Benjamin Peret, Death to the Pigs

Benjamin Peret, Death to the Pigs and Other Writings, translated and introduced by Rachel Stella (Atlas, 1998). This Atlas Press book is identical to the University of Nebraska press edition (except this cover is way cooler). Both editions seem to be out-of-print.

Blurbs from the back cover:

"Peret's oeuvre: the most original and savage of our era." -- Octavio Paz

"The greatest living poet." -- Paul Eluard (don't know when he wrote that one)

"Benjamin Peret is, for me, the Surrealist poet par excellence: a totally liberating and lucid inspiration which flows effortlessly and directly from its source and straight away re-creates a whole other world." -- Luis Bunuel
