Miroir de la Tauromachie - avec 3 dessins de André Masson - 1938.
Michel Leiris - L'érotisme.

GLM - 1938.
Acéphale nouvelle serie cahier 1.

Donc, le matador se tient debout, les pieds impeccablement joints, rivés par sa peur de déchoir au su du public en même temps que par les bandelettes qui enserrent sa cheville, masquées par le bas rose-vomi et le clinquant des escarpins. Roideur d’homme seul, roideur d’épée. La muleta lentement déployée couvre de sa paupière la tige trop clairement évidente, jet jailli chimérique d’une prunelle d’acier.

Dans l’art du torero, Leiris trouve l’illustration vertigineuse d’un cérémonial qui se rapproche étrangement de l’érotisme et du sacré, mais surtout de l’écriture : la mort s’y effleure du bout des doigts. Pour le torero, comme pour le poète et l’amant, écrit-il, «toute l’action se fonde sur l’infime mais tragique fêlure par laquelle se trahit ce qu’il y a d’inachevé (littéralement : d’infini) dans notre condition». Paru en 1938, ce texte, essentiel dans l’œuvre de Leiris, est devenu le classique de la littérature tauromachique, indispensable pour contrer les détracteurs de la corrida.

Paperback, sewn. Reading fold in the spine and bend in the upper left corner. Small tear in the back of the cover (see photos).

Including an old French newspaper article about bull fighting (newspaper and date unknown).
