About this title


For Surrealists the overriding concern of the creative act was to combine the objective and subjective experience of reality into one all-encompassing view transcending the logical and rational. The French word surrealisme translates literally as "above reality." This reach for what lies beyond sensory reality is the essence of surrealism, and that essence is revealed in this book. Not merely another historical survey of this significant cultural and art historical phenomenon, this book is an examination of the spirit of what became one of the two major traditions of early twentieth-century art.
