Surrealism: The Road to the Absolute
Dutton | 1970 | ISBN: 0525051031 | English | 258 pages | PDF | 20.8 MB
First published in 1959, and recognized as an invaluable study in its field, is a richly informed exposition of, and apologia for, surrealist theory and practice. The objective of surrealism was the infinite expansion of reality as a substitute for the previously accepted dichotomy between the real and the imaginary. Acknowledging the human need for metaphysical release, the surrealists believed that through the exploration of the psyche, through the cultivation of the miracles of objective chance, through the mystique of eroticism, through the diverting of objects from their familiar functions or surroundings, through a more cosmic perspective of life on this earth, and finally through the alchemy of language that would learn to express this more dynamic reality, man might be able to satisfy his thirst for the absolute within the confines of his counted number of heartbeats.
