art history students.

The lost steps = Les pas perdus by André Breton( Book )

64 editions published between 1923 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 968 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Lost Steps (Les Pas perdus) is Andre Breton's first collection of critical and polemical essays. Composed between 1917 and 1923, these pieces trace his evolution during the years when he was emerging as a central figure in French (and European) intellectual life. They chronicle his tumultuous passage through the Dada movement, proclaim his explosive views on Modernism and its heroes, and herald the emergence of Surrealism itself. Along the way, we are given Breton's serious commentaries on his Modernist predecessors, Guillaume Apollinaire and Alfred Jarry, followed by his not-so-serious Dada manifestoes
Anthologie de l'humour noir by André Breton( Book )

119 editions published between 1940 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 822 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is Breton's definitive statement on l'humour noir, one of the seminal concepts of surrealism. 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 Dali, 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, partly ironic, and often absurd turn of spirit that Breton defined as 'a superior revolt of the mind'"--

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

Martinique : snake charmer by André Breton( Book )

41 editions published between 1948 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 514 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.""--Jacket
Break of day = Point du jour by André Breton( Book )

45 editions published between 1934 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Œuvres complètes by André Breton( Book )

31 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in French and Italian and held by 457 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
