Ir identifies and reconstructs major literary and art historical paths of development, about which surprisingly little is known. In particular, it discusses Apollinaires reception and formative influence in North America, England, Germany, Spain, Argentina, and Mexico, and includes important documents by Apollinaire himself that have not appeared in print until now.Bohn brings together a worldwide network of writers, artists, and critics to reveal the role and centrality of Apollinaire as the icon of Parisian modernism, cult figure of the avant-garde, poet with a new series of techniques, esthetician of the New, innovator of modern culture, and literary and cultural arbiter of his generation.This is Rezeptionsesthetik in its most intense form.

It is the definitive reference book for checking on who had any dealings with Apollinaire, the man or his work, and French modernism in English, German, Spanish or Catalan linguistic and cultural domains in both the Old and New Worlds. Bohns translations from the various languages he commands are superb and prove that he is always working from source material. His text is simply a tour de force, a virtuoso performance.

-- Seth L. Wolitz, University of Texas, AustinGiven the centrality of French poetry for European and New World poetry since Baudelaire, one simply cannot overstate Apollinaires role in the evolution of the most advanced poetry written throughout Europe and North and South America since circa 1900. However, no one before has tracked his impact on avant-garde circles outsideFrance with so much attention to the specifics involved. Bohn has emerged as the dean of Apollinaire studies in North America- thus everything he has to say about the poet has the ring of absolute authority.

-- Robert W. Greene, State University of New York, Albany
