GRACQ Julien. André Breton
AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT. 7 pages in-8, under folder titled by Julien Gracq. Manuscript by Julien Gracq entirely dedicated to André Breton. Text written for the newspaper Le Monde in 1996 by Julien Gracq for the centenary of the birth of André Breton, and reprinted in the edition of Marie-Claire Dumas André Breton en perspective cavalière (page 7 is folioed 8). "I don't think Breton would have welcomed the celebration of the centenary of his birth very well. If he had, in his own way, something to do with the sacred, he had little to do with the official and the agreed rites of commemoration . Breton was all forward-thinking, on the lookout for what's coming, unwilling to recapitulate, he was not a backseat traveller..." Remarkable text by Julien Gracq.
