February 13, 2005

Mary Ann Caws is an internationally respected scholar of surrealism. She has translated many of the movements major texts and is the editor of “Surrealism (Themes and Movements).” Caws talks with Anne Strainchamps about the history of the surrealist movement. Also, we hear actor Steve O’Connell read an excerpts from the early surrealist piece “Magnetic Fields.”  And, Caws and O’Connell read an abridged version of the 1926 Robert Desnos poem, “Sleep Spaces.”
