I really enjoyed this collection. The biographies at the start of each section are fantastic, drawing from personal accounts of subsequent writers of that time. Although some of the "anti-art" pieces begin to lose their effect when drawn out for too long, the euphorisms of torma and fragments from Rigaut are brilliant. Even though I love Tzara these men are important to read to really feel Dada before it became the secularized (and thus self defeating) image that it gets portrayed as retrospectively. ( )
