The great Pierre Reverdy, comrade to Picasso and Braque, peer and contemporary of Wallace Stevens and William Carlos Williams, is among the most mysteriously satisfying of twentieth-century poets, his poems an uncanny mixture of the simple and the sublime. Reverdy’s poetry has exerted a special attraction on American poets, from Kenneth Rexroth to John Ashbery, and this new selection, featuring the work of fourteen distinguished translators, most of it appearing here for the first time, documents that ongoing relationship while offering readers the essential work of an extraordinary writer. Translated from the French by: John Ashbery Dan Bellm Mary Ann Caws Lydia Davis Marilyn Hacker Richard Howard Geoffrey O’Brien Frank O’Hara Ron Padgett Mark Polizzotti Kenneth Rexroth Richard Sieburth Patricia Terry Rosanna Warren

“This is a fine, bilingual edition of the works of one of the great French Surrealists. . . . The translations, by several hands, serve Char well—full of insinuating rhythms and unusual verbal couplings, they come close to the piercing beauty of the originals.” —Pat Monaghan, Booklist

The first anthology of its kind, Manifesto features over two hundred artistic and cultural manifestos from a wide range of countries. The manifesto, a public statement that sets forth the tenets of a forthcoming, existing, or potential movement or "ism"?or that plays on the idea of one?became in various modernisms aøcrucial and forceful vehicle for artists, writers, and other intellectuals to express their ideas about the direction of aesthetics and society. Included in this collection are texts ranging from Kurt Schwitters's Cow Manifesto to those written in the name of well-known movements?imagism, cubism, surrealism, symbolism, vorticism, projectivism?and less well-known ones?lettrism, acmeism, concretism, rayonism. Also covered are expressionist, Dada, and futurist movements from French, Italian, Russian, Spanish, and Latin American perspectives, as well as local movements, such as Brazilian hallucinism. Influential, startling, unsettling, amusing, and continually engaging, these modernist manifestos give voice to a fascinating array of ideas and opinions that will prove invaluable to scholars and students of nineteenth and twentieth-century art, literature, and culture.

In this volume Mary Ann Caws revisits her 1974 treatise on Breton, but adopts a fresh approach; she considers different essays, concentrates on new aspects of Breton's works, and takes a new point of view. Caws structures her study in a manner true to the spirit of Surrealism, noting that the freedom from all limits that is Surrealism's goal would not be best served by concentrating on the circumstances of Breton's life or on Surrealism or its history. Caws does offer a concise review of Breton's position in literary history and a brief introduction to the basic tenets of Surrealism and variations thereof, but her primary focus is on the texts left by Breton. Though he made a point of setting down facts and details "without a preestablished order," Caws, for the purposes of this study, relies on the limits Breton himself accepted - not chronological limits, but the simple limits of form: manifestos, short essays, book-length or novelistic essays, and poetry. In Caws's view, poetry is the privileged place of Surrealist encounter, at once the least limited and the most difficult. She devotes a full chapter to Breton's poems and includes a discussion on the reading of Surrealist poetry. One of Breton's most prolific translators and a longtime acquaintance of his last two wives, Caws possesses an intimate and impassioned viewpoint. Her examination is illuminating in its focus on Breton's attitude toward the image and the imagination, the alchemical operation on language and the world, and the future of poetry.

John Ashbery writes like no one else among contemporary American poets. In the construction of his intricate patterns, he uses words much as the contemporary painter uses form and color- words painstakingly chosen as conveyors of precise meaning, not as representations of sound. These linked in unexpected juxtapositions, at first glance unrelated and even anarchic, in the end create by their clashing interplay a structure of dazzling brilliance and strong emotional impact. From this preoccupation arises a poetry that passes beyond conventional limits into a highly individual realm of effectiveness, one that may be roughly likened to the visual world of Surrealist painting. Some will find Mr. Ashbery’s work difficult, even forbidding; but those who are sensitive to new directions in ideas and the arts will discover here much to quicken and delight them. A 35th anniversary edition of classic work from a celebrated American poet who has received the Pulitzer Prize, the national Book Award, and the national Book Critics Circle Award. John Ashbery’s second book, The Tennis Court Oaths, first published by Wesleyan in 1962, remains a touchstone of contemporary avant-garde poetry.
