    1. "Surrealism is the "invisible ray" which will one day enable us to win out over our opponents. "You are no longer trembling, carcass." This summer the roses are blue; the wood is of glass. The earth, draped in its verdant cloak, makes as little impression upon me as a ghost. It is living and ceasing to live that are imaginary solutions. Existence is elsewhere."The Surrealist world is a beautiful place: houses with eggshell roofs, a half-fried egg for a sun hanging from the sky, birds flying and [...]


    2. Nowhere near the transcendence of Nadja, this is something best left to historical researchers of surrealism. I'd read the first manifesto before, and it was indeed the sort of thing that gets you thinking, but the rest was mostly dull. Which is a shame, given that some of the high-water marks of literature and the visual arts have been accomplished under these banners. Oh, and as for the long prose-y- poem-y thingy in the middle, "Soluble Fish," it starts off interesting, but as it goes on it d [...]


    3. Surrealism, as explained by Andre Breton is simply the merging of dreams with reality, specifically in art but also in all aspects of life imagination is to be a person’s greatest quality. Breton argues there is no reason to make ordinary boring art that reflects reality and doing so would be to push away the subconscious which is what drives us in our everyday lives. He goes further to say that having a “realistic attitude” is equivalent to being “hostile to any intellectual or moral ad [...]


    4. مانيفست سوررئاليسم رو آندره برتون نوشته. قشنگ نوشته شده. شورانگيزه و يه سخنرانى تمام عياره. مخصوصا كه شوخ طبعى و بامزه بازى هم درش هست. البته نتونست منو سوررئاليست كنه ولى از خوندنش لذت بردم. صادقانه بگم برتون اينو خيلى از رمانش ناديا بهتر نوشته. مخصوصا شروع خيلى زيبا و نفس گير [...]


    5. striking a spark from two images; longer spark from rarer gases gives greater fugue "desired suddenness from certain associations" (41, first Manifesto)series of events run parallel to real events; our ideals & expectations & revisions as we live"In the final analysis, it's not such a bad thing for these images to upset the mind, for to upset the mind is to put it in the wrong." (39)"Surrealism, such as I conceive of it, asserts our complete nonconformism clearly enough so that there can [...]


    6. Lu le Manifeste du Surréalisme de 1924: intéressant, bien que j'aie parfois eu l'impression qu'il laissait aller sa pensée et en perdait quelque peu le fil de son exposé auquel il se raccrochait ensuite tant bien que mal. J'ai surtout apprécié lire la façon dont il a "découvert" l'écriture automatique et ses conseils à ceux qui voudraient s'y essayer. Ce qui m'a déplu, surtout au début, est son ton de "juge" face à l'attitude réaliste: j'ai lu plusieurs manifestes et, même en s'op [...]


    7. I have been rereading this with my students and I find much to enjoy here. Sometimes Breton is a blowhard, sure, but isn't that part of the pleasure? The "Before/After" section is priceless in that regard. But sometimes Breton speaks good sense, as when he defends the free practice of art as against ideology to a conference of the communist party.



    8. These manifestos lay out the politics of the movement better than any of Breton's interpreters, who keep proliferating the cliched that he was "the pop of surrealism."


    9. Ajatuksen vapaus, lapsen mieli, unet, logiikan ja kausaliteettien toissijaisuus, arkirealismin pintapuolisuus, Freud, kuvaileva kirjallisuus on blaah. Alkoi kirjallisena liikkeenä."Kun ihminen lakkaa nukkumasta, hän on ennen muuta muistinsa leikkikalu"Unet leikkikenttiä ihmisen vapautumiseen, tosiasioiksi määritellyt asiat rajoittavat (ovat vain määrittelyjä, sopimuksia). Ihme ja mielikuvitus! "Minä uskon, että tulevaisuudessa nämä kaksi tilaa, uni ja todellisuus, jotka ovat näköj [...]



    10. Surrealism - the attempt at freeing language unto the openness of its possibilities, which entails the transformation of humanity outside of itself. In "On Surrealism in its Living Works," Breton writes how Surrealism seeks "nothing less than the rediscovery of the secret of a language whose elements would then cease to float like jetsam on the surface of a dead sea.To do this it [is] essential to wrest these elements away from their increasingly narrow utilitarian usage, this being the only way [...]


    11. "The simplest Surrealist act consists of dashing down into the street, pistol in hand, and firing blindly, as fast as you can pull the trigger, into the crowd." (Second Manifesto of Surrealism, 1930) Regardless of any political controversy concerning the Manifesto of Surrealism (1929)-- ignoring the countless pros and cons argued among pseudo-surrealists, academic dabblers, and bourgeois journalists, regarding its validity-- it is obvious that, independent of this controversy and bad press ("The [...]


    12. Beloved imagination, what I most like in you is your unsparing quality.There remains madness, "the madness that one locks up," as it has aptly been described. That madness or another…. We all know, in fact, that the insane owe their incarceration to a tiny number of legally reprehensible acts and that, were it not for these acts their freedom (or what we see as their freedom) would not be threatened. I am willing to admit that they are, to some degree, victims of their imagination, in that it [...]


    13. Le surréalisme, comme le romantisme, c’est la manifestation d’un désespoir qui n’est pas suffisamment naïf pour trouver son refuge et sa consolation dans l’atmosphère artistique, mais qui ne pousse pas suffisamment la réflexion existentielle au point d’en sortir et va plutôt tenter de tout y faire entrer. Alors que l’immédiat artistique atteint son paroxysme lorsque s’impose magistralement la réalité d’une image originale qu’un individu exceptionnel parvient à extéri [...]


    14. Mr. Breton,Sure, you had a wonderful grasp on the inner workings of the movement; and at times your descriptions of its purpose were Sublime. But this was supposed to be a Manifesto, not a rant. Stop being so goddamn childish. Prove that it deserves to be taken seriously, don't complain that it hasn't been. On another note, your precious movement still produces some of the best art in the world, when done right. However, it's mostly been bastardized by people who think Surrealism equates to unre [...]


    15. بخش هایی از این کتاب سال ها پیش توسط رضا سید حسینی به فارسی ترجمه شده استتا چند روز پیش (سپتامبر 2007) نمی دانستم که این کتاب به تمامی توسط عبدالله کوثری ترجمه شده. در بین کتاب های تازه ای که به همت دوستی نازنین برایم رسیده، این ترجمه که چند سال پیش چاپ شده، برایم جالب بود. این سرگذ [...]


    16. This greatly colored my perception of art. The best art manifesto I've ever read.(Oddly, the surrealist concept seems to work in many of the visual fields, but not lit. God, did it fail in writing. Doesn't hold up well in narrative.)Also, oddly, I felt that the first fully-realized surrealist film came decades later, and was not generally seen as part of the movement, but in my opinion, that's what it was at heart: Baz Luhrmann's "Moulin Rouge!" This is what Dali and Bunel were shooting for, nev [...]


    17. Already the title obstructs me. That inevitably returns to Marx and manifesto of the Communist party. The general tone is of the same order. The proximity of surrealist with the Russian revolution is known.I read it at the high school. Immediately surrealism appealed to me but I did not understand why its emblême was a dusty text, tedious and bureaucratic. The movement was not long in bursting in vaults which were hated and excommunicated. Thus as opposed to what, I think that the interest of t [...]


    18. the first one is brilliantthe second one refines this brilliance to some degree but is also intellectually bogged down by a lot of invective about people Breton got into fights with. less a refining than a defense of his initial ideas"soluble fish" has a passing beauty to it but is impossible to finishthe third one dips into conspiracy theorist rangeif breton's "manifestoes" proves anything above all else, it's that any idea, no matter how interesting, becomes incredibly uninteresting upon conta [...]


    19. Wie bei (fast) jeder vorhergehenden Unilektüre, hab ich auch dieses Werk (noch) nicht ganz gelesen.Es war ein wenig mühsam und entweder weicht mein Hirn langsam auf oder der Mensch drückt sich zu kompliziert aus. Vieles hab ich irgendwie nicht richtig erfassen können und somit nicht verstehen können. Für meine Hausarbeit werde ich aber meine Nase nochmal in das Buch stecken müssen. Aber erstmal gönn ich mir ein paar Tage Weihnachtsferien ohne Unikram :)


    20. A necessary read for those interested in Surrealism. There is just as much clear and beautiful writing in this book as there are confusing paragraph long sentences. Brenton's mind is quite evidently a fascinating place. Worth sorting out what is relevant to today versus what mattered in precisely the years he wrote to/about.


    21. Le Manifeste du surréalisme de 1924 est très intéressant pour comprendre l'origine du mouvement et de sa création. Néanmoins, c'est un mouvement qui a connu aussi de nombreuses dissensions, ce qui se ressent dans le Manifeste du surréalisme de 1930 avec les critiques de Breton contre les artistes qui se sont positionnés en rupture.


    22. Whether Breton is to receive the largest thanks or not, due to a microcosm of zeitgeist, Surrealism has a name, a credo, edicts, catalogued respiration, and beautiful folly. May yachts grow complex, adulterous, arch, and silly personalities as we inaugurate the next 1,326 years in random order. Thanks!


    23. Ce livre est, à coup sûr, le livre le plus décevant que j'ai jamais lu.André Breton y explique finalement fort peu la théorie du surréalisme, et la diversité de ses pratiques. Il se contente de formuler dans ses deux manifestes un ramassis de détails, de conflits de personne et de basses informations. Ceci sans compter les notes de bas de page, d'une longueur proprement interminable.


    24. addressed only as Goku in mute swans are not native to the Kromme Rijn (Crooked Rhine) branches off, and an internet tutoring utility for learning and practicing its feminine form and everything else.


    25. While the first manifesto and automatic writing examples are entertaining, the name calling and attempts to act as if an artistic movement was Breton's pet movement to control totally expose him as a colossal humbug.


    26. the prose pieces are grating and often pointless but his essays and commentaries are interesting and mildly enlightening. plus, this edition is gorgeously printed in a newspaper-like style with artistic fonts and blotchy over-inked transition graphics that bring to mind iron embroidery.


    27. Anyone studying Surrealism or Dada must read this book. It is after all the manifesto. Thank you Elizabeth Robinson for teaching a wonderful class that not only introduced me to this book, but most importantly to Leonora Carrington.


    28. Lu le premier manifeste uniquement. Intéressant, pas toujours tout compris (Breton a tendance à se répéter de manière plus ou moins claire à mon goût). Et on voit bien qu'il imagine des implications révolutionnaires au-delà de l'art comme ces crimes commis en "actes automatiques".
