Letter to Paul and Gala Eluard, 17 Oct. 1928.

Crevel praises the title Eluard proposed for a Crevel work,Êtes-vous fous? (subsequently published in 1929). In the remainder of the letter Crevel ranges over a number of topics and moods, including a long description of a consultation with a fortune-teller, and his critiques of contemporary artists and writers: Gide about whose writing Crevel expresses reservations; Barrès (Maurice?), who inspires him, and Max Ernst whose new work Crevel declares magnificent.
