PQ on surrealist art
I've been trying to get caught up on some of the blog posts I've missed recently, so I read PQ's latest, "A Drought-Ending Inundation of Art." It's about Surrealist art, and the fact is, I love Surrealist art and always hope to find some when I walk into an art museum. You can also read about the book Peter is working on.
If Peter wants to tackle some Surrealist writing, I strongly recommend English and American Surrealist Poetry, edited by Edward Germain. That's how I discovered a poet I've long been interested in named Charles Henri Ford. The above is one of Ford's "collage poems" from the 1960s, which I reproduced because I needed something visual, although in point of fact, I prefer Ford's 1930s and 1940s work,
