THE SURREALISM READER: AN ANTHOLOGY OF IDEAS. Ed. by Dawn Ades et al. Tate Publishing, London, 2015. Published in the U.S.A. by University of Chicago Press. 368 pp. with 83 ills. 24 x 16 cm. LC 2015-30385 ISBN 9780226369969 In English.
Publisher's description: One of the most influential cultural movements of the past century, surrealism has been extensively studied within the framework of its contributions to art and literature -- but its pivotal role in the development of intellectual ideas, both political and philosophical, has yet to be fully explored. Featuring writings from the 1920s up to the late 1990s, this anthology -- the first of its kind in English -- finally reveals surrealism's diverse scope, its deep contributions to the history of ideas, and its profound implications for contemporary thought. Including essays by leading surrealists and other major writers on the movement, the volume addresses the key themes of identity, otherness, freedom and morality, and poetry. The texts uncover, among other things, the significance of surrealism for the antifascist and anticolonialist movements and the various manifestations of surrealism in the years after World War II.
