Roussel was perhaps the most extraordinary writer of this century. His bizarre work (and eccentric lifestyle) have attracted enthusiastic critical responses from many of his most illustrious contemporaries, and he has been claimed as a precursor by authors associated with the Surrealists, Pataphysicians, Tel Quel, Semioticians, 'Post Structuralists', and the Oulipo. This collection presents for the first time in English four of his most important works: two plays, his final novel, and his most famous long poem.
