André Breton by Claude Mauriac

By Claude Mauriac

André Breton et les surréalistes ont changé notre imaginative and prescient du monde. Voici les annales de leurs victoires et de leurs défaites. los angeles Révolution, L'Au-delà, Le Réel, Le Surréel, L'Amour : en cinq chapitres denses, rigoureux et documentés, Claude Mauriac se penche sur l'oeuvre et los angeles vie de Breton. Il examine le surréalisme dans ses rapports à l'esthétique, à l. a. politique, à l. a. faith, à l. a. vie comme cryptogramme. L'histoire de los angeles littérature, de Sade à Rimbaud, de Benjamin consistent à Lautréamont, s'en trouve rétrospectivement éclairée. Textes en major, cet essai intransigeant rend justice à un considérable, ainsi qu'à l'école littéraire los angeles plus importante depuis le romantisme où brillèrent, aussi, Aragon, Eluard et Desnos.
