Summary

Summary

Vitezslav Nezval (1900-58) was an active participant in the European avant-garde between the two world wars. In the '20s he was the founding figure of poetism', a movement of poets and artists centred in Prague. Like other major innovators, he worked through a prolific sweep of modes and genres and formed an alliance with Andre Breton and his Paris circle in the 1930s, founding the first surrealist group and magazine outside France. This collection brings together, for the first time, a sampling of Nezval's major works from the '20s and 30's.'
