Two Mothers is a translation by Angel Flores of Dos Madres (1920), a short story in dramatic form written by the Spanish writer and philosopher, Miguel Unamuno (1864-1936). It explores the theme of procreation by focussing on the desire of the sterile Raquel to become a mother, and her influence on her lover and his wife (all three of whom are shown in Eric Fraser’s illustration). It was first broadcast on the BBC Third Programme on 18 January 1961.
