The Vice of Surrealism
Surrealism is above all a state of mind, it does not advocate formulas.
The most important point is to put oneself in the right frame of mind.
No Surrealist is in the world, or thinks of himself in the present, or
believes in the effectiveness of the mind as spur, the mind as guillotine,
the mind as judge, the mind as doctor, and he resolutely hopes to be
apart from the mind.
The Surrealist has judged the mind.
He has no feelings which are a part of himself, he does not recognize
any thought as his own. His thought does not fashion for him a world to
which he reasonably assents.
He despairs of attaining his own mind.
