Leave everything. Leave Dada. Leave your wife. Leave your mistress. Leave your hopes and fears. Leave your children in the woods. Leave the substance for the shadow. Leave your easy life, leave what you are given for the future. Set off on the roads.
First of all, gotta love the supposition that the reader will have to leave both his wife and his mistress. Presenting France, where adultery is customary, much like tipping.
Also noted is how the further Breton goes on, the more he echoes Christ talking to his Apostles. Talk about stealing from the best!
Surrealist techniques are a mixed bag, but as such they command attention. If the point is to shut down the rational mind, that doesn't quite work for me, not in my own process. I work best when I get both halves of my brain in on the action. Still, in a group setting, this can be potent stuff. The exquisite corpse is a very interesting technique.
