This paper will address the key factors regarding surrealism by explaining its most popular methods, its goals, the historical events and founders and lastly, its impact on art and other areas. Surrealism was rooted from Dada, which is a result of World War I. Dada artists’ goals are to create a culture where people champion the absurd, the irrational and the spontaneous to relief themselves from the boundaries and anger created by the war. Surrealists, however, having realized the “cynical and nihilistic” results of Dada’s works, used the ideas from Dada to create a “more sophisticated, more comprehensive movement” (Brad Finger, 2013, p 12). Fig 1: Timeline of Surrealism. (source: self-made) In the early years, surrealism was aimed to become a social movement that involved everything from science to politic.

Instead of countering such attacks on his person–which were in effect based on reader 's assumptions equating the work 's first person narrator with the author because of the novel 's biographical character (cf. Lillios 87)–Miller fortified this impression on the reader by publishing works of the same tone in the following years, among which Tropic of Capricorn and Sexus are the most prominent ones to mention.

In essence, modernism is an extension of the rejection of enlightenment, positivism, and faith. Characteristics of modernistic poetry include allusions, linguistic fragments, as well as highly vivid diction (“Modernism” 2). The strong emphasis on emotion, memories, and personal imagination coupled with its central concerns of objectivity and detachment in “After Apple Picking” and other modernist poems brings new perspectives to traditional poetry and offers a means of “out of the box” thinking in terms of established poetic conventions.
