Andre Breton (1896 - 1966)
Andre Breton was a French poet, essayist, critic, and editor, chief promoter and one of the founders of the Surrealist movement. During his lifetime, Breton produced a tremendous body of work that contained poetry, novels, criticism, and theory. Of his oeuvre, the collection of poems Mad Love (L’Amour fou) (Gallimard, 1937), the critical text Communicating Vessels (Les vases communicants) (Éditions des Cahiers libres, 1932), and the novel Nadja (Librairie Gallimard, 1928), are considered to be his most valuable contributions to the literary world.
