Reviews - What do customers think about The Voiceof Robert Desnos: Selected Poems?

"No, love is not dead in this heart and in these eyes and in this mouth"  Mar 25, 2008
This is a beautiful introduction to the poetry of Robert Desnos. His work displays the stunning imagery & dazzling wordplay of his fellow Surrealists, as might be expected ... but his is a distinctly passionate voice, one that holds nothing back in its declarations of yearning & love. Yet his work never descends even remotely into vague mushiness or greeting card blandness. Within a single line, he can be swooning & agonizing over love, without ever losing his considerable intellect, literary knowledge, and wicked wit -- no small feat!

To my mind, Desnos is one of the most humanly engaging of the Surrealists. His poetry will touch you -- a touch that can be a sensual caress, a sizzling jolt of electricity, a bold communion of two people through words. Most highly recommended!
The Hidden Voice....  Jun 28, 2006
it's sad how many people/writers don't know the work of robert desnos. one of the greatest poetical voices of the 1900's. not only is his poetry great, his life (and how he sacrificed) is a beautiful story.
