Previously untranslated poems of love and desperation written by Andre Breton between 1926 and 1931, most of them unpublished during his lifetime. Sometimes sharply autobiographical, sometimes dizzyingly oblique, these poems trace Bretons tumultuous love affair with Suzanne Muzard, the woman who changed the course of his life in the early years of Surrealism. The volume includes an introduction by translator and Breton biographer Mark Polizzotti, discussing the poems' background and history. Printed in a limited edition of 300 copies, with three period photographs of Breton and Muzard. The first one hundred copies are signed by the translator.
