    TOGETHER IN OUR ENDLESS SOLITUDE ~ PAUL ELUARD

     A poem by Paul Eluard

    “I cannot be known
    Better than you know me

    Your eyes in which we sleep
    We together
    Have made for my man’s gleam
    A better fate than for the common nights

    Your eyes in which I travel
    Have given to signs along the roads
    A meaning alien to the earth

    In your eyes who reveal to us
    Our endless solitude

    Are no longer what they thought themselves to be

    You cannot be known
    Better than I know you.”

    ― Paul Éluard

    A French Poet

    Eugène Grindel (1895-1952), known as Paul Éluard, was a French poet who was dedicated to Dadaism and Surrealism.  He was a great admirer of symbolist and avant-garde poets such as Arthur Rimbaud, Charles Baudelaire, and Guillaume Apollinaire. The woman you see in the photo is his second wife Nusch Eluard (1906-1946) She was a French performer, model and surrealist artist.

     

     Surrealism by Surrealists

     What do we know about Surrealism?  Surrealists say true reality only comes from your subconscious. It is for this reason that over time concepts and techniques were developed allowing the artists to use the subconscious mind. They wanted to be able to learn and discover the depths of their brains.

     

     Surrealism was most popular among painters because of its immediate and clear form of expression. In comparison to other forms of art including poetry and literature, it was much harder to be expressed. Surrealists believed in a structured clearly outlined process when expressing themselves. The aesthetics were not that important.

     

    Of course, we can also find surrealism in the film industry, a great example of a Surreal movie is The Blood of a Poet (1932) directed by Jean Cocteau

     

    According to Octavio Paz, (1914-1998) the Mexican writer and poet, “Surrealism is not a poetry but a poetics, and even more, and more decisively, a world vision”. Paz himself was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1990.
