Summary From a review by Christophe Wall-Romana in Symposium: A Quarterly Journal in Modern Literatures: “Dickow’s book faces a tall order: revisiting three canonical figures who reoriented poetry in French between the turn of the twentieth century and the end of World War I: Italian-Polish-French Guillaume Apollinaire, Jewish-French Max Jacob, and Swiss Blaise Cendrars. Dickow keenly justifies his choice by pointing to the complex friendship, exchanges, and competition linking them and the fact that all three were ‘foreigners in the broad sense.’”
