The Nature Of Surrealism
The Nature Of Surrealism
This is my first attempt to write about surrealism as opposed to writing something surrealist. Slanted, comatose panglossian sword a lad would be in appropriate querulousness. And so I   imagined Socrates asking some soi-disant expert, "What is the nature of Surrealism?"
Surrealism is a deeply trivial, absurdly serious artistic movement. Its father was a hobby horse and its mother was the human subconscious. As a literary movement it grew out of Dadaism which was anti fine art and anti rationalist aesthetics, having just witnessed the failure of the civilisation that revered such things on the battlefields of the First World War. Its leading lights were eccentrics like Isadore Ducasse,  
[Isidore Ducasse, the self-styled Comte de Lautréamont, was the first and foremost of Surrealism's literary precursors, inspiring them with such unexpected juxtapositions as "the chance encounter of an umbrella and a sewing machine on an operating table."]
