Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) is known worldwide for his painting, but this symposium was not dedicated to the Dalí artist, but to the Dalí writer and thinker, dealing in detail with the literary aspects of Dalí. This is an extremely important perspective that has often been put on the back burner.
Dalí’s relationship with writing has already been discussed above, but Dalí’s thought requires a permanent re-reading of his texts. Dalí’s literary legacy is very important. Writing was a permanent resource in his creative process. Sometimes with a public vocation, as in the “Manifest groc” of 1928; more often, in the germinating nucleus of his pictorial work. However, beyond the autobiography and the manifesto, Dalí cultivated poetry, prose and film scripts, as well as numerous articles for magazines, many of which became, over time, critical essays on art.
