A Surrealist Bookshelf

Founding Surrealist André Breton defined Surrealism as “pure psychic automatism, by which an attempt is made to express, either verbally, in writing or in any other manner, the true functioning of thought. The dictation of thought, in the absence of all control by reason, excluding any aesthetic or moral preoccupation.” To these supra-rational ends, the Surrealist artists and poets pioneered and developed new techniques that ramified across all of the arts, from poetry to painting to cinema. This library collects some of the most essential texts and surveys on the movement.
