Letters, Dreams, and Other Writings

Remedios Varo, translated by Margaret Carson '80

The writings of the Spanish painter Remedios Varo, collected in Letters, Dreams, and Other Writings, exhibit the same quality as her Surrealist artwork: an engagement with mysticism and magic. (Wakefield Press, 2018)

"Fans of the surrealist painter Remedios Varo likely won't be surprised that her writing is as wide reaching and imaginative as her work on canvas." —The Paris Review
