9780872863729: Constellations of Miro, Breton

During the early days of the Second World War, the Catalán painter, Joan Miró, created a startling series of twenty-three gouaches, his Constellations, works redolent with the nightmare of contemporary events. In 1958 the French poet André Breton composed his own "Constellations," a set of hermetic prose poems meant to "illustrate"—that is, not simply to shed light on, but to lend luster to—Miró's paintings, and to resume a peripatetic dialogue about exile. In Constellations of Miró, Breton Paul Hammond unravels some of the mysteries of the call-and-response of these two surrealists by reading the pictures against the poetry, the poetry against the pictures, and both against the madness of a history that none of us has left that far behind.

Featured in this edition are reproductions of the complete series of Joan Miró's Constellations and a translation of André Breton's "proses parallèles." Also included is André Breton's essay, "Constellations of Joan Miró," as well as documentary illustrations and photographs.

Paul Hammond is the author of Marvellous Méliès, French Undressing, Upon the Pun: Dual Meaning in Words and Pictures (with Patrick Hughes), and a monograph on Luis Buñuel's L'Âge d'or. He is the editor and translator of The Shadow and Its Shadow:Surrealist Writings on the Cinema (a new edition published by City Lights Books in Fall 2000), and the coeditor, with Ian Breakwell, of Seeing in the Dark: A Compendium of Cinemagoing and Brought to Book: The Balance of Books and Life. His translations include Whatever by Michel Houellebecq and The Virgin of the Hitmen by Fernando Vallejo.

"He's right behind me, he's after every last one of my ringlets, he treats me like a violin you tune, he abandons me in his maze where the lustrous agate veers!" --André Breton, from "Women Encircled by the Flight of a Bird" (1958)
