About this product
- DescriptionThe early surrealists attempted to create art directly from the unconscious, but the resulting art often reveals the stamp of its age. It is generally accepted that a certain macho sensibility prevailed within the movement, excluding queer sensibilities and reducing women to object status. In startling new readings of Breton, Bataille, Cocteau, Artaud, Crevel and others, Justin Vicari examines the intersections between surrealism and mental illness, deploying an interdisciplinary approach, which includes aesthetic theory, radical politics, and psychoanalysis. Of particular interest is the representation of the ideal woman as t only sexually available but mentally ill, a hysteric muse representing a kind of authenticity lost in modern life.
- Author BiographyJustin Vicari is an award-winning poet, essayist and film writer. He lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
