Title: Alla scuola di scrittura dei Surrealisti: l'uso stravagante di frasi fatte
Authors: Helmich, Werner
Issue Date: 2006
Publisher: Padova, Studio Editoriale Gordini
Abstract: The French-speaking Surrealists created a new type of parodic and ludic aphorism by systematically modifying both popular and literary gnomic commonplaces in order to reveal their epistemic meaninglessness. These modifications are regarded as acts of moral and aesthetic trasgression, which is one of the central categories as surrealistic poetics. Since in the surrealistic overwritings the ridiculed commonplaces are still perceptible, as in a palimpsest, under the new texts, these overwritings paradoxically contrubute to the survival of the commonplaces and, moreover, lead to a better awareness of rhetorical and linguistic processes in everyday language.
