Abstract:

Ce n'est pas la poesie qui doit etre libre, c'est le poete. A legendary figure within the Surrealist movement, Robert Desnos (1900-1945) has left a unique legacy as a poet of distinction, as a 'dormeur eveille' revered by his fellow Surrealists, and as a free spirit par excellence. In celebrating Desnos's unique creative voice, this book re-evaluates his prominence within and beyond the Surrealist movement, reappraises his status as a poet, and sheds new light on his contribution to the literary and cultural life of his age. The essays in the volume reflect the ongoing vitality and relevance.
