Sample text

Who is not? And who is to say who is and who is not a surrealist? Neither silly nor simple, these questions are vital for anyone who wants to know the truth about surrealism. Critics who attempt to define the movement in aesthetic or literary terms, as a "style" or a "school," overlook the crucial fact that surrealism is above all "a community of ethical views," as Toyen put it in a statement included in this collection. In the mass media incomprehension of surrealism goes even further. Especially since the 1 950s the word has suffered constant misuse at the hands of journalists and others who specialize in devaluing language.
