Correct, correct yourself, be corrected, polish, tell off, find fault, never plunge blindly into the subjective treasury purely for the temptation to fling here and there on the sand a handful of frothy seaweed and emeralds; that is the order we have for centuries been forced to comply with in art as in other spheres, by this ill-digested rigour and slavish prudence. It is also the order which historically has been broken in exceptional, fundamental circumstances. It is from there that Surrealism sets out.
