Example text

Pure realism was the worst error of all literature. It is not the object of art to make life comfortable for the fat bourgeois so that he may nod his head: “Yes, yes, that’s the way it is! ” Art, insofar as it seeks to educate, to improve men, or to be in any way effective, must slay workaday man; it must frighten him as the mask frightens the child, as Euripides frightened the Athenians who staggered from the theatre. Art exists to change man back into the child he was. The simplest means to accomplish this is by the use of the grotesque—a grotesque TWO SUPERDRAMAS 11 that does not cause laughter.

Sokel A difficult struggle has commenced for the new drama, the superdrama. The first drama was that of the Greeks, in which gods contested with men. A great thing it was that the gods then deemed men worthy of such a contest, something that has not since occurred. Drama meant enormous magnifica­ tion of reality, a most profound, most enigmatic Pythian immersion in measureless passion, in corroding grief, and all of that colored in surreal tints. Later followed the drama of man for mans 6ake. Inner conflict, psychology, problems, reason.

Baal has no need for emasculation. He stays free of the compulsion to fit into any organized form of life. Civilization has been unable to con­ quer him; organization has been unable to touch him with its twisting grip. Seen by the social self in all men and women, Baal is a “degenerate beast” and deserves full con­ tempt. Seen by their nostalgia for a pre-social state of free­ dom, Baal wears the halo of eternal childhood and arouses hopeless admiration. Men and women are erotically drawn to him because he awakens in them a buried memory of untrammeled vitality, the longing for an innocence that has nothing to do with moral codes.
