Overview

One of the countries most directly affected by surrealism was Spain, and this book traces the processes by which this influence reached Spain and was taken up by Spanish writers and artists. Mr Morris concentrates firstly on the French works which influenced the Spaniards, and secondly on the themes, motifs, moods and techniques which appeared as a result in Spanish and Catalan - principally poetry and other literature, but also painting and film. An important feature of the book is the inclusion of a substantial collection of documentary materials on surrealism in Spain, poems, lectures and other writings, in French, Spanish and Catalan. This material, much of it not easily available elsewhere, is essential to a full understanding of the effects of the movement in Spain. Spanish and Catalan verse quotations appear in the original language with a prose gloss at the foot of the page, whilst prose is given in translation.
