THE ADVENTURES OF TELEMACHUS

Author(s): ARAGON LOUIS

Fiction

This is the first paperback edition in English of one of the most important and entertaining works of Surrealist fiction. Aragon's 1922 novel boldly appropriates the titles and plot of a 17th century epic, recounting the adventures of Odysseus' son Telemachus but the moralistic underpinnings of the original are replaced by a Surrealist's dedication to the strange, the contrary. A wryly self-conscious book, full of the kinds of intertextual games associated with writers such as Borges and Calvino.
