Ebdòmero, originariamente scritto in francese da Giorgio de Chirico e pubblicato a Parigi nel 1929, venne subito accolto dalla critica come uno dei romanzi capitali della letteratura surrealista. Va inoltre detto che Ebdòmero è un documento fondamentale per meglio comprendere la rivoluzione artistica che De Chirico operò in quegli anni con la sua pittura metafisica. Il rac ...more

I read this thing, though I would not have made it off the first page were it not written by the painter. My opinion of his paintings just dropped a notch.

Called the best surrealist novel, it isn't the best of anything. No characters or plot. No striking imagery, imagination, surprise.

Read Huysmans instead. Or even Céline.

I found De Chirico's memoirs pretty amusing, so I expected Hebdomeros to be at least mildly entertaining. Instead, I had to give up after just a couple of pages. There is no plot and the random imagery is not nearly as effective in a written description as it is in his paintings.

"La vita non sarebbe forse che un'immensa menzogna? Non sarebbe forse che l'ombra di un sogno fuggente?"

Criptico, onirico, allegorico: Ebdomero si configura subito come particolarissimo esempio di letteratura metafisica, di trascrizione in parole delle immagini sovrapposte e concatenate così come partorite dalla mente di De Chirico.
Non è un testo di facile lettura, ci si perde completamente, è quasi impossibile affrontarlo conoscendo poco o nulla dell'arte di De Chirico e sicuramente si perde molto dei
