Nadja: Letras Universales / Universal Writings

Front Cover
Cátedra, Mar 29, 2004 - Fiction - 245 pages
" Nadjia " (1928) es una obra compleja en la que, a partir de la relación que se estableció en 1924 entre el personaje que da título al realto y el autor, se encuentran todas las claves del Surrealismo en la etapa de su desarrollo inmediatamente posterior a la publicación del primero de sus " Manifiestos " , es decir, en pleno dinamismo conceptual. Muy densa en significados, puede ser considerada una de las obras más importantes del autor y del movimiento del que es, sin duda, su quintaesencia. " Nadja " es la obra germinal del movimiento literario surrealista en nueva traducción y con el comentario del mejor especialista español en ese periodo literario francés.

About the author (2004)

Andre Breton, poet, novelist, philosophical essayist, and art critic, is considered the father of surrealism. From World War I to the 1940s, Breton was at the forefront of the numerous avant-garde activities that centered in Paris. A prolific producer of pamphlets and manifestoes, he also edited two surrealist periodicals. Breton's influence on the art and literature of the twentieth century has been enormous. Picasso, Derain, Magritte, Giacometti, Cocteau, Eluard, and Gracq are among the many whose work was affected by his thinking. From 1927 to 1933, Breton was a member of the Communist party, but thereafter he opposed communism. At the time of Breton's death in 1966, his novel Nadja (1928), about a young dreamer in love with an ethereal heroine was reaching a new generation of theatre goers.
