• ARAGON: Paris Peasant
ARAGON. Paris Peasant. London: Pan Books, 1980. Reprint. 8vo. 222pp. Trade Paperback. Very Good. An important work of imaginative surrealist prose. Translated by Simon Watson Taylor.

Le Paysan de Paris is perhaps the most important work of imaginative prose to come out of surrealism. It contains the very kernel of surrealism's doctrine -- that the world of the tangible conceals a quality of the marvellous that awaits revelation. It is in this mythology of the modern that Aragon seeks to capture in this extraordinary book.
