The Lie of the Truth

René Daumal

Regular price $21.00

In this brief, dense essay, Daumal bids us to resist the very notion of the truth, and to recognize it as an artistic and metaphysical dead-end.

René Daumal (1908-1944) was a French poet and writer often associated with surrealism (though he fought against the label), spiritualism, and 'pataphysics. He is perhaps best remembered for the posthumously published novel, Mount Analogue (1952).
