One thought on “4 Dada Suicides: Selected Texts of Arthur Cravan, Jacques Rigaut, Julien Torma, and Jacques Vaché

  1. Tosh

    When suicide was an artform of some sort These four nutty and wonderful poets had the flair of looking at death s door and thinking hmmm, why not Arthur Cravan is a film in the making A prize fighter, a nephew of Oscar Wilde, hardcore trouble maker, legendary poet writer and a guy who went off to the sea by himself The others are just as dramatic And can they all write Yeah, they can and they do it well DADA is and was a beautiful moment in the arts.

  2. Andrew

    I wish that someone would discover a trunkful of unpublished Arthur Cravan texts Or that there would be a massive biography devoted to his exploits This will have to do in the meantime Essential reading.

  3. Paul Osgerby

    The biographies of these artists is interesting than the their writings But their letters, essays, etc allow a glimpse into their personalities.Most interesting characters Cravan and RigautBest writings Torma and Vache

  4. Sean

    While the title of this impressive volume is an arresting one, it s somewhat of a misnomer for a couple of reasons First, only one of these fellows can properly be called a Dadaist That would be Jacques Rigaut, though even he is said to have spent time on the sidelines than actively participating The others either prefigured Dadaism or were only loosely associated with it However, their lives came to embody the spirit of Dadaism, perhaps even so than its later proponents Second, only one of th [...]

  5. Matthew

    Quite an amazing anthology here The book takes writings from four poets writers tied to the Dada movements and looks at them through the lens of suicide They discuss suicide in ways normal to the bizarre, where the act of suicide is a form of poetry and theatre in it s own right Unlike so many other anthologies of Dada writings, this one really holds together as a whole, largely because of the theme Each set of writings is introduced by an essay that is scholarly in quality but still quite reada [...]

  6. Phil

    I really enjoyed this collection The biographies at the start of each section are fantastic, drawing from personal accounts of subsequent writers of that time Although some of the anti art pieces begin to lose their effect when drawn out for too long, the euphorisms of torma and fragments from Rigaut are brilliant Even though I love Tzara these men are important to read to really feel Dada before it became the secularized and thus self defeating image that it gets portrayed as retrospectively.

  7. Gary Cummiskey

    This book gets 5 out of 5 from me The only quibble I have is with the title Of the four writers represented, only one of them Riguat was a confirmed suicide Vache s death might have been an accidental overdose, while Cravan and Torma disappeared Even then there is speculation that Cravan resurfaced in the 1920s during which he posed as Andre Gide s secretary while trying to con people into buying forged Oscar Wilde manuscripts and there is also speculation Torma never even existed

  8. tENTATIVELY, cONVENIENCE

    Suicide on the lunatic fringe A subject dear to my wrists arms legs I always hope that the most talented, the most sensitive, will make it live a long happy life But sometimes the odds seem against it Esp as the robopathic society supresses the individual Here are 4 who gave the big fuck you to what passes as life.

    I remember that I read this, and i remember thinking it was fun, but I can t remember anything than that and the one quote i used to have on my bulletin board that Cravan had written.
