Salvador Dal''s writings from the period in which he was most closely allied with the Surrealists have never before been translated into English. These short fictions, essays, and poems contain all the egotistic brio one might expect from Dal', but they also reveal an earnest and even sentimental artist. They document Dal''s friendships with fellow Spaniards Luis Buiuel and Federico Garc'a Lorca, his entry into the world of the Parisian Surrealists, his passion for the emerging arts of photography and cinema, and the development of his "Paranoid-Critical Method," the theoretical basis for Dal''s work throughout his life. In 1934, Dal' and Andra Breton would break forever--"The only difference between me and a Surrealist is that I am a Surrealist," he later said--but in the period 1927-1933, such distinctions were unnecessary.
