Frédéric Louis Sauser (September 1, 1887January 21, 1961), better known as Blaise Cendrars, was a Swiss novelist and poet naturalized French in 1916. Blaise Cendrars openly declared his admiration for Gustave Le Rouge. His La Fin du Monde Filmée par l'Ange [The End Of The World Filmed By An Angel] (1919) and Moravagine (1926) are surrealist novels, the latter named after, and telling the story of, an evil madman whose crimes rival those of Fantômas, a character much appreciated by the Surrealists.
