KIRKUS REVIEW

Well...Hello Dali, Goya, Ernst, Blake, Callot, Cranach etc. After an introduction that gives you more than a nodding acquaintance with the Devil and his cohorts, Mr. Daniel, author of Adventures in Art, sets you loose in the ""wild country of sleeping reason."" More than 250 black and white illustrations indicate that man's furies are sometimes an artist's inspiration. Torment is the major motif with the viewer a willing victim. A Calibanistic collection. And so to bed?
