jan 2, 1846 - Lautréamont

Description:

Isidore Ducasse, the self-styled Comte de Lautréamont, was the first and foremost of Surrealism's literary precursors, inspiring them with such unexpected juxtapositions as "the chance encounter of an umbrella and a sewing machine on an operating table." Following the scientific advances of Darwin and Auguste Compte, Lautréamont viewed literature and art as an attempt to confront, perhaps to solve, the "problem" that man, the "sublime ape," finds himself in the finite world and yet innately seeks after the infinite.
