Absence of Myth : Writings on Surrealism Paperback / softback
These essays, the result of profound reflection in the wake of World War II, comprise the most incisive study yet made of surrealism, insisting on its importance as a cultural and social phenomenon with far-reaching consequences.
They clarify Bataille's links with the surrealist movement, and shed light on his complex and greatly misunderstood relationship with Andre Breton.
