Andre Breton On Reality

Andre Breton (February 19, 1896 – September 28, 1966) I believe in the future resolution of these two states - outwardly so contradictory - which are dreams and reality, into a sort of absolute reality, a surreality, so to speak.

Lewis Hyde On Invocation

Lewis Hyde (1945 -) An essential portion of any artist’s labor is not creation so much as invocation. Part of the work cannot be made, it must be received; and we cannot have this gift except, perhaps, by supplication, by courting, by creating within ourselves that ‘begging bowl’ to which the gift is drawn.
