About J.V. Foix's Daybook 1918: Early Fragments, Venuti's translation prize-winning book, published by Northwestern University Press:

"Foix's Daybook 1918 is the least-known but perhaps finest example of surrealist prose poem. Partially inspired by Apollinaire and Breton, Foix took surrealist imagination to places only dared by his friend Dalí. Reading this book is an absoute must for anybody interested in European avant-garde literature and aesthetics." –Enri Bou, author of Daliccionario: Objetos, Mitos y Simbolos de Salvador Dalí.

Presented by the Global Humanities Research Workshop of the Kaplan Humanities Institute and Buffett Institute for Global Affairs.
