When first published in France in 1984, Le surrealisme was widely acclaimed as the definitive survey of the surrealist movement. Clearly and elegantly translated, Surrealism is now the premiere English-language study of the literary and artistic movement whose revolutionary goals and accomplishments continue to exert a profound influence on modern art and literature. In this extraordinary historical and critical survey Chenieux-Gendron first examines the radical strains in literary movements up to two hundred years earlier and other inspirations and influences upon surrealist endeavours. She then explores the movement's philosophical, aesthetic, and psychological underpinnings, and clearly defines its central concepts and practices, such as its theories of poetic images, automatic writing, and black humour.
