Is there right-wing surrealism worth reading? Is there fascist surreal literature?
I've been told fascists saw it as an aberration as a general rule. But I imagine there must be something interesting out there. I am not looking for anti-communist surrealism, like I found in Bulgakov because that seems to be very easy to find.
Surrealism was also a political position of leftist tendencies (that was never taken seriously by more widespread political movements, as Communist Parties).
Closest you will get to what you are looking for is authors that started as surrealists and ended up being collaborationists,
I can only think of Drieu de la Rochelle.
Also, Breton kicked out Robert Desnos of the group because of his individualism. Desnos was not fascist at all (as a matter of fact, he died at a concentration camp) but he certainly was against orthodox Surr. just as Bataille, Prévert and many of the founder members.
The Decadents and Symbolists were precursors to the Surrealists; both held bourgeois mores in contempt.
Many of these are good. There is a mix of political influence in these but that's not really important.
No, fascism produces very little art worth considering because it desperately tries to reproduce the art of the past by definition. The only exception is futurism, which wasn't great in retrospect anyway.
As mentioned, the surrealist movement was explicitly marxist. But there is plenty of literature that qualifies as surreal without being adhering to Andre Breton's circlejerk.
for an overview of non Breton-ish surrealism (folow the colored dots).
Boris Vian is a good example of brilliant surreal literature that explicitly distances itself from marxists dogma. But he is in no way fascist.
There are works predating the movement which contain fascistoid elements- mainly Maldoror, wich with it's exploration of rampant misanthropy and egomania is the perfect book for teenage edgelords.
