“The Surrealist Literary Movement in Paris”
In the early twentieth century, Surrealist writers such as André Breton, Louis Aragon, and Paul Éluard envisioned the city of Paris as an interactive playground for literary experimentation and an exploration of the unconscious. Dr. Lisa Weiss, Assistant Director of the W. T. Bandy Center for Baudelaire and Modern French Studies and lecturer in French at Vanderbilt University, will address the literary roots of Surrealism and consider how the movement’s poetry and prose intersect with the city’s urban landscape and everyday life.
