Sebastian's Arrows by Salvador Dali

Book Description

The volume chronicles how in their poetic skirmishes they sharpened and shaped each other's work - Garcia Lorca defending his verses of absence and elegy and his love of tradition while Dali argued for his theories of "Clarity" and "Holy Objectivity" and the unsettling logic of Surrealism. Christopher Maurer's masterful prologue and selection of letters, texts, and images (many generously provided by the Fundacion Gala-Salvador Dali and the Fundacion Federico Garcia Lorca) offer compelling and intimate insights into the lives and work of two iconic artists. The two men had a "tragic, passionate relationship," Dali once wrote - a friendship pierced by the arrows of Saint Sebastian.

Hidden Faces by Salvador Dali Hidden Faces, Paperback (July 2016)

Salvador Dali's only novel captures his unique vision and reads as an epitaph to pre-war Europe. The extravagance and luxury of a set of aristocrats, at first oblivious to war and then overwhelmed by it, come to represent the decadence of 1930s Europe.

Songs of Maldoror by Salvador Dali Songs of Maldoror, Paperback (July 2011)

Le Comte de Lautreamont was the nom de plume of Isidore Ducasse (1846-70), a Uruguayan-born French writer and poet whose only surviving major work of fiction, Les Chants de Maldoror, was discovered by the Surrealists, who hailed the work as a dark progenitor of their movement.
