Transcript of Futurism ( Liteature

Futurism (Literature)
1.Futurism is a modernist movement in literature and part of the Futurism art movement that originated in Italy in the early 20th century
2.Futurist poetry is characterised by unexpected combinations of images and by its hyper-concision
3.Futurist literature primarily focuses on seven aspects: intuition, analogy, irony, abolition of syntax, metrical reform, onomatopoeia, and essential/synthetic lyricism.
Filippo Tommaso Marinetti
1.Filippo Tommaso Emilio Marinetti was an Italian poet and editor, the founder of the Futurist movement.
2. Futurism had both anarchist and Fascist elements; Marinetti later became an active supporter of Benito Mussolini.

Futurism in the theatre
1.the Futurists exalted the variety theatre, vaudeville, and music hall because, they argued, it "had no tradition
2.the heavy use of machinery attracted the Futurists, as well as Vaudevillian acts' tendency to "destroy" the masterpieces of the past through parody and other forms of depreciation.
In order to better provide stark, contrasting, analogies, the Futurist literature promoted a kind of hyper-conciseness. It was dubbed essential and synthetic lyricism. The former refers to a paring down of any and all superfluous objects while the latter expresses an unnatural compactness of the language unseen elsewhere
1. Intuition was the means by which creation took place
2.He believed that there could be no abstraction of the values of futurist literature in logical terms.
3. Rather, art was a language in and of itself that could only be expressed in that language.
1.Analogy's purpose in Futurist writing was to show that everything related to one another.
2. This intuition is "the poet's peculiar quality in that it enables him to discover analogies
1. Irony proved to be "so old and forgotten that it looked almost new when the dust was brushed away from it.
Abolition of syntax
1.Futurists believed that the constraints of syntax were inappropriate to modern life and that it did not truly represent the mind of the poet.
2. The Futurists were not destroying syntax in that sense
Metrical reform
1.Futurist poetry relied on free verse as their poetical vehicle.
2.all ideas of meter were rejected and the word became the main unit of concern instead of the meter.
1. This meant that any collection of letters could represent a sound.
2. they tried to capture the internal motions of the soul.
