And you thought surrealists only painted. Highballs can't compare to Verlaine burning on a streetcar at dusk in Paris; she is in the bath. The most complete anthology of surrealist poetry I've yet encountered. Rimbaud, Artaud, Reverdy, yum yum yum I eat it. Back order back order. Give me more!

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By "dumpino-rubbishini" on January 31, 2001
Format: Hardcover
Yes, this perhaps the best anthology of surrealist poetry ever compiled. However, Rimbaud is not in it, and is not a surrealist, in any case, altho embraced by Breton through the surrealist time machine. Apollinaire being the only "precursor" appearing here. But also includes Artaud, Arp, and Daumal, who are marginally Surrealists, altho certainly influenced. Arp, of course, along with Tzara here, being of original Dada gang. Benedikt intro. and commentaries are worth the price of admission, if you can find a copy! For some reason, this is an amazingly elusive tome. Good luck.
