Surrealist Poetry in English by Edward B. Germain (Editor), Various
Regular price $3.00
The surrealist movement was founded in France in 1924, brother of the anarchist Dada, heir of experiments in 19th century literature. In England, the movement arose as the logical evolution of 19th century literature's dominant concern - the psychopathology of the artist's mind. Being unconcerned with conventional morality, it had few affinities with the humanist tradition of literature and saw the classical tradition as antithetical to literature altogether. This book examines surrealist poetry in English literature.
