SANTOS, Lúcia Grossi dos. A experiência surrealista da linguagem: Breton e a psicanálise. Ágora (Rio J.) [online]. 2002, vol.5, n.2, pp.229-247. ISSN 1516-1498.

The surrealist experience of language: Breton and the psychoanalysis. This article presents some aspects of the surrealist experience of language in the twenties, showing that the surrealist automatism is inspired by the functioning of the unconscious as described by Freud. Considering language as the foundation of human reality, Breton anticipates Lacan's formulation of the self and reality. Nevertheless, the first Lacanian conception of language, exclusively circumscribed to the symbolic register, separates Lacan from surrealism. Only in the seventies, will Lacan's theory of language allow the interpretation of the surrealist practice of language.

Keywords : Surrealism; psychoanalysis; automatism; language.
