Max Ernst (1891-1976)
Le Sourd et L'aveugle (The Deaf and the Blind)
Insofar as is known, the drawings were created independently of the poems and subsequently acquired their present titles from the poems preceding them on the page - without Ernst's participation in the layout of poems and drawings. Accordingly, any perceived relationships between poems, drawings, and titles are fortuitous, or products of our efforts, or the results of Breton's decisions about the composition of the issue.
