"Surrealist Poetry - Lightning in the Night of the Subconscious and Hermeticism" Event Held at ITBF


Pamukkale University (PAU) Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (İTBF) held an event titled "Surrealist Poetry Subconscious and Lightning in the Night of Hermeticism" with the participation of French Language and Literature Department Faculty Member Assoc. Prof. Dr. Şevket Kadıoğlu and History Department undergraduate student Batuhan Çağlayan as speakers.

The event titled "Surrealist Poetry - Lightning in the Night of the Subconscious and Hermeticism", organized within the framework of the 100th Anniversary of the Founding of the Republic Events at ITBF İsmail Çetişli Conference Hall, was attended by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Şevket Kadıoğlu, faculty member of the Department of French Language and Literature, and Batuhan Çağlayan, undergraduate student of the Department of History, as speakers.

At the beginning of the event, the speakers presented a historical perspective on the birth of the "Surrealism" movement that emerged in the first half of the twentieth century, which is most clearly associated with the break with rationalism, which aims to reveal the reality of the unconscious rather than the reality controlled by the mind. The speakers emphasized the influence of Gérard de Nerval in the nineteenth century (in the context of dreams) and later Baudelaire in the emergence of this movement, and drew attention to the influence of Rimbaud, who said that "it is absolutely necessary to be modern", and Lautréamont with his work Songs of Maldoror. Futurism, Dadaism and Apollinaire's New Thought (l'Esprit Nouveau) were the main stops in the preparation of surrealism. The speakers also gave information about the surrealist techniques known as; humor, dream, marvelous (le merveilleux) madness, automatic writing, exquisite cadaver (le cadavre exquis), emphasizing that surrealist poetry can be defined as a gush of images far from the control of the mind, a lightning bolt that appears once in the night and disappears immediately, They performed examples from the work "Magnetic Fields" written by André Breton, the founder of surrealism, together with Philippe Soupault with the technique of automatic writing (l'Ecriture automatique) and also presented examples from the poems of French surrealist poets, the most striking of which was René CHAR, who wrote his early poems under the influence of surrealism.

Speakers Batuhan Çağlayan and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Kadıoğlu's play "Nefis Kadavra" with the participating students marked the event.
