Realignment in a Forward Direction

Realignment in a Forward Direction

First of all, I would like to say that André Malraux repeats himself for dramatic effect, a rhetoric style of sorts that hammers home the point that Art is a revolutionary mechanism. Do you agree with this? When the ordered arrangement takes on a forme similar to a pastiche is there a revolution or an improvement at play? Stopping here would be fallacious for sure, the concept of fate brings in an entirely different dimension. Originality or enough originality to separate your efforts as distinct, different, and worthy of Art with a capital "A" is, in fact, what Malraux is referring to. If you are hung up on fate as a non-entity then use your imagination.
