        A few years after I saw my first Giacometti, I read Jean Paul Sartre’s essay on the sculptor ‘The Quest for the Absolute’. The two men were friends, and Giacometti came to to see himself as standing in the existential tradition, and of his work as asking existential questions about humanness, and human fragility, in the post-Holocaust world.   Parkinson goes on to give a stimulating reading of the influence of pulp science fiction on post-war French artists, and the contraflow of what might be called demotic surrealism, which produced so many striking visualisations of science-fiction worlds on the covers of paperback novels. He discerns the influence of Yves Tanguy, in particular, in the alien landscapes of cover artists like.

        For some he was the philosopher of existentialism, for others the constant provocateur, the politically engaged author, the uncertain militant, the repenting bourgeois, the life companion of Simone de Beauvoir… From his first readings in the Pages: "Surrealism."

      Surrealism and the Gothic is the first book-length analysis of the role played by the gothic in both the initial emergence of surrealism and at key moments in its subsequent development as an art and literary movement. The book argues the strong and sustained influence, not only of the classic. "What is Literature?" remains the most significant critical landmark of French literature since World War II. Neither abstract nor abstruse, it is a brilliant, provocative performance by a writer more inspired than cautious."What is Literature?" challenges anyone who writes as if literature could be extricated from history or society. But Sartre does more than indict.

But his feelings of Nausea soon extend to his research. Whenever he looks in a mirror, he is not sure if he sees.
