André Breton (February 18, 1896 - 1966) was a French poet and author, author of the Surrealist manifesto of 1924, in which he defined surrealism as pure psychic automatism.

He was born at Tinchebray[?] (Orne) in Normandy and joined the Dadaist movement in 1916.

In 1919 he and Philippe Soupault[?] produced the first volume of automatic writing, Les Champs Magnetiques[?].

He later joined the Surrealists and was editor of La revolution surrealiste from 1924. His works include a novel, Nadja[?] (1928).
