Destiny of a great decadent
Roussel’s main literary output comprised the two novels Locus Solus and Impressions d’Afrique, adaptions of his fiction for theatre, the long poem Nouvelles Impressions d�Afrique, and a posthumously published work in which he set out to elucidate his abstruse compositional methods. Like Proust, Roussel paid for the publication of his books, and while his work invited either ridicule or neglect from the mainstream, it attracted serious attention from the surrealists, and in particular Breton, Dali and Duchamp.
