Louis Aragon 1924

(translated by Susan de Muth 2010)

“…a leftfield treat…mysteriously opaque and strangely lovely.”
Thomas H Green, Daily Telegraph.

‘A Wave of Dreams is ravishing, a marvellous piece of work….and beautifully packaged’
Gavin Martin, Daily Mirror

Louis Aragon’s seminal surrealist prose-poem-essay, is published here for the first time as a single volume in English, translated by Susan de Muth who has also translated Claude Cahun and several DaDA texts for Tate Modern.

Writing in 1924, Aragon vividly describes, and philosophically evaluates, theinner adventures, the hallucinations and encounters with the ‘Marvellous’which took the young surrealists to the brink of insanity as a revolutionary new era in Art History was born. This was the first true surrealist manifesto, preceding Breton’s by several months.

This art history milestone is introduced by Professor Dawn Ades, a world authority on Surrealism.

The book is accompanied by a complimentary CD of spoken word extracts set in musical soundscapes by composer Tymon Dogg.
