 POET FACTS AND INFORMATION   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Poets, like any artist, exist within a cultural and intellectual tradition and generally write in a specific language, but the qualities which comprise good poetry are to some extent timeless and address issues common to all humanity.
Once they have established their name, poets may achieve a kind of alternative aristocracy, but the poets who manage to achieve real prosperity through their profession are certainly in the minority, hence poetry's continued association with Bohemianism Today, there are few poets able to support themselves exclusively by writing poetry.
Poets, however, tend to be either on the fringes of or at the very center of their culture.

 Mark Harden's Artchive: "Dada and Surrealism"
Surrealists approved of desire in its attack on reason and the Veristic Surrealism of Paul Delvaux (b 1897), in which women appear in the cool surroundings of noble architecture and exude an hallucinatory eroticism.
In the work of the Veristic Surrealists, the surface of the painting tends to be flat and glossy: the viewer is reminded as little as possible that the illusion is composed of paint and the hallucinatory effect is thereby enhanced.
After the end of the Surrealist epoch, this approach was carried into painting in New York by Arshile Gorky (1904-1948), the 'white writing' paintings of Mark Tobey (1890-1976) and, above all, the vast abstractions of Jackson Pollock which contain a strong element of drawing with paint while the artist was in an ecstatic trance.

 Surrealist Documentary: Reviewing the Real
In Surrealist documentary and Surrealist films in general, the realistic effect is used to hook the viewer into the world represented by the film in order to disrupt taken-for-granted assumptions about that world (3).
Surrealist Jacques Brunius in Violons d'Ingres (1939) brought together portraits of a number of individuals – termed inspirés – whose obsessive ambitions led them to create objects to which society attaches no value, but which serve to externalise their inner worlds or what Breton called a “spectacular explosion of desire” (33).
The filmmakers saw their film's essential Surrealism in the way the scenario was drawn, rather than written in a form of analogical play deployed by Surrealist poets, with a spoken text by one of their number, Benjamin Péret, explaining and interpreting the images in a form of free interplay between sound and image (39).

Discussing the Haitian surrealist poet Clement Magloire-Saint-Audé (1912-1971), critic Michael Richardson can assert that this poetry represents "the contamination of the French language by the introduction of a Creole sensibility" (28).
