Gestes et opinions du docteur Faustroll pataphysicien (Libérer E–pub) Ý Alfred Jarry
I was sadly isappointed by this book I had high expectations but found the reading experience largely tedious My principal critiue would have to be that though the book is outrageous and silly and thus appears to court laughs it s actually mostly unfunnyIt has produced a significant conflict within me I have at a certain time past written a certain work with only one guiding principle Stolen Tomorrows: Understanding and Treating Women's Childhood Sexual Abuse do not limit or constrain one s creativity in any way That is I aimed to write without any concern for practicality of execution without forcing the work to make anyegree of sense and without meeting any Carnal Abuse by Deceit definition of what such a work should accomplish I found the results satisfying though the final text remains secreted on a metaphorical shelf hidden from prying eyesPoint Two I also generally believe that an artist should be entirely uncompromising and thus should not give any regard to audienceIn this book Exploits etc Jarry is absolutely unconstrained in fact far beyond what I thought unconstrained could mean He is also entirely uncompromising So I should like the result right Or else I should uestion my own principals perhapsWell noIn fact I think I will enjoy this book in retrospect than Iid while in the process of actually reading it Will it undergo a similar transformation within my mind to what Even Dwarves Started Small the Herzog Film Hes Opposing Counsel did Only time will tell In the case of that film I profoundlyisliked watching it and it irked me greatly but then I found myself talking about the film far often than I Articles on Bloom County, Including: Berkeley Breathed, Billy and the Boingers, the Academia Waltz, Opus (Comic Strip), Outland (Comic Strip), Minor Characters in Bloom County, a Wish for Wings That Work, Goodnight Opus, the Last Basselope d have expected and then I suspected that I really liked it and my obsession with it virtually proved that the film had had a profound impact on me Well hummmBut here s another reflection Faustroll is not surrealism but it may be regarded as a sort of proto surrealism as the surrealists were inspired by Jarry and his works But anyway there is a sort of literaturefilmartwhatever which isifficult to label some might call it surrealism or absurdism or The Rise of Nerd Politics dadaism or Oulipo or weirdism or whatever and itoesn t uite matter that proponents of these various schools and movements isagreed strongly in their theories intentions self images and efinitions Let s just call it surrealism for now just for kicks and that will be the starting point for my next paragraphOne example of a faith that I hold is that surrealism is not a gimmick and it s unfair to regard it as one Conventional narrative can include a near infinite variety of products good and bad effective and affective or their opposites without limit to the forms that can be produced yet many forms may group themselves around the genericcliche Anyway if we see surrealism as not a gimmick but an alternative way then there could be as many or infinite forms effects and affects etc etc I bore myself sometimes as what can be produced within conventional narrative There s no particular reason why the world could not produce and publish 30000 surrealist novels every year with as much variance in uality and content as we see among conventional works like The Pelican Brief and Tristram Shandy the latter being very odd
"but not surreal "NOT surreal thus conventional in only this limited sense plus it was a bestseller in its ay so oddly enough mainstreamSo the point is not all odd books are of a class They can widely vary in egree of accomplishment and in what they attempt to achieve But critiuing them can be a pain in the ass and evaluation can be an aesthetic judgment that Manga Mania Magical Girls and Friends How to Draw the Super Popular Action Fantasy Characters of Manga does not readily lend itself to the conventional terms used in critiuing conventional worksDr Faustrollidn t Inside Academia deliver a form of greatness that I can uite enjoy or appreciate while I allow for the fact that this somewhat adolescent antic of a book was provocative enough to inspire later accomplished works to venture into previously unexplored territoryI say thisespite the fact that this book reminds me of me far
Than I Enjoy Having To Admit SinceI enjoy having to admit Since the laws of pataphysics each thing Protest Politics in the Marketplace defines and supersedes it s opposite thing this worst of all novels because lacking an acceptable narrative or believable characters or a coherent point is of course the greatest of all novels for its scientific complexity utterly trivial silliness homage to so many friends send up of Sir john Mandeville s travels and the finestrawn of all louacious characters in the history of literature Bosse Celestial Tears Hidden Alchemy de Nage the butt cheek faced baboon cabin boy of the bed sieve boat that sails upon land into and beyond time and space at last to find God through the mathematical geometrical formulae of lord Kelvin I would have added Ha Ha butecided in this instance to hold my tongue and to make no further comment It is obvious by now that I am a The Exposition of Artistic Research descendant of this novel s protagonist except the Americans misspelled my last name somewhat Up to now theisguise seems to be working It is impossible to summarize this book with any clarity Suffice it to say it feels like a mash up of Rabelais and vivid proto Daliesue imagery he would have made the perfect illustrator with loads of absurdist humor and allusions to Jarry s friends in the Symbolist and Decadent movements of fin ROMANCE (BWWM Contemporary Romance Boxset) (African American Pregnancy Interracial Multicultural Book 1) de si cle France woven into the narrative Beyond his iconic and better known Ubu plays it s certainly easy to see here how he became a hero and inspiration to the Dadaists and Surrealistsecades laterThis particular edition is also beautifully presented graphically and features an insightful introduction by Roger Shattuck who introduced me to Jarry so unforgettably in his The Banuet Years long ago and also includes helpful footnotes to explain the esoteric references that pop up often Not for everyone but a real pleasure if you re inclined to this sort of thing Vive Bosse Shallow Grave de Nage ha ha By way of making some introductory remarks Roger ShattuckProveditor General Propagator for the Islands and the Americas Regent by Transsean. « Tout estans Faustroll affrmait Boris Vian y compris la manière e cuire un mouton vivant jusu’à la halte u cuit à point»Le Faustroll est le maître livre Shallow Grave d’Alfred Jarry Au course sa navigation sur terre ferme le savant The Pocket Guide to Action docteur révèle au singe Bossee Nage « ui ne savait Algorithms for Clustering Data (Prentice Hall Advanced Reference Series : Computer Science) de parole humaine ue ha ha » à l’huissier Panmuphle ui consigne tout par écrit et au lecteur les plus singulières uintessencese la littérature e l’ar. ,

Seeking To Produce Anti Art One Ofto produce anti art one of better known Dadaist works was a signed urinal a readymade attributed to Marcel Duchamp In this context perhaps the ridiculously mannered style and the episodic and ultimately pointless narrative reflect an anti artistic anti literary impulse although an argument could be made that Jarry intends the episodic narrative as a parody of travel journals and picaresue novels If though Faustroll is intended as anti literary how is one to rank it As George Carlin asks If you try to fail and succeed which have you one I m giving to this book three stars one for its indifference to literary convention and readers expectations a second for the way it throws a Godelian monkey wrench into the machinery of critical ranking systems half a star for the sophomoric story and another half a star for its style consider this for instance The meshed base unsinkable because of its oily coating rested upon the waves enticulation like a sturgeon upon several harpoons and beneath it was a keyboard of water and air alternately 95 Either I am too stupid or this book is stupid Am I stupid No is this book stupid Well efine stupid I use this word actually to point some facts pretentious too visual but not in the surrealist Boris Vian kind of visual tries to joggle with the idea of journey At least in a journey book you get some interesting story everywhere where the hero lands Here there are only boring The Story of Han Xiangzi: The Alchemical Adventures of a Daoist Immortal (China Program Book) descriptions if youon t know all those characters uite accurately you stand no chance The preface and the postface say there are allegories concerning those to me unknown artists but Gauguin where there was no allegory and Mallarme where i id not get itI stopped reading before i got the chance to throw it away Bodily Doctor Faustroll was a strange hybrid of Faust and troll the hairs of his head alternately platinum blonde and jet black an auburn ambiguity changing according to the sun s position his eyes two capsules of ordinary writing ink flecked with golden spermatozoa from his groin own to his feet in contrast he was sheathed in a satyric black fur for he was man to an improper The Responsible Critic: Essays on African Literature, in Honor of Professor Ben Obumselu degreeAnd.
