Synopsis: Joyce Mansour's "Screams" was first published in France in 1953. In a time when feminism was in its nascent stage, and explicit sexuality was taboo, Mansour's violent eroticism, and poetic mastery were shocking. In "Screams" Mansour breaks open the female wound--and women's rage, ecstacy, and pain came forth in sharp piercing cries. Until now, American readers have not had access to this powerful erotic text. Translated by Serge Gavronsky, "Screams" is a must for anyone interested in the feminist dimension of the Surrealist movement.
About the Author: Born in England and raised in Cairo, Joyce Mansour (1928-1986) was a Jewish Egyptian. She later moved to France, where she became a major figure in the Surrealist Movement, hosting Andre Breton's literary gatherings. Though her work has been largely ignored in American collections, her highly charged, confrontational poetry is now being recognized for its profound historical and literary importance.
