Our translators are Nikos and Gwendolyn Tsingos of Canada. Their translation of Twenty Poems appeared in Exile, Vol. 2 No. 1.


Jean Benoît, born in Canada, has been a resident of Paris since 1947 and a member of the surrealist movement for sixteen years. This is the first time such an extensive collection of photographs of his work has been published. They are arranged in order from the earliest to the most recent. The description by the artist of The Necrophiliac first appeared in Midi-Minuit Fantastique, and the commentary by Vincent Bounoure on The Object To Contain A Mummified Head in Archibras. All texts were furnished in letters from Jean Benoît to Ray Ellenwood, who did the translations.
