This is the first paperback edition in English of one of the most important and entertaining works of Surrealist fiction. Aragon's 1922 novel boldly appropriates the titles and plot of a 17th century epic, recounting the adventures of Odysseus' son Telemachus but the moralistic underpinnings of the original are replaced by a Surrealist's dedication to the strange, the contrary. A wryly self-conscious book, full of the kinds of intertextual games associated with writers such as Borges and Calvino.
