From F.T. Marinetti’s “Critical Writings”: Destruction of Syntax––Untrammeled Imagination––Words-in-Freedom
I am at war with the precious, ornamental, aesthetics of Mallarme and his quest for the rare word, for the unique, irreplaceable, elegant, evocative and exquisite adjective. I don’t want to evoke an idea or a sensation with these traditionalist charms or affections, I want to seize them roughly and hurl them straight in the reader’s face.
F.T.Marinetti was the founder of the Italian Futurist movement, essayist and Fascist supporter.
