Praise

“The Surrealists’ absolute refusal to accommodate themselves to the values of colonial Europe aroused the admiration of poets and intellectuals in the French-speaking Caribbean who were leading the resistance to political and cultural suppression. Their encounters are brought vividly to life in these texts by writers whose candid and often fierce debates … are no less relevant today than they were then.”—Professor Dawn Ades, University of Essex

Refusal of the Shadow offers a powerful reminder that there is still much to learn about the complexities of colonialism and its political and cultural negation. There can be no doubt that this invaluable anthology will transform how surrealism is understood. Beyond that, it commands attention for placing Caribbean sensibilities back at the centre of European accounts of modernism’s unfolding.”—Professor Paul Gilroy, author of The Black Atlantic
