Roussel the Precursor-An Out of the Way Read 20 May 2012
By Just Sayin' - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am willing to bet that this is the only review of Locus Solus that will ever appear on Amazon.
Roussel was looked on as a precursor of Surrealism - the strangest things are matter-of-fact - and Le Nouveau Roman - his detailed descriptions anticipate Robbe-Grillet.
The book is fun and fascinating, but also hollow at the core, just like Robbe-GrIllet. The enlisting of 19th Century technologies - hot air baloons mustered for a machine to make a monumental mosaic out of extracted human teeth of varying colors and states of decay - is delightful. It is as if Rube Goldberg had no sense of humor, and was filing for a patent, complete with all important details.
This is an out-of-the way read, great fun, but undeniably tedious at points.
