French writer, a dada playwright, openly gay. He was the founder of several short-lived literary magazines during his turbulent life. His poetry was obsessed with death (his dad was a suicide) and fear of castration (as he vividly remembered his circumcision at age three).

Crevel's play "Le Coeur a Barbe," a dada spectacle in June, 1923 became a near riot when Andre Breton leapt on stage and broke de Massot's arm with a flow of his cane, a fight by surrealists who thought the movement was being taken over by homosexuals.

Crevel died of suicide 7/01/1935, Paris.
