The French writer was one of the founders of Surrealism. After becoming an active member of the French Communist Party in the early 1930s, he gradually left Dadaism and Surrealism behind. He not only wrote about social responsibility but also lived according to it. He fought Franco's troops in Spain and was a leading figure in the French resistance during World War II. Aragon's extensive work includes poetry, novels, essays, and translations of Lewis Caroll.
