But getting caught up in external Pataphysical meaning, historical or constructed, really interrupts that freedom. You are commenting using your Facebook account.

Shelves: 20th-century I was sadly disappointed by this book. I had high expectations, but found the reading experience largely tedious. It has produced a significant conflict within me. That is, I aimed to write without any I was sadly disappointed by this book. That is, I aimed to write without any concern for practicality of execution, without forcing the work to make any degree of sense, and without meeting any definition of what such a work should accomplish.
I found the results satisfying, though the final text remains secreted on a metaphorical shelf, hidden from prying eyes. Point Two: I also generally believe that an artist should be entirely uncompromising, and thus should not give any regard to audience. In this book, Exploits, etc. He is also entirely uncompromising. So, I should like the result, right? Or else I should question my own principals, perhaps? Well, no. In fact, I think I will enjoy this book more in retrospect than I did while in the process of actually reading it.
Only time will tell. In the case of that film, I profoundly disliked watching it, and it irked me greatly Well, hummm Faustroll is not "surrealism," but it may be regarded as a sort of proto-surrealism, as the surrealists were inspired by Jarry and his works. Anyway, if we see "surrealism" as, not a gimmick, but an alternative way, then there could be as many--or more!
So the point is, not all "odd" books are of a class. They can widely vary in degree of accomplishment and in what they attempt to achieve. But critiquing them can be a pain in the ass, and evaluation can be an aesthetic judgment that does not readily lend itself to the conventional terms used in critiquing conventional works.
I say this despite the fact that this book reminds me of me far more than I enjoy having to admit.
