Poetry. Written to friends and fellow Surrealists such as Pablo Picasso, Andre Derain, Robert Desnos, Francis Picabia, Pierre Reverdy, and Max Ernst, the poems in this collection date from 1919 to 1936, spanning Breton's involvement with Dadaism and his founding and development of Surrealism. The range of poetic forms, from the early collage compositions to the "Five Dreams" of EARTHLIGHT and the incantatory, feverish love poem "Free Union," reveals Breton's compositional methods and styles.
