From the publisher: One of the hallmarks of Surrealism is the encounter, often by chance, with a key person, place, or object through a trajectory no one could have predicted. Penelope Rosemont draws on a lifetime of such experiences in her collection of essays, Surrealism: Inside the Magnetic Fields. From her youthful forays as a radical student in Chicago to her pivotal meeting with Andre Breton and the Surrealist Movement in Paris, Rosemont — one of the movement’s leading exponents in the United States — documents her unending search for the Marvelous.
