Nadja by André Breton( Book )

387 editions published between 1928 and 2017 in 23 languages and held by 2,966 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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

Anthology of black humor by André Breton( Book )

164 editions published between 1940 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,173 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'"--
The lost steps = Les pas perdus by André Breton( Book )

113 editions published between 1923 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 1,171 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

Together they display the full span of Breton's preoccupations, his abiding faith in the early principles of surrealism, and the changing orientations, in light of crucial events of those years, of the surrealist movement within which he remained the leading force."--BOOK JACKET

Œuvres complètes by André Breton( Book )

in French and Italian and held by 386 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
Position politique du surréalisme by André Breton( Book )

38 editions published between 1935 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le surréalisme n'a pas été uniquement un mouvement culturel qui a bouleversé les normes et les schémas de la création. Il a aussi débouché sur un engagement politique révolutionnaire, dont le détail a été le plus souvent réglé par André Breton en personne. Position politique du surréalisme, reprenant une série d'interventions centrées sur l'art et ses implications sociales, apparaît ainsi comme le complément obligé des textes programmatiques repris dans le recueil des Manifestes surréalistes. On y découvre, notamment, un long développement, consacré à la Position politique de l'art d'aujourd'hui, qui définit le rôle des avant-gardes artistiques et isole les liens conflictuels unissant certains artistes à la société de leur temps. La subversion de l'art comme condition de sa pérennité. De grands dégagements sur la question de l'esthétique, des commentaires d'oeuvres classiques, des appréciations parfois polémiques sur le mythe révolutionnaire et une réflexion stimulante sur les rapports de la politique et de l'art: André Breton continue ici son formidable travail de théoricien
