With Breton and Soupault he founded a journal that became the voice of Paris Dadaism and subsequently the surrealistic movement. He broke with the surrealists in 1932 after falling in love with Russian-born novelist Elsa Troilet, then devotedly served the communist party. In 1937 he was appointed editor of the party newspaper.
