At the height of the Cubist movement in Paris, no fewer than fifteen significant poets kept company with the painters. “Every writer had his painter,” said Blaise Cendrars. “I myself had Delaunay and Léger, Max Jacob had Picasso, Reverdy Braque, and Apollinaire had everybody.” The painters illustrated the poets’ poems and painted their portraits; the poets wrote the painters’ praise and defended them in journalistic wars. They loaned each other money, gave shelter to each other in times of need, inspired each other, and fortified each other’s resolve through thick and thin. The Cubist Poets in Paris evokes the capital city of Cubism in all its flamboyant bustle. It includes groups of poems by Guillaume Apollinaire, Pierre Albert-Birot, Blaise Cendrars, Jean Cocteau, Sonia Delaunay, Paul Dermée, Pierre Drieu la Rochelle, Charlotte Gardelle, Vicente Huidobro, Max Jacob, Marie Laurencin, Hélène Baronne d’Oettingen, Raymond Radiguet, Pierre Reverdy, and André Salmon. Each poem is presented in French and in English translation. Fifteen illustrations suggest the painters’ close ties with the poets, including works by Juan Gris, Giorgio de Chirico, and Léopold Suvage.

About the Author:

LeRoy C. Breunig has taught at Cornell University, Harvard, Columbia University, and at Barnard College, where he was Dean of Faculty and interim president. He has edited Guillaume Apollinaire’s Chroniques d’art and Apollinaire on Art. His articles have appeared in Mercure de France, Comparative Literature, and Yale French Studies.

From Library Journal:

This compilation, a synthesis of the collaboration between Cubist art and literature, draws mainly on the works of 15 Parisian Cubist poets of the first two decades of this century, including Guillaume Apollinaire, Max Jacob, and Andre Salmon, who, together with Picasso, formed the nucleus of the French Cubist movement. During the heyday of the movement, Cubist art and poetry interacted and developed remarkable stylistic parallels. Cubist painters portrayed poets and illustrated their poems; poets lauded the painters and supported their art in intellectual circles. The 15 illustrations by Cubist painters accompanying some of the poems suggest these close ties. The poets are introduced alphabetically; each poem is presented in its French original and in English translation on opposing pages. The editor limited his choices to early French and Francophone Cubist poets and painters, focusing more on their primary works than their theories, ideologies, or manifestos. Anglophone Cubists and others were purposely omitted. Recommended for all poetry collections.?Ali Houissa, Cornell Univ., Ithaca, N.Y.
