Publisher Comments:

Poetry. Translated from the French by Lisa Lubasch. Paul Eluard was briefly involved with the Dada Movement, but soon helped to found Surrealism, though he would later break from that movement as well. Throughout his life, Eluard perceived poetry as an action capable of arousing awareness in his readers, and recognized it as a powerful force in the struggle of political, sexual, and social change. Published in 1949, A MORAL LESSON explores evil and good as slightly unpredictable forces which at times might be perceived as indistinguishable. Yet Eluard explores the two with a determined effort to transform evil into good. "Through our perseverance, we will render pain and error harmless." This poetic dialogue stands as a magnificent testament to Eluard's poetry and his life.

Synopsis:

One of the most important books by the renowned French poet, Paul Eluard

Synopsis:

Paul Éluard was one of the most important of the early surrealists. Born in Paris in 1895, Éluard first became involved with the Dada movement, and after the war, disgusted by the commonly accepted laws of bourgeois morality, involved himself with surrealism. His fame as a poet began with Capitale de la Douleur (1926) and continued over the next 26 years with over 50 books. Une Leçon de Morale (A Moral Lesson) appeared in 1949, three years before his death.
