The Sleep of Reason / Dormez Vous?

The poet Saint Pol Roux hung a Do Not Disturb sign on his door whenever he went to sleep. It read "Poet at Work."

2 poets who write in their sleep will read from their dreamwork on May 26 at 7:30pm at the Café de la Plage, Paris.

By this we do not mean that they wake, remember, then write down what they have dreamed. No. They write while they are fast asleep.

Geoffrey Cruickshank-Hagenbuckle is the author of Kook! a parapsychological pulp-noir thriller.

Virgile Novarina (French) has published 2 books of drawings and writings from sleep. He recently returned from a performance in the West Indies where he slept through the opening in his bed—shipped from Paris—in the gallery exhibiting his works.
