    would you tell me the meaning of the following sentence?

    Some teachers took it for the work of an incompetent student, while others suspected that they had been treated to a surrealist text produced by "automatic writing."

    Re: meaning

    Whoever or whatever wrote the text didn't know how to write.

    Re: meaning

    A group of teachers were looking at an example of writing. Some thought that it was the work of a student who was not good at writing. Others thought that they were looking at [I think] computer generated writing.
