Abstract

This book explores creative interaction and fraternal complicity between Picasso and the poet Guillaume Apollinaire (1880-1918) from 1905 to 1918. It shows how after Apollinaire's death Picasso continued to seek inspiration in the writer's work. The book thus offers authoritative discussion of Apollinaire's best poetry, prose and critical writing and opens unexpected pathways through Picasso's output from 1905 to 1973. Referring to archive documents, fully illustrated, the book throws new light on many individual works of art and literature and on the cultural and political context in which they were produced.
