Abstract:

"The first prose work by Robert Desnos initially appears to be a roman à clef, except that would imply the sort of conventional narrative that is here cast gleefully aside. Most of Desnos's friends in the Paris Dada movement make an appearance, André Breton, Louis Aragon and Benjamin Péret among others; yet these young men, so well known now but who then had barely made their mark, find themselves consigned to a 'cemetery' just before the end of the book, interred alongside their literary heroes. The past, it seems, must be buried, perhaps the future too." -- Publisher's web site.
