French poet, novelist, essayist, journalist and communist. Prodigiously gifted with literary diversity, an output of more than 60 books over his 65-year career. With Breton and Soupault he founded a journal that became the voice of Paris Dadaism and subsequently the surrealistic movement. He broke with the surrealists in 1932 after falling in love with Russian-born novelist Elsa Troilet, then devotedly served the communist party. In 1937 he was appointed editor of the party newspaper. During French occupation, he was active in the intellectual resistance.

Died 24 December 1982, Paris.
