About the book:

In "My Body and I" (1925), Rene Crevel attempts to trace with words the geography of a being, exploring the tension between body and spirit. Crevel's meditation is a vivid personal journey through illusion and disillusion, secret desire, memory, the possibility and impossibility of life, sensuality and sexuality, poetry and the wilderness of the imagination. The narrator's Romantic mind moves from evocative tales to frank confessions, making the reader a confidant to this great soul trapped in an awkward-fitting body. Admired greatly by Andre Breton and Ezra Pound, Crevel might be thought of as a surrealist Proust.Robert Bononno's translations include Henri Raczymow's "Swan's Way" and Herve Guibert's "Ghost Image."
