Farewell and a Handkerchief--Poems from the Road is a collection that reflects on the month-long travels of Czech poet V tězslav Nezval through Vienna, Paris, southern France, and Italy. During this journey, on May 9, 1933, Nezval had a chance encounter with two of the surrealist movement's most influential poets--Andr Breton and Paul luard--while sitting at the Cardinal Caf on the Grands Boulevards in Paris, a meeting that proved transformative. After returning home, Nezval helped found the Czech Surrealist Group, along with Karel Teige, Jindřich St rsk , and Toyen. It became the only official group of its kind outside of France.
