NON-CONFORMIST MANIFESTO[i]

For a new literary movement:

the PARADOXISM

 

 

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:

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

PRONOUNCE AN ANATHEMA AGAINST THIS SUBJECT!
