The first complete collection of short fiction by the great surrealist artist and writer Leonora Carrington, published for her centennial.Surrealist writer and painter Leonora Carrington (1917-2011) was a master of the macabre, of gorgeous tableaus, biting satire, roguish comedy, and brilliant, effortless flights of the imagination. Nowhere are these qualities more ingeniously brought together than in the works of short fiction she wrote throughout her life. Published to coincide with the centennial of her birth, The Complete Stories of Leonora Carrington collects for the first time all of her stories, including several never before seen in print.

The Complete Stories of Leonara Carrington

Translated from French by Katherine Talbot
Translated from Spanish by Anthony Kerrigan
2017

5.0/5.0

Carringtons novels have come to epitomize surrealism,and really there is no other way to explain this brilliant, strange and absorbing stories. This includes all her short stories, some a bit autobiographical, but all of them haunting. I first found her through her surreal art work. Amazing.

Favorites include:

The Debutante

A Man In Love

The Three Hunters

Some of the most remarkable short stories I've ever read: surrealistic fairy tales that are atmospheric, eerie, and sublime. The images are fantastic, word-paintings of strange worlds where animals speak, the unspeakable is eaten, and characters transform from people, to animals, to corpses and other inanimate objects. A feast to be sipped and savored! ( )

“Do you believe that the past dies?”
“Yes, if the present cuts its throat.”


The form is fables, folk and fairy tales; the feel is fantastical, dream-like, surreal (in the original sense, per André Breton, as behind or beneath sensory consciousness, where lies the ominous and the absurd). These stories are weird and wild like Carrington’s paintings—there are equine homunculi with vulgar passions, spooky soothsaying birds, a fountain full of stupefied bees and allusions to Alfred Jarry (‘Mr. MacFrolick offered me a china dish on which rested his own moustache’). A family of hunters, cursed ever after a grandfather broke wind during his first communion ceremony, displays its trophies in a long lamp-lit gallery ‘consisting only of sausages: sausages in aquariums, sausages in cages, sausages hanging on the walls, sausages in sumptuous glass boxes.’ Carrington was a connoisseur of eccentric collections and the frisson of contraries—verdant decay, exhausted innocence, the mundane miraculous.

About a hundred yards from the Church of Saint Alexander there was what he called “my garden of the little Flowers of Mortification.” This consisted of a number of lugubrious instruments half buried in the earth: chairs made of wire (“I sit in them when they’re white-hot and stay there until they cool off”); enormous, smiling mouths with pointed, poisonous teeth; underwear of reinforced concrete full of scorpions and adders; cushions made of millions of black mice biting one another—when the blessed buttocks were elsewhere.

Most of the stories were written in the late 1930s & early 1940s but seem to come from a timeless wellspring. The handful of stories composed from the 1950s onward more often refer (if only obliquely) to the contemporaneous world and are less cryptic and more satirical.

The Head of the Psychoanalytical Association, Dr. Siegried Laftnalger, received the gift of the Rats in the shadow of the monument to Semi-Applied and Metaphorical Science. This monument, recognized around the world as unique, consists of three heroes and a horse triumphantly penetrating a streptococcus culture. ( )
  HectorSwell | Aug 25, 2019 |
Carrington’s stories read like fairy tales, set in forests or gardens with fountains, or ballrooms, or out near the stables—then the Bishop mysteriously produces a porkchop from beneath his robe, or two cabbages tussle by the light of the moon. Spectral children warble in the eerie mist. The moon drowns in a lake.
No way to prepare for these, really. Absurd and sinister and beautiful.

The collection started off brilliantly, with "The Debutante," but trickled away from there. The stories started to feel shticky pretty quickly. ( )
