A very beautiful yet anomalous book, which owes something to both Ultraism and Creationism, and more to Surrealism, written in almost all its entirety in French by a poet who sought the limits of language in his own reticence. It contains two of my favorite poems of all time, "Quarry (Flesh, my dear dynamite)" and "Reason (Succession of sounds moving to the gleam)", translated at one time by a very young Gerardo Diego.
