The texts in this volume by the leader of the Belgian section of the Surrealist movement were selected by his old friend and co-conspirator Marcel MariŽn a few months before the latter’s recent death. MariŽn, however, was more than just a colleague of Nougť’s, most of Nougť’s writings first saw print in MariŽn’s magazine Les LŤvres nues (12 issues between 1954 and 1958) and later appeared in books bearing the same publishing imprint. MariŽn’s selection was hardly representative! - no theoretical or political texts, and only one poem. His introduction stresses Nougť’s predeliction for re-writing other authors’ works (as exemplified in the longest text included here), a form of plagiarism promoted by the Situationists as dťtournement, and the writings of Debord, Wolman et al., including their essay on this particular method, also made their first appearances in the pages of Les LŤvres nues.
