Sent by Raymond Queneau in February 1929, this questionnaire addressed to numerous public figures (“Mister…”) acknowledges the difficulties encountered by reviews like La Révolution surréaliste, Le Grand Jeu, La Lutte de classes, Distances, L'Esprit, all of which have almost ceased publication. He asks the addressees if they would be ready to commit themselves to act, and how they should proceed, in order to renew a forum of intellectual life. [Gilles Mioni, André Breton site, 2011]
