Pierre Reverdy’s surrealistic tale Maison hantee was written in 1928 and first published in 1930. Andre Breton would later include it in a list of the ten books he would most like to take to a desert island. John Ashbery’s translation of this modern classic is part of his lifelong engagement with French literature – an engagement that has vitally informed his own work in poetry, literature and the arts.
