Un cadavre (Anatole France).
|(Paris), no publ., (18 October 1924). 32 x 24,5 cm, (4)pp.
By condemning Anatole France, the day he died, as the prototype of the despicable bourgois author, adding insult to injury, the surrealists - with their first true pamphlet - found a new polemical tone that would turn out to be an efficient tool in smoking out all sorts of supporters of the established order. Aragon concludes his conribution with : "Certains jours j'ai rêvé d'une gomme à effacer l'immondice humaine."
