LETTRISM : ALAIN SATIE.COM
From 1970 to 1972, Alain Satié publishes La Revue littéraire lettriste, a flowering of the most important novels and essays of the movement. The whole collection was presented to the Georges Pompidou Museum.
In 1973, he received the anti-Goncourt prize for his work Écrit en prose ou L'Œuvre hypergraphique (Written in Prose or the Hypergraphic Work) the third true hypergraphic novel to be published (PSI Editions, 1971), following Les Journaux des Dieux (Journals of the Gods) by Isidore Isou, and Saint Ghetto des Prêts (Saint Ghetto of the Loans) by Gabriel Pomerand.
Alain Satié continues exploring the novel, always deepening the immeasurable resources of hypergraphics. His previously developed and expanded hypergraphic values are brought together here in the narrative context of a novel to comprise a significant part of his investigations of the chiseling (reductive) aspect of Lettrism. This hypergraphic language, while hermetic and undecipherable insofar as its intrinsic meaning remains unknown, is mixed with and adapted to intelligible and figurative alphabetic forms that he has borrowed and invented, revealing a syncretic, hence universal novel.
