The famous French writer Louis Aragon (1897-1982) was an important political and cultural figure in 20th century France. Involved in the Dada-movement, member of the French Communist party, he was a friend of both André Breton, Paul Élouard and Philippe Soupault, with whom he founded Surrealism and the review "Littérature" (with Breton and Soupault). His works are monuments of the principal trends of 20th century thought and politics, and his literary theories were of great impact.
