Hebdomeros, originally written in French by Giorgio de Chirico and published in Paris in 1929, was immediately accepted by critics as one of the capital novels of surrealist literature. It should also be said that Hebdomeros is a fundamental document for better understanding the artistic revolution that De Chirico operated in those years with his metaphysical painting. The story does not proceed from event to event, but passes from one image, from one word, from one analogy to another. The singularity of this process lies in its distance from both the dream and the interior monologue, it does not involve the reader, but seduces him with a spectacle of images that smell of hallucination and dreams, of vanishing anguish and frigid rhetorical invention. First English translation housed in a striking dust-jacket designed by Keith Cunningham. Previous ownership signature of British novelist Lindsay Clarke to front endpaper. Condition: dust-wrapper clipped and lightly worn with some spotting and price label to front flap, otherwise very good.
