Benjamin Péret & Yves Tanguy

Out of print.

Illustrated by Yves Tanguy, translated by James Brook.

The complete text of this work was first published under the pseudonym of Satyremont by Eric Losfeld in 1954. the book’s cover bore the title Les Rouilles encagées (Encaged Rust); the title page, however, read Les Couilles enragées (Mad Balls). Many of the poems in the book had previously appeared in a joint work written by Aragon and Péret entitled 1929, which was published in that year. Péret wrote the text in 1928, and it is likely that it was intended to be the final volume of an unholy trinity of clandestine Surrealist works of fiction dealing with the themes of eroticism and violence, along with Louis Aragon’s Irene’s Cunt and Georges Bataille’s The Story of the Eye, both published in that year.
