1 review about Le paradoxisme: Un nouveau movement litteraire

A collection of avante garde poetry in many forms

  • Jan 22, 2002
Poetry is a subject that is very much in the eye of the reader, and in this book, poetry takes many forms. The first few are constructed from French text, but the remaining are built from punctuation, lines, rectangles, drawings and empty space. Smarandache is the founder of the paradoxist movement, where the genre is the uttering of paradoxical statements such as "All is possible, the impossible too!" Despite the lack of dialog, many of the entries are full of emotion, reflecting Smarandache's childhood in the repressive environment of communist Rumania. He also fled Rumania, becoming a political refugee and spending years as a vagabond, supporting himself doing odd jobs.
If you don't believe that it is possible to express aspects of the human condition using lines, empty space and punctuation, then you should read this book. You must read it with an avant-garde state of mind, and if you can do that, you will be able to discern a deeper meaning in the marks on the paper.
