    One thought on “Manifesto: A Century of Isms”

    1. Every great aesthetic manifesto is in this one volume A perfect book to pick up and then put down with a frown on your face Everyone from Wilde to Breton and beyond.

    2. I always wanted to write a manifesto Such a dramatic gesture Unfortunately most of the manifestos in this book are incoherent poetic gestures from bygone eras A few highlights keep it from being total snooze Filippo Marinetti s classic Futurist manifesto is in here, for example.4 We say that the world s magnificence has been enriched by a new beauty the beauty of speed A racing car whose hood is adorned with great pipes, like serpents of explosive breath a roaring car that seems to ride on grape [...]

    3. What can I say I love this book Mary Ann Caws is one of the foremost authors and academics on Surrealism and this book has every great Surrealist, Futurist, and Dadaist manifesto there is, along with many other great manifestos of the avant garde at the peak of their manifesto writing, the very late 19th century into about the middle or a little bit later into the 20th century, ending with the Language Poets Great for teaching about art and poetry movements and what they have said about themselv [...]

    4. I m impressed by the faith in the importance of art, almost alien now, evinced by the many documents gathered here by Mary Ann Caws This is a whole lot of bluster, though, and it s hard to read than a bit at a time.

    5. A crazy compendium of manifestos Of course it isn t possible to include every screed ever written, but shes does miss any and all related to underground cinema Nevertheless, a great idea and a formidable collection to keep dipping into.

    6. this is an important adittion to my tool chest It taught me to make grand sweeping decisions about the way i think things SHOULD be.which i think is something people SHOULD do.

    7. a good indexical reference to the naivety and insight times a past the valarie saint pointe shit in here is fucking hilarious.
