Letter to Paul Gustave van Hecke, André Breton


Handwritten letter by André Thirion to André Breton, dated June 24th, 1929.

The end of a relationship (at the end of the letter) and controversy; in this letter from Thirion to Breton, dated June 24th, 1929, is enclosed the copy of a letter to the Director of Variétés, responding to Malraux and Berl’s responses. While Breton and Aragon will say they refuse to be involved in a controversy with people who are not invited to participate in the debate, Thirion seeks here to give his opponents the runaround by taking up their arguments and ridiculing them. These letters will be published together in the August 15th issue of the Belgian review. [Atelier André Breton website, 2005]
