The Collected Writings of Salvador Dalí is the first comprehensive collection of Dalí's shorter writings to appear in English. The volume includes almost all of his writings published in the 1920s and 1930s, most of which appear in this book for the first time in an English translation. It also offers a substantial selection of the shorter pieces published in the 1940s and later, including excerpts from some of his book-length publications. The texts are accompanied by extensive commentaries and annotations which serve to illuminate the rich intellectual background and the broad range of references brought by Dalí to his writings.Read more
