"This volume contains Tristan Tzara's famous manifestos which first appeared between 1916 and 1921 and which became basic texts of the modern movement and precursors and models for the surrealist manifestos that were to appear subsequently from Breton and his followers. Art for Tzara was both deadly serious and a game and the playfulness of his character is apparent not only in his polemic, often using dadaist typography, but in the delightful doodles and drawings contributed by his friend Francis Picabia. In addition to the seven manifestos, this volume also contains Tzara's Lampisteries, articles that throw light on various art forms contemporary with his own work at the time when post-war art, weary of the old certainties and the holocaust that emerged from them, turned decisively into subjective and often abstract forms, exchanging the reality of the mind for that of the senses."--BOOK JACKET.

Over de auteur (1977)

Tristan Tzara was born Samuel Rosenstock on April 16, 1896 in Moinesti, Romania. He is a writer associated with the Dada movement, a nihilistic revolutionary movement in the arts that took place in Zurich and Paris. The Dadaist movement originated in Zürich during World War I; Tzara wrote the first Dada texts - La Premiére Aventure cèleste de Monsieur Antipyrine (1916; "The First Heavenly Adventure of Mr. Antipyrine") and Vingt-cinq poémes (1918; "Twenty-Five Poems") - and the movement's manifestos, Sept manifestes Dada (1924; "Seven Dada Manifestos"). In Paris he engaged in tumultuous activities with André Breton, Philippe Soupault, and Louis Aragon to shock the public and to disintegrate the structures of language. About 1930, weary of nihilism and destruction, he joined his friends in the more constructive activities of Surrealism. He devoted much of his time to the reconciliation of Surrealism and Marxism and joined the Communist Party in 1936 and the French Resistance movement during World War II. His mature works started with L'Homme approximatif (1931; "The Approximate Man") and continued with Parler seul (1950; "Speaking Alone") and La Face intèrieure (1953; "The Inner Face"). In these, the anarchically scrambled words of Dada were replaced with a difficult but humanized language. Tristan Tzara died December 24, 1963 in Paris.
