CRAVAN, Arthur, Jacques RIGAUT, Julien TORMA, and Jacques VACHÉ. 4 Dada Suicides : Selected texts of Arthur Cravan, Jacques Rigaut, Julien Torma & Jacques Vaché. Introduced by Roger Conover, Terry Hale & Paul Lenti, & translated by Terry Hale, Paul Lenti, Iain White, &c. (London) : Atlas, (1995). First Edition. Pp [1]-269,(3). Illustrated. Square 8vo, black card covers, This book collects together works by four "writers" on the fringes of the Dada movement in 1920's Paris. These four took the nihilism of the movement toits ultimate conclusion, their works are remnants of lives lived to the li mit and then cast aside with nonchalance and abandon: Vaché died of a drug overdose, Rigaut shot himself, Cravan and Torma simply vanished, their fates still a mystery. Yet their fragmentary works - to which they attached so little importance still exert a powerful allure and were a vital inspiration for the literary movements that followed them. Vaché's bitter humour, Cravan's energetic invective, Rigaut's dandyfied introspection, and Torma's imperturbable asperity: all had their influence. This collection contains biographical introductions to each author as well as personal recollections bytheir contemporaries.`- from the back cover. Very good. 45.00
