'I, Salvador Dali, come from Spain, which is the most irrational andmost mystical country in the world.' Dali's implicit suggestion that Spaniards make good surrealists is fully borne out by Robert Havard'sCompanion. Chapters consider major figures such as Garcia Lorca, Salvador Dali, Luis Bunuel, Rafael Alberti, Vicente Aleixandre, LuisCernuda, Joan Miro and Gomez de la Serna; other less mainstream figuresare gathered into surveys of work in particular genres. The intention is to represent the broad evolution of Surrealism, from the early Freudian preoccupation with the unconscious to the Hegelian metaphysics of 'the surrealist object', and finally to the politics of Marxist materialism. The introduction focuses on salient features of Surrealism in Spain, and considers the value of its contribution both in terms of its adherence to French theory and as a distinctive cultural phenomenon. Contributors/contribuyen: DAWN ADES, ANDREW ANDERSON, GWYNNE EDWARDS, HAIM FINKELSTEIN, BOB GURNEY, DEREK HARRIS, ROBERT HAVARD, ALAN HOYLE, PATRICIA McDERMOTT, MARIA T. PAO, JACQUELINE RATTRAY, JAMES VALENDER, JASON WILSON 'Yo, Salvador Dali, soy de Espana, el pais mas irracional y mas mistico del mundo'. Bien pudiera haber anadido Dali que los espanoles son surrealistas por naturaleza, lo cual se expresa de forma preclara en este o por Robert Havard. Los capitulos comentan las figuras de mayor trascendencia del surrealismo espanol, como Garcia Lorca, Luis Bunuel, Rafael Alberti, Vicente Aleixandre, Luis Cernuda, Joan Miro, Gomez de la Serna y eli. Otros de menor alcance se agrupan en estudios especificos segun los generos. El enfasis recae siempre sobre lo que es distintivo y original en el pensamiento o en la tecnica del autor dado, y siempre con el propositsentar la evolucion mas amplia del Surrealismo en Espana: desde la temprana preocupacion freudiana con el inconsciente, pasando por la metafisica hegeliana del 'objeto surrealista', hasta llegar a la politica marxista del matismo. La introduccion hace hincapie en los rasgos mas destacados del Surrealismo en Espana y trata de evaluar su contribucion tanto en lo que respecta a su adhesion a las teorias francesas como, asimismo, en el sentido e de, o ser juzgado como, un fenomeno cultural distinto en su sus propios terminos.
