It appears that this entire article has been copied and pasted from http://www.arthistoryclub.com/art_history/Paul_Eluard which is a website which appears to have commercial motives and claims that "we are not in the position to, nor have we verified the accuracy, completeness or correctness of any information contained on this website" this is written on http://www.arthistoryclub.com/copyright.html
This seems to be
b) not in the wiki spirit
- I've added a few extra sentences to the original text - there seem to be better biographies (see external links) available, but I am not sure about copyright. DeadMansShoes 16:04, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
I AM SINCERELY DISAPPOINTED TO FIND NO REFERENCE TO EVEN THE EXISTENCE OF PAUL ELUARD's POEM "LE MONDE EST BLEU COMME UNE ORANGE" ("THE WORLD IS AS BLUE AS AN ORANGE"). I CAN'T HELP BUT WONDER WHY THAT MIGHT BE.
- I have added a link with translation, but I can't help wonder why you wonder why that might be!

There are portraits of Eluard by both Picasso and Dali, it would be good to upload these links, but I believe they are still under copyright. Both can be found [here]

"There is another world, but it is in this one."
This line is quoted all over the internet, and equally attributed to W. B. Yeats and Paul Eluard. Can someone please identify the specific source, if they know it? I really do not want to mis-attribute this interesting quote.
Update: Ceoil has provided this link suggesting that the quote is not to be found in the Eluard bibliography: :
I suppose Yeats is now the more likely conceiver of this phrase,
The Importance of Being Ernst
important Dadaist cum surrealist was intimately involved with Eluard, entering into a menage a trois living arrangement with him and Gala upon Ernst's first move to France in 1922. It's all in the Ernst article, but thought it strange there was no mention of it here, when Breton et al. are named.
November 18 or 26?
The Wikipedia article says two different dates for his death. In the infobox, he is stated to have died on November 18, 1952. In the main body introduction, November 26, 1952 is stated as his date of death. In the main body about his later life, only the more vague assertion of November 1952 is broadcasted. I don't know enough about this guy to choose one date over the other, but could this contradiction be fixed so that the actual date of death can be posted? Thank you.
