Love him or not, there seems to be little middle ground with Salvador Dali. What I find probably-peripherally interesting in Dali's writings are the titles of them...maybe more so than the written piece itself--perhaps that is because I enter such deep shallow pool in them where I become lost or bored or just cleaved up in misunderstanding...it is all a possibility. One thing that is inarguable I think are the titles of some of his works. For example, I wanted to share a few that are found in the Surrealist-laden but not-necessarily-Surrealist art magazine, Minotaure (1933-1939):
- "Non-Euclidean Psychology of a Photograph"
- "The Spectral Surrealism of Eternal Pre-Raphaelite Femineity"
- "First Morphological Law relating to Soft Structure"
- "A Paranoiac-Critical Interpretation of the Obsessive Image of Millet's Angelus"
- "Concerning the Terrifying and Edible Beauty of Art Nouveau"
- "The New Colouras of Spectral Sex-Appeal"
- "The Aerodynamic Apparition of Object Beings"
