Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Born Wilhelm de Kostrowitsky, the illegitimate son of a Russian Polish woman and a Vatican nobleman, Apollinaire was a champion of the avant-garde in French poetry and had enormous influence on the international avant-garde despite dying young at age 38 of Asian flu and a head wound sustained in the trenches during World War I. Organizing his material well, Bohn foreign languages, Illinois State Univ. details Apollinaire's international influence on poets and literary movements in several regions, specifically Great Britain, North and South America, Germany, Catalonia, Spain, and Mexico. Bohn acknowledges that Apollinaire's influence did not extend beyond his lifetime, except in Latin America, where his influence prevailed until 1930. Bohn's analysis should prove an invaluable resource to all scholars of avant-garde literature.-Robert T. Ivey, Univ. of Memphis
Examines Guillaume Apollinaire's literary and artistic reception by and influence on members of the European and American avant-gardes from 1900 to 1920 in Europe and American and through 1930 in Latin America, identifying and reconstructing major literary and art historical paths of development and presenting previously unknown documents by the poet.
