Scope and Contents This well illustrated book provides the definitive review of Hoffmeister's works and his life.According to John Vloemans (internet)" Adolf Hoffmeister was undoubtedly one of the most pittoresque figures of the intellectual and artistic scene in Prague during the interbellum. His was a restless and unconventional spirit, that could not be classified. He was born on August 15, 1902 in Prague into a well-to-do family. Adolf Hoffmeister was described as an elegant globetrotter and art connoisseur, a gourmand,who had a special bond with the magic power of his hometown Prague. He was at once a painter, caricaturist, illustrator, stage decorator, author, playwright,translator, journalist, radio reporter, professor of art, art critic, politician,diplomat, cultural ambassador and world traveller.

Scope and Contents Dr. Bohn writes that this "study seeks to analyze Guillaume Apollinaire's literary and artistic reception by members of the European and American avant-gardes during the early twentieth century...tracing the impact of Apollinaire's ideas as they radiated outward in increasingly larger circles from Paris...limiting the period to 1920 in Europe and 1930 in Latin America...and restricting the study to the avant garde of the major European and American nations."Bohn reviews the close relation and influence of Apollinaire to Mario de Zayas, his "calligrammes" or concrete poems as they would be denoted today, in the periodical, 291. Further, he points out that Apollinaire was first recognized in America because of 291. This book is heavily slanted to the influence of Apollinaire on Spanish and Latin American poets. Indeed, Bohn lucidly reviews the works of some obscure (to Americans) Latin American visual poets like the Mexican, Juan Tablada. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth...
