Id | Ego | Super-Ego

Subsequent to the recent ‘Beast from the East II’ storm last week I hereby claim this dislodged fragment of sea defences as a fitting structuralist metaphor for the current state of the ‘self’: a true concrete poem.

One thought on “Id | Ego | Super-Ego

  1. Echoes a long forgotten and sadly unrecorded collaboration between René Magritte and Samuel Beckett. One of the proposed works was provisionally titled ‘Ne c’est pas I’. It was probably rejected by Magritte as being too literal, even for him.
    Beckett of course retained this reference in his 1972 monologue ‘Not I’, some five years after Magritte had died in 1967.
