Les Champs Magnetiques was written long before any surrealist manifesto had been published, and is regarded as the birth of surrealism. The book is the first experiment with ‘écriture automatique’, a literary technique borrowed from spiritualism and free association in psychoanalysis. The result is an enchanting and evocative collection of prose and poetry. written as in a trance by two young authors in just one week . According to Louis Aragon Breton and Soupault had grown into a two-headed writer. Magnetische Velden is dedicated to the dandy Jacques Vaché, who committed suicide at early age with an overdose of opium.
