Benjamin Peret

One of my favs. Spectacular surrealist.

And So On and So Forth

Published by Marcus Slease

Born in Portadown, Northern Ireland, Marcus Slease has made his home in such places as Turkey, Poland, Italy, South Korea, the United States, Spain, and the United Kingdom – experiences that inform his nomadic surrealist writing. His latest book is Never Mind the Beasts (Dostoyevsky Wannabe 2020).

One thought on “Benjamin Peret

  1. In Benjamin Péret’s poetry there are both the worst and the best. The best can be found in “Dormir dormir dans les pierres” (1927), “Le grand Jeu” (1928) (in english “The Big Game”) and “Je sublime” (1936). This one contains two great surrealist poems callled “Allô” and “Clin d’oeil”, which are hymns to mad love, full of strange and wonderful metaphors. In his poetry there is a true madness, and his taste for poetic transgression is almost not to be equalled.
