Aragon (Spanish and Aragonese: Aragón; Catalan: Aragó) is an autonomous community of north-eastern Spain.
Aragon is bounded on the north by France, on the east by Catalonia, on the south by Valencia, and on the west by Castile-La Mancha, Castile-Leon, La Rioja, and Navarre (Spanish: Navarra).
The dynastic union of Castile and Aragon in 1479, when Ferdinand II of Aragon wed Isabella I of Castile, led to the formal creation of Spain as a single entity in 1516.

Labeled "The Couple" by the press in the 50's and 60's, Aragon (1897-1982) and Triolet (1896-1970) were at the center of the French Intellectual movement for almost 30 years, during which time France was grappling with the most charged issues of the 20th Century--World War, de-Stalinization and the Cold War.

Aragon and Triolet were led by their unconditional loyalty to the Communist Party to deny, misrepresent or even justify the repressive nature of the totalitarian regimes of the Eastern bloc.

Aragon, already secretly planning a book-length portrait, banked on being cunning enough to outwit his subject 'by indirect means', but Matisse proved too much for him.
Aragon was of course also living provisionally under surveillance, tailed by the police, expecting arrest, several times forced to switch lodgings, possessing no papers with a hide-out prepared for the moment when he would have to flee.
Aragon was 71 years old, the same age as Matisse had been at their first meeting, when he completed his book in 1968.

 Louis Aragon
Aragon tired to create a new kind of novel "that would break all the traditional rules governing the writing of fiction, one that would be neither a narrative (a story) nor a character study (a portrait)..." The work celebrated the city as a place of stimulating encounters in its cafés and parks.
Aragon sought to interweave the individual destinies of his characters, his sense of place and eye for the telling detail, with the broader lines of the Marxist interpretation of history.
Aragon thanked the party leaders for their rebuke and printed excerpts from the outraged letters sent from the different Communist cells.

 la rue   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Aragon proposes a new urban mythology, arguing that mystery and beauty can be found in the mundane and the everyday—in streetsigns, in billboards, or in café menus.
The park is romanesque with steep terraces and a man-made lake complete with an island at its center and a "Bridge of Suicides." Aragon attempts to recreate with his prose the mood of these dramatic settings.
Aragon did not want simply to describe urban Paris, but rather to create a certain poetry of place.

Aragon takes us through a special guided tour of Paris--not the Paris as we know it with its Eiffel Tower and other famous landmarks, but a Paris of crumbling arcades, dilapidated shopfronts and suburban parks.
Aragon imbues the detritus of the city with poetry and magic, and shows us how the surrealist spirit lives in the outmoded structures of civilization.
His ode to the Passage de l'Opera, at that time threatened by Baron Haussmann's plans for the redevelopment of the city, is a tacit challenge to the rapaciousness of capitalism and modernization, with its quest for the ever-new and its destruction of the past.

Louis Aragon (1897-1982) published the most enchanting of all surrealist novels, translated as "Paris Peasant," in 1924.
Aragon is harsh and yet decisive in his uncompromising judgment of what is obsolete and what is not with respect to the surrealist revolution, and his denunciation of 'automatic writing' as poetry is right on the mark.

 aragon.html
Aragon’s 1922 novel boldly appropriates the title and plot of a didactic 17th-century epic, recounting the adventures of Odysseus’ son Telemachus; but the moralistic underpinnings of the original are replaced by a Surrealist’s dedication to the strange, the beautiful, and the erotic.
Though a classic of Surrealism, this is not automatic writing; on the contrary, it is a wryly self-conscious book, full of the kinds of intertextual games associated with writers such as Borges and Calvino.
As the Huberts comment in their Introduction, "Aragon did not have to liberate his mind through automatic exercises; but by mastering and playing with the narrative… he succeeded in freeing himself from the constraints of mimeticism… descend[ing] into the diabolical nirvana of dada."

 Aragon, Louis
L'année même où paraissait le premier Manifeste de Breton, Aragon exposa sa propre conception du surréalisme dans un texte théorique (Une vague de rêve, 1924), prônant le "merveilleux quotidien", issu de la rencontre de l'imaginaire avec le réel, et se révélant spécialement attentif au problème de la description littéraire (le Paysan de Paris, 1926).
En 1927, Aragon adhéra au Parti communiste, et rompu avec le surréalisme en 1932.
Mobilisé en 1939, Aragon rejoignit le Parti communiste, devenu clandestin en 1941, et organisa un réseau de résistance en zone sud.

 French Culture | Books | Paris Peasant by Louis Aragon Contest   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Paris Peasant (Le Paysan de Paris, 1926) is one of the central works of Surrealism, a work that helps define the movement itself; yet this is the first U.S. publication of Simon Watson Taylor's authoritative 1971 translation, completed after consultations with the author.
The book uses the city of Paris as a framework, and Aragon interlaces his text with the city's ephemera: café menus, maps, inscriptions on monuments, newspaper clippings, as well as the lives of its citizens.
A detailed description of a Parisian arcade passage, nineteenth-century precursor to the mini-mall, and another of the Buttes-Chaumont park, are the great set pieces within Aragon's swirling prose of philosophy, dream, and satire.
