Summary "Sebastian's Arrows is an intelligent selection and translation of letters, texts (some previously unpublished), and images, including an introduction and notes, by Christopher Maurer, giving the general reader, student, and scholar insight into the lives of two exceptional artists." "Written between 1925 and 1936, the letters tell of a friendship that began in the Residencia de Estudiantes, Madrid, where the two waged war against cultural "putrefaction" and the sacred cows of Spanish art. Distinct portraits emerge. The letters - some never before published in English - reveal the intimacies of friendship and the skirmishes and "crossed swords" of poetry and art."--BOOK JACKET
