Seguramente se debe a que no es exactamente el estilo que generalmente me gusta leer. En efecto es muy surrealista, pero no por ello incoherente. Jan 13, Ana rated it liked it. It is all very feminist.
I applied to participate at the beginning of the year to write a play about Leonora Carrington , British surrealist painter that lived many years in Mexico and was one of the last if not the last surrealists alive.
At the beginning of the year I started researching about her just to find out that she was also a writer. She wrote several stories and a novel. I looked for them and started reading them, but at some point my workload got too heavy and I had to pause the project.
Now, after finishing my crazy studies, I started it again and I began searching for this book. In particular, I wanted to read Down Below , because, in theory, it is a piece of non-fiction where Carrington tells about her experience of being taken to a psychiatric institution in Spain. I found it in English in Amazon and antique book shops at crazy prices. I ended up getting the digital version in Spanish from the Google Play store in case you want it Well, let's just say that initially i read the book by parts, but I recently read it And well I don't know.
I have a strange relationship with Leonora. I like her stories a lot. I would even dare to say I like them more than her paintings. They reflect reality in a very strange way, although I don't know if I know that just because I've done some research on her life, and if normal people who just read her books can see these links and, they either make them appreciate the story more, or make it even more senseless. As much as they asked her, Leonora never revealed the meanings and symbols in her stories, but it seems to me that there are several things that don't require a complicated explanation.
The images in most of the stories: The debutante, The oval lady, The house of fear But maybe it is just personal taste. The ending of the book, Down Below, is perhaps the most disturbing.
Carrington claims to be speaking about reality, but even so, the events, mixed with her hallucinations, seem so surreal that it becomes hard to distinguish. That is how our relationship got complicated. Because she makes me doubt too much how truthful she is.
And yes, maybe there is a different kind of truth in the things we imagine, but without meeting her I still recommend it. Even if just because she is an artist that is not recognised by her written work, that still talks about society and growing up.
And well, there aren't that many surrealist texts around.
