About this product
- DescriptionStories and Remarks collects the best of Raymond Queneau's shorter prose. The works span his career and include short stories, an uncompleted vel, melancholic and absurd essays, occasionally baffling Texticles, a pastiche of Alice in Wonderland, and his only play. Talking dogs, boozing horses, and suicides come head to head with ruminations on the effects of aerodynamics on addition, rhetorical dreams, and a pioneering example of permutational fiction influenced by computer language. Also included is Michel Leiris's preface from the French edition, an introduction by the translator, and endtes addressing each piece individually. Raymond Queneau-polyglot, velist, philosopher, poet, mathematician, screenwriter, and translator-was one of the most significant figures in twentieth-century French letters. His work touches on many of the major literary movements of his lifetime, from surrealism to the experimental school of the uveau roman. He also founded the Oulipo, a collection of writers and mathematicians dedicated to the search for artificial inspiration via the application of constraint.
