Philippe Soupault (1897–1990) was a prolific novelist and essayist. Founder of the review Littérature in 1919 (with André Breton and Louis Aragon), he was active in French Dada and a central figure of Surrealism in its early years, though eventually drifted away from the movement. His principal collections of poetry were published in a single volume by Grasset in 1973.
