Title: 
Gadfly - early '50s - Part 2
Description: 
A radio clip of William Shakespeare's Hamlet plays. Stan Brakhage reads a biography of Fyodor Dostoyevsky and is oftentimes interrupted by the other speakers. The speakers discuss whether despair can be considered a type of inspiration. Brakhage and the other speakers debate whether Leo Tolstoy was inspired by despair. Speaker 2 gives a summary of the plot of Dostoyevsky's 'Crime and Punishment.' The speakers describe the murder in 'Crime and Punishment.' Brakhage mentions that he doesn't approve of 'condensation” in literature. Note: This recording is likely from an extracurricular student meeting at South High School Denver. Continued on 'Gadfly early '50s - Part 1.'
