Description de l'ouvrage

4 juillet 1995
This delightful collection allows everyone to enjoy firsthand the provocative methods used by the artists and poets of the Surrealist school to break through conventional thought and behavior to a deeper truth. Invented and played by such artists as André Breton, Rene Magritte, and Max Ernst, these gems still produce results ranging from the hilarious to the mysterious and profound.

Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"Of great value to teachers, comedy writers and other problem-solvers, this is an illustrated compendium of ways to be inventive, humorous or absurd through irresponsibility or 'planned incongruity.'"— Ballast Quarterly Review

"This extraordinary collection of word games, visual tricks and intellectual assaults on the conventional is a treasure trove of the artistic and socio-linguistic conundrums which the Surrealists—Andre Breton, Tristan Tzara and their associates—cultivated from the 1920s onwards. Its compiler, Alastair Brotchie, is to be congratulated for salvaging such fascinating if recondite material from the various obscure journals in which it first appeared."— The Spectator

5.0 étoiles sur 5 And They All Wanted Pieces of the Mouse Deer's Eyes 9 mars 2011

Tie tie tie tie tie tie tie tie tie tired of boring writing? Purchase "A BOOK OF SURREALIST GAMES" and watch as your pathetic perception of the written word withers and dies at your bedside. This book not only was the inspiration for my first four tattoos, but also pushed me to become a writer, mathematician, ice cream vendor, artist, nudist, racist, chemist, and various other "ISTS." Spark only of the son of the morning when he's filled with mirror slice, robust blubber batter! Am always dark sheets matted seven? DAYTIME allows it to be so! Tomorrow is the daytime of our cereal porcelain, glance at the springs. Perfect gift for Christmas or the Day of Seven Tortoises. 3311`088eE332.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 neat lil' book. 15 décembre 1999
Par Char - Publié sur
Being an admirer and wanna-be creator of DaDa, I found this book amusing. The games were interesting and bizarre, there were lots of pictures, and a lot of artists were included. They are fun to read about and see the examples even if you have no intention of really trying them. "The Exquisite Corpse" and "Directions for Use" were 2 of the better ones, and they have examples by the original surrealists. The only problem I had with the book was that some of the directions were a little vague. For instance, the picture on page 71 is a double image, but it could have given some clue about how to actually find it - it became frustrating. The games are so unusual compared to what we normally think of as games that more detailed directions are essential. For instance, there are not obvious "winners" and "losers" in them, they are played for the sake of toying with reality and using imagination to create the unexpected. It's a fun book that's small enough to take with you all the time.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Delightful & thought-provoking 7 janvier 2009
Par William Timothy Lukeman - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Here's a slyly deceptive little volume, a perfect introduction to the Surrealist mindset. Why "deceptive," though? Because while all the games are fascinating & sometimes startling fun, the ideas they embody just might take hold of you ... which is all to the good, of course!

If you want to know more about Surrealism, but just want to dip your toes into those mysterious waters at first, this is as good a starting place as any you'll find. The ideas of surprising juxtapositions, unexpected connections, and the sense of freedom & revelation through absurdity & chance, are all demonstrated here. And if you enjoy this first taste, then you'll almost certainly want more ...

Recommended as both an unusual diversion & a window into another world!

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Whether your goal is surrealist literature, surrealist art, or just entertainment, this book is a great buy. Lots of games (some literary, some artistic), information about the surrealist movement itself and some of the key players, and a good bibliography for future reading.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Enough to inspure Brian Eno 16 septembre 2008
Par M. Broadstreet - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This was supposedly the inspiration behind Eno's card decks, and is a very useful tool in its own right. While I don't think you'd necessarily want to do the 'spiritualist' slanted activities that it outlines, if you're able to read between the lines and extrapolate to your own creative activities you'll find a lot of useful inspiration.
