"At a time of psychoanalysis, and of the study of the subconscious mind and sexual perversion, art too adopts the instruments provided by the new science. The avant-garde author (Dadaist, surrealist or expressionist) rediscovers the physiological, already explored by naturalists, decadents and Baudelairian poetics, and adds to it the subconscious."
