Abstract

The present study addresses the problem of the aporias which concern the surrealist conception of language and its poetic tools. The surrealists opposed to the mindset which supposes that what exists has its raison d‘être and can - therefore - be considered intelligible. They postulated that there is a sphere beyond reality in which reason is not able to penetrate. But all the tools that the surrealists proposed in order to penetrate to a higher sphere of reality were in fact designed out of the modalities of reasoning.
