For a new literary movement:
Myself... I’m not a poet.
I went from mathematics. Actually I was surprised: why do the paradoxes exist in mathematics?
Does the most exact science, the Queen of Sciences – how Gauss said – admit both false and true things?
Then, why not in literature?
Then, why aren’t there paradoxes in literature, which seems to be so open, so flexible?
And I tried to find.
All is possible. Therefore this volume too!!
- Read, my friends, our everyday paradoxes! Expressed in naïf, banal sentences:
· Hard contradictions.
· Strong antitheses.
· Figurative expressions literally interpreted.
· Meaning deviation.
· Word games.
· Contradictory comparisons.
· Words placed in several meanings at the same time.
· Absurd repetitions.
· Proverbs’ parody.
Non-verse, non-work, non-literature, … non-yes!
- - Write, my friends, our everyday paradoxes! The life paradoxes:
To love and to hate
in the same time.
To be loved and to be hated
Program the computers to write in your place!
Any free word in poetry, or better:
Poems without words…
These last ones will finally be read!
If the precursors have said an idea, you say the opposite!!
Write my friends.
