"This is a kind of "essence of Breton," variously translated by some of our finest writers, each of whom highlights different facets of Breton's complex work. Mark Polizzotti's useful introduction provides context and a brief analysis of the artist and his times."--Diane di Prima, author of "Recollections of My Life as a Woman

"Mark Polizzotti, who is a poet, a translator, and the author of the definitive biography of Andre Breton, has chosen stellar translations of Breton's dazzling poetry and placed it in its lively context. This shapely introduction to the life and work of Andre Breton is smart, concise, and exciting. I cannot imagine a better one."--Ron Padgett, poet and translator of "The Complete Poems of Blaise Cendrars

"The Poets for the Millennium Series generally and Andre Breton's "Selected Works specifically offers a workable image of an author and the work and the conjuncture, all at once. What comes across is a vivid presentation of Andre Breton not just as an art czar, a manifesto merchant, but a serious, haunted, inventive and strangely profound poet of the imagination, who invented or archeologized new ways of dreaming, but insisted on bearing witness with them in the actual world. Polizzotti does justice--as I think no other writer has--to the double burden of Breton's work."--Robert Kelly

"A superbly chosen selection of Breton's poetry and prose, translated in every case with an elegant intelligence, and preceded by an unusually thorough introduction showing quite exactly how the poet's life informed each epoch of his work. It proves again the remarkable un-boringness of Breton, and how important he is now to our own poetry and to us.--Mary Ann Caws, author of"The Surrealist Look: An Erotics of Encounter and editor of "The Surrealist Painters and Poets
