Surrealism in Latin American Literature: Searching for Breton's Ghost is the first comprehensive study of Spanish-language surrealism in the Americas. Charting surrealism in Latin American literature from its initial appearance in Argentina in 1928 to the surrealist-inspired work of several writers in the 1970s, Melanie Nicholson argues that the literary movement exercised a significant and positive influence over twentieth-century Latin American literature, particularly poetry. Within the framework of literary and cultural history, the book offers close readings of surrealist texts - many of which appear here for the first time in English translation - and traces the heterodox ways in which Latin American writers, far from merely mimicking French surrealist principles or techniques, fashioned an aesthetic that reflected their distinct individual and cultural realities.
