“It is true that there is hidden in Roussel something so strong, so ominous and so pregnant with the darkness of the ‘infinite spaces’ . . . that one feels the need for some sort of protective equipment when one reads him.” (John Ashbery)
“[P]resident of the republic of dreams.” (Louis Aragon)
“I have kept my love for Roussel as something gratuitous, and I prefer it that way. . . . it’s my secret affair. You know, [Roussel’s work] was my love for several summers . . . no one knew it.” (Michel Foucault)
“With Mark Polizzotti, Roussel has finally found his immaculate translator. Polizzotti hews closely to Roussel’s precisely engineered language, rendering a loyal English version without forfeiting the book’s underlying sense of enigma.” (Ben Marcus - Harper's Magazine)
