David Gascoyne’s classic text of 1935 was the first comprehensive work on Surrealism to be published in English. His membership of the Surrealist movement and his association with its leading members – among them André Breton, Paul Eduard, Max Ernst and Salvador Dalí – placed him in the ideal position to witness and record the development and significance of its foremost writers and artists. David Gascoyne lived in France in 1937-39, 1947-8 and 1953-64, during which time he became one of the most distinguished of British poets and translators. His other Enitharmon books include Selected Poems, Selected Verse Translations, Selected Prose 1934-1996 and the novella April.
