* The admiral is the main character of the simultaneous poem „L'amiral cherche une maison à louer” (The admiral looks for a house to rent), created and performed by Tristan Tzara, Richard Huelsenbeck and Marcel Janco at Cabaret Voltaire on 31st March 1916. A day after the premiere, Hugo Ball wrote in his diary: “All the styles of the last twenty years came together yesterday. In a typically compressed way, Tzara's poem shows the conflict of the vox humana with a world that threatens, ensnares, and destroys it, a world whose rhythm and noise are ineluctable”.
