Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cultural Writing. Literary Criticism. What was living and what was dead in Surrealism? This collection responds to this question unequivocally, examining not only the artistic aspects of surrealism, but its political aspects. If there is any truth to the notion that the drowning see their whole life replayed before their eyes in a few short seconds, Surrealism may well be described as the last dream of a foundering culture. Jules-Fran'ois Dupuis was a pseudonym of the Belgian writer Raoul Veneigem, who was a leading light in the Situationist International. Translated by Donald Nicholson-Smith.

Synopsis:

A down-and-dirty survey of the surrealist movement written by leading situationist theorist Raoul Vaneigem. Vaneigem’s sketch bars no holds, blistering on surrealism’s artistic and political aporias, and packed with telling quotations, it gives respect where respect is due, shedding a great deal of light on situationist attitudes, negative and positive, towards their surrealist predecessors.
