The Surrealists experienced the marvellous as a kind of jolt or shock, an excitingly disorientating sensation, as though a crack had suddenly opened in the world’s carapace of normality and everything was slipping away. Breton’s Nadja (1928), another book about mysterious Parisian chance encounters, this time with a woman, ends with the ringing assertion: ‘Beauty will be CONVULSIVE or will not be at all.’ Beauty is therefore a disturbance of the senses and this frisson became a defining quality of the Surrealists’ approach to life and art.
