"There is real (not just poetic) madness in Churilin’s poems; and this quality, together with the dream reality of some of his poetry written in 1913, probably qualifies him as being one of the genuine Russian Surrealists avant la lettre… Technically, Churilin achieves special effects by a simple repetition of words and phrases and by his use of conversation fragments and exclamations, which sometimes produce an impression similar to streams of consciousness" (Markov, Russian Futurism, 1969, p. 289).
