Philippe Soupault: Lost Profiles. Memoirs of Cubism, Dada, and Surrealism

A literary retrospective of a crucial period in modernism—the transition from Dada to Surrealism––via portraits and encounters with its literary lions, including Joyce, Proust, Reverdy, Apollinaire, Crevel and more by the co-founder of the Paris surrealist group.

Poet Alan Bernheimer provides a long overdue English translation of this French literary classic—Lost Profiles is a retrospective of a crucial period in modernism, written by co-founder of the Surrealist Movement.

Opening with a reminiscence of the international Dada movement in the late 1910s and its transformation into the beginnings of surrealism, Lost Profiles then proceeds to usher its readers into encounters with a variety of literary lions.

We meet an elegant Marcel Proust, renting five adjoining rooms at an expensive hotel to “contain” the silence needed to produce Remembrance of Things Past; an exhausted James Joyce putting himself through grueling translation sessions for Finnegans Wake; and an enigmatic Apollinaire in search of the ultimate objet trouvé.

Soupault sketches lively portraits of surrealist precursors like Pierre Reverdy and Blaise Cendrars, a moving account of his tragic fellow surrealist René Crevel, and the story of his unlikely friendship with right-wing anti-Vichy critic George Bernanos.

The collection ends with essays on two modernist forerunners, Charles Baudelaire and Henri Rousseau. With an afterword by Ron Padgett recounting his meeting with Soupault in the mid 70’s and a preface by André Breton biographer Mark Polizzotti, Lost Profiles confirms Soupault’s place in the vanguard of twentieth-century literature.

Philippe Soupault (1897-1990) served in the French army during WWI and subsequently joined the Dada movement. In 1919, he collaborated with André Breton on the automatic text Les Champs magnétiques, launching the surrealist movement. In the years that followed, he wrote novels and journalism, directed Radio Tunis in Tunisia, and worked for UNESCO.

Dan DADA doe uw werk!

Dan dada doe uw werk!
Avant-gardistische poëzie uit de Lage Landen

Redactie: Geert Buelens, Hubert van den Berg

‘Dan dada doe uw werk!’ Met deze woorden besluit I.K. Bonset in 1921 in De Stijl een tirade tegen pogingen om ‘de kanselliteratuur van vóór ’80’ in het interbellum nieuw leven in te blazen. Of dada het ‘predikantenpathos’ inderdaad wist uit te drijven uit de Nederlandstalige literatuur, valt te betwijfelen. Wel lieten dada en andere avant-gardistische ‘ismen’ hun onmiskenbare sporen na in de Nederlandstalige poëzie.

In Dan dada doe uw werk! presenteren samenstellers Hubert van den Berg en Geert Buelens een dwarsdoorsnede van de poëtische avant-garde in de vroege twintigste eeuw in Nederland en Vlaanderen. De bloemlezing bevat werk van onder anderen Piet Mondriaan, I.K. Bonset, Paul van Ostaijen, Herman van den Bergh, Hendrik de Vries, H. Marsman, Pierre Kemp, Kurt Schwitters, Antony Kok, Victor J. Brunclair, Til Brugman, Gaston Burssens, A.C. Willink, Michel Seuphor en H.N. Werkman.

Dan dada doe uw werk! is het laatste deel in de Dada-reeks van Uitgeverij Vantilt. Eerder verschenen Tenderenda de Fantast van Hugo Ball, In den beginne was Dada van Raoul Hausmann, 7 dadamanifesten van Tristan Tzara, En Avant dada van Richard Huelsenbeck, Een avond in Cabaret Voltaire van Hans Arp e.a., Jezus Christus Quibus van Francis Picabia en Apologie van de luiheid en Pan Pan voor de Poeper van de Neger Naakt & Bar Nicanor van Clément Pansaers.
