The Real Life and Celestial Adventures of Tristan TzaraBook - 2014
As a leader of Dada, Tzara helped create the moment art changed forever. But, Hentea shows, Tzara and Dada were not coterminous. Tzara went on to publish more than fifty books; he wrote one of the great poems of surrealism; he became a recognized expert on primitive art; he was an active antifascist, a communist, and a forumer communist. Hentea offers a detailed exploration of Tzara's early life in Romania; a scrupulous assessment of his Dada years; and a fascinating reconstruction of Tzara's often surprising post-Dada activities and adventures.
