for the advanced caravaggist
Saw reference to this title in the Norton Simon lecture "The Moment of Caravaggio" and picked up a copy of the book here on alibris. The usual October leftist Freudian dialogue, obscure French philosphes footnoted; what can I say, I have always been a sucker for this sort of thing. If you are even reading this review, then its likely up your alley as well. Not recommended as a introduction to Caravaggio or his work, but something that will interest the advanced reader or avid semiotician.
