(publisher note)
Les Champs Magnetiques was written long before any surrealist manifesto had been published, and is regarded as the birth of surrealism. The book is the first experiment with 'aucriture automatique', a literary technique derived from free association in psychoanalysis. The result is an enchanting and evocative collection of prose and poetry. written as in a trance by two young authors in just one week . According to Louis Aragon Breton and Soupault had grown into a two-headed writer. Magnetische Velden is dedicated to the dandy Jacques Vaché, who committed suicide at early age with an overdose of opium.
