Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Louis Scutenaire (29 June 1905 - 15 August 1987) was a poet, anarchist, surrealist and civil servant. Born Jean mile Louis Scutenaire in Ollignies, Belgium; died in Brussels. Louis Scutenaire is chiefly remembered as a central figure in the Belgian Surrealist movement, along with Ren Magritte, Paul Noug, Marcel Lecomte and his own wife Ir ne Hamoir. He studied law at the Free University of Brussels (now split into the Universit Libre de Bruxelles and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel) and was a criminal lawyer from 1931 to 1944. In 1926 he discovered surrealism and was a primary contributor to the Revue surr aliste. He was sympathetic to Communism during the 1930s and 1940s but as the truth about the Stalin regime became more apparent, he grew disenchanted with it and became an anarchist. After the Second World War he became a civil servant in the Belgian Ministry of the Interior, a job he kept for the rest of his life.show more
