French writer Simon Liberati discusses the similarities and contrasts between early 20th century writers and their versions of “The Mexican Dream.”
“I have just reread A Voyage to Land of the Tarahumara, and the contrast between Artaud’s madly precise dryness and the decadent velvet of Breton’s recollections casts this imaginary, twice dreamt Mexico into stark relief. On one side is the sun and sacrifice; on the other, the Surrealist church and half darkness.”
