Lautreamont Nomad

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Isidore Ducasse, the self-styled Comte de Lautreamont (1846-1870), born of French parents in Montevideo, moved to Paris in 1859 and published the earliest installments of his legendary prose poem, The Cantos of Maldoror, in 1868. The complete text of this book and of the
mysterious Poesies were published after Lautreamonts premature, mysterious
death in a hotel on Rue du Faubourg-Montmartre.

 The influence of his work on modern French poetry, and in particular on the origins of Surrealism,
were profound, and have been celebrated by figures as diverse as Andre Breton, Valery Larbaud, and Henry Miller.

In Lautreamont Nomad, Polizzotti provides English-speaking readers with the ideal
introduction to the works of Isidore Ducasse. He explores the life, ideas,
themes, and style of this writer of miraculous prose and renders him accessible
to the general reader. In these pages, we begin to glimpse the heart of this
most solitary and mysterious of writers, one whose power and opacity remain
intact more than a century after his death.

Good condition. Self wrap paperback. Undamaged with clean pages but grubby and slightly sunned cover.
