    meaning

    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.
