A Short Survey of Surrealism by David Gascoyne / ISBN 9781900564663 / 128-page paperback published by Enitharmon Press


David Gascoyne lived in France in 1937-39, 1947-8 and 1953-64, during which time he became one of the most distinguished of British poets and translators.

This classic text of 1935 was the first comprehensive work on Surrealism to be published in English. Gascoyne’s membership of the Surrealist movement and his association with its leading members - among them André Breton, Paul Eluard, Max Ernst and Salvador Dalí - placed him in an ideal position to witness and record the development and significance of its foremost artists and writers. A Short Survey of Surrealism is not merely a history of the birth and growth of the movement but also a thorough analysis of the main ideas associated with it.
