Evans Over 30 countries In the course of the past fifteen years it has also seen its editors nominated for a World Fantasy Award and been named by WRITER'S DIGEST as one of the Top 30 Short Story Markets In this anthology Guide Dog Books presents a selection of the fiction and essays fromTHE CAFE IRREAL that tak. An anthology of short stories most strange but that s the nature of irreal Irreal is defined as works of fiction in which physical reality reflects psychological reality in a manner that imitates the reality of a dream Hence the reader samples fragments both deeply personal and very international in their use of generally recognized symbolsIn these pages you ll encounter a doctor skilled at diagnosing love the happenings in a town that caught a Minotaur and a young man who receives a new father courtesy of the CIA I missed a great deal of the symbolism But taken for what they are the tales are overall intriguing My main critue was the large number of essays in the back defining irreal separating it from surreal allegory or magical realism While well written and concise the essays occupied around a third of the book Like the literary style they explain less is definitely

Read The Irreal Reader G.S. Evans ¶ 4 review Free download Ç PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ¶ G.S. Evans THE CAFE IRREAL INTERNATIONAL IMAGINATION a pioneering web based literary magazine first went online in 1998 with the intention of publishing a type of fantastic fiction most often associated with writers such as Franz Kafka Kobo Abe and Jorge Luis Borges To this end it has published than 250 authors from. I don t remember when I discovered The Caf Irreal exactly but it was a very long time ago It was before social media I don t think I even used a search engine I was lost in the wilds of Yahoo s directory system My first time there I was introduced to some fantastic books The Restraint of Beasts by Magnus Mills The Hundred Brothers by Donald Antrim and what became one of my favorite books ever The Unconsoled by Kazuo IshiguroLater when Kafka became deathly important to me I visited The Caf Irreal again and again Irrealism according to essays by the editors is influenced by dream but there s a particular flavor of dream they are most interested in and that s the anxiety and dislocation found in Kafka They are determined to stake out a place for this kind of writing in the taxonomy of literature I have mixed feelings about that Yes I love Kafka and I wonder why his sort of allegorical ish uncanny approach didn t catch on they way other modernists did I do want writing like Kafka but I m wary of seeing his writing genre fied turned into clich s tropesSome of the fiction here and on the site is really interesting and enjoyable Some of it I have no doubt would be interesting and enjoyable if I could spend time with the individual authors getting to know their sensibility A personal mythos is revealed in dreams Getting only a small taste of a personal mythos isn t very satisfying I struggle with the length of the fictions of The Caf Irreal The fiction there can sometimes feel thin Like a joke that s strange pretty rather than funny I guess it can be argued that dreams themselves are a short form that they aren t heaped with description But the best irrealism Kafka or The Unconsoled or My Heart Hemmed in are long works that build up their strangeness over time with off key subtlety A lot of the fiction on The Caf Irreal is to me fabulist than uncanny The idea of Irrealism as explained in the essays is rarely brought to fruition in the actual fictionThe medium has placed constraints of course Who wants to read a 12 page short story on the internet But Irrealism is challenging its effect seems even than usual to depend on the fast asleep of the fictive dream The ADD of the internet is a poor habitat for it But this is a much larger problem I guess all these cheap to spin up online lit journals posting little fiction flakes I celebrate the diy uality of it all but I wonder what it s doing to literature to have so many of our young interesting writers focused on producing uirky little nothings in order to blanket the internet with their names My bias against ultra short fiction is really coming out hereReading this anthology I got a bit bogged in the fiction but I raced through the theoretical essays That says something probably I especially appreciated G S Evans essay Irrealism is not a surrealism a longer version of it is available on the site Summing up the difference seems to be about intentionality and art Surrealism is about the experiment than the result There can be no surrealism of one Irrealism on the other hand wants to create and refine a work of art It cares very much about an internal mythos and logic which can only be very individual to the person creating it I ve wondered since I ve been exploring surrealism what surrealists would make of this Evans starts from declarations by the Czech surrealist group rejecting art and advancing science the experimentation that reveals the unconscious Summarizing their position he says If the surrealists produce work that sometimes looks like art that is simply because the unconscious has revealed itself in a form that resembles art not because the person involved has consciously created artBut I don t know Maybe the Czechs don t speak for all surrealists By this definition many of the people we think of as surrealists Joseph Cornell Leonora Carrington etc are actually irrealist not surrealist Or maybe irrealism is something done especially well by surrealists who have studied the unconscious Bleh I don t know I suppose none of it really matters If there is a distinction between surrealists and irrealists I hope they re all down to party togetherAnyway in short not really I m glad The Caf Irreal exists It s an interesting project and I hope they keep at it How about another anthology How about publishing long form examples of irrealism Perhaps I should apply for an internship
