Replying to a critic of “Les Possessions”, a series of automatic texts in which André Breton and fellow Surrealist Paul Eluard simulate various categories of mental illness, Breton denied that pastiche had played any part in it. An overview of Surrealism’s encounter with the art and writing of the mentally ill throws doubt upon Breton’s defensive claim, and his parallel assertion that the avoidance of pastiche had enabled Surrealism to shed an authentic light on “provisionally condemned regions of the human mind”.

Globalisation envelops the world - and historians too. The 'g' word is now mandatory in titles of books and articles; PhD students follow their leaders in dedicating their dissertations to the subject. Yet, not so long ago postmodern approaches to the past were equally compelling: if you could not tell your trope from your alterity and your Spivak from your Bhaba, your chances of landing a job were minimal. Wise investors buy at the bottom of the market and get out at the top.
