Adventures in 'pataphysics
The first of two volumes that will finally bring all of Jarry's works into English. It begins with his two privately printed books, Black Minutes of Memorial Sand and Caesar Antichrist; followed by philosophical, practical and aesthetic essays, To be and To Live, Time in Art. It concludes with Jarry's own selection of journalism, texts which indulge in wild speculation and black humour (Andre Breton coined the latter term in order to describe them). This collection helps explain his importance to the appearance of the modern movement in French literature.
