This post–Second World War collection forms a bridge between the irrational world of Breton and the surrealist movement and the philosophical "absurd" of existentialism. Ranging widely in theme, these poems are concerned with the elements, moral fables, and theatre. Featuring unique reflections on writing and aesthetics, this compendium is Queneau's final poetic testament.
