I'm not sure if any recordings of Breton exist, but he wrote novels and
poetry. In his poetry he utilized a great deal of automatic writing. I think
Les Champs Magnetique provides a great example of this. However some of his
other novels are a bit more conservative stylistically. I picked up Nadja at
the Salvation Army. It's almost victorian, I don't know how else to describe
narrator's motivation. From what I remember Mad Love was about a homosexual
man trying to avoid unwanted advances while sleeping in women's beds.

Your dream reminded me of a visual arts piece I saw in one of my friend's
art books. It's a fairly popular photograph, on postcards and such. It has a
some guy's chest with a t-shirt printed with a list of authoritative
ideological statements about art, women and politics that contradict each
other. I'll try finding it again and writing them down.
