Surrealist Cosmology: André Breton and Astrology

Nicholas Campion

Abstract
The influence of significant strands of late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century esoteric thought on the surrealist movement has often been noted, though has been little studied. Part 1 of this paper summarises current opinions on the esoteric interests of the surrealists in general and André Breton in particular. Part 2 includes an interview with Breton on astrology conducted by Jean Carteret and Roger Knare in 1954 and published in the French astrology journal L'Astrologue in 1968, reproduced by permission of André Barbaul
