A Short Survey of Surrealism.
This book is consider the ancestor of surrealism, and having been written in the s was way ahead of its time. Caantos feeble, how ungainly man seems when compared to this creature, how unlike a God. Mixed in with rebellion against man and God, I can see why this may suit those of a younger audience, mixed with similar feelings.
Moreover, he openly enjoys these activities, so that the book reads like an ode to cruelty and sadism. Other anecdotes are more directly pertinent to the work. It is an ode to his hatred of humanity but still has a soft side.
He is swift and agile madness, with the skin of an elephant and teeth like the sharpest shards of glass. Children, one assumes because they are representative of innocence and purity, are paid special attention, with Maldoror extolling the pleasures of abusing and then freeing them, so that one is seen as both cantso torturer and their saviour.
In the future, I plan to skip anything published by Solar Books, if only out of spite. Hogs, when they look at me, vomit. I thought only Led Zeppelin groupies did that. I can imagine the shock of a 19th century reader.

He tortures and kills male children, cuts up people after murdering them, shoots swimmers escaping from a shipwreck, disses god almighty himself, even spying on god while lovemaking which actually isn’t as interesting as it sounds – hint hint: Maldoror writes Mervyn a love letterrequesting to meet, and Mervyn replies and accepts. My rating, therefore, has been reduced accordingly.
Now, years later, I’ve revisited it: Write a customer review. Read more Read less. Nevertheless, I found myself making my maldpror anachronistic comparisons: When I was at university, a TA in one of my poetry courses gave me this book and I was completely fascinated by it.

I don’t know how to explain it but if your into experimental lit or act like you are on alternate Tuesdays and Thursdays like I do then you really should check this out. This notion however is a superficial comprehension, prompted no doubt by Breton’s initial emphasis on automatic writing as the main route toward a higher reality.
The best example of this is when Maldoror is watching a ship sink and delights in the forthcoming annihilation of the crew and passengers. To be fair, there are sections throughout this text are truly transcendent or even beautiful. I think this book is the work of a juvenile, or perhaps a schizophrenic, mind – intelligent and educated, but juvenile, a young man playing at being a 19th-century male goth; or he was simply unable to control the fantasies and images which may have been assaulting him.
