The Voyage of Horace Pirouelle

By Philippe Soupault. Introduction and translation by Justin Vicari.

A Rimbaudesque novella of wayward wanderlust and liberty from the cofounder of Surrealism

Conceived in a hospital bed in 1917 and written a few months later after his fateful encounter with Lautréamont’s Maldoror, Philippe Soupault’s novella The Voyage of Horace Pirouelle preceded the author’s involvement with Parisian Dada and the Surrealist movement he would later launch with his friends. Inspired by a schoolmate’s sudden departure for Greenland on a whim and his subsequent disappearance, Soupault imagines his alter ego’s adventures as entries in a journal both personal and fictional. Adopted by an Inuit tribe, Pirouelle drifts from one encounter to another, from one casual murder to another, until his life of liberty and spontaneity leads him to stasis at the edge of existence.
After taking an active part in French Dada, Philippe Soupault (1897–1990) cofounded the Surrealist movement with André Breton and Louis Aragon, and authored with Breton The Magnetic Fields, the first official Surrealist work. After being expelled from the movement for the crime of being “too literary,” he devoted his life to writing, travel, journalism and political activity (for which he was put in prison by the collaborationist Vichy government).
