    When I was asked to choose a myth to write about, I realized I had chosen already. The story of Atlas holding up the world was in my mind before the telephone call had ended. If the call had not come, perhaps I would never have written the story, but when the call did come, that story was waiting to be written. Rewritten

    In ancient Greek mythology Atlas, a member of the original race of gods called Titans, leads a rebellion against the new deities, the Olympians. For this he incurs divine wrath: the victorious Olympians force Atlas, guardian of the Garden of Hesperides and its golden apples of life, to bear the weight of the earth and the heavens for eternity. When the hero Heracles, as one of his famous twelve labours, is tasked with stealing these apples he seeks out Atlas, offering to shoulder the world temporarily if the Titan will bring him the fruit. Knowing that Heracles is the only person with the strength to take his burden, and enticed by the prospect of even a short-lived freedom, Atlas agrees and an uneasy partnership is born. With her typical wit and verve, Jeanette Winterson brings Atlas into the twenty-first century. Simultaneously, she asks her own difficult questions about the nature of choice and coercion, and how we forge our own destiny

    Atlas ou Le gai savoir inquiet by Georges Didi-Huberman( Book )
    3 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 32 libraries worldwide
    À quiconque s'interroge sur le rôle des images dans notre connaissance de l'histoire, l'atlas Mnémosyne apparaît comme une oeuvre-phare, un véritable moment de rupture épistémologique. Composé, mais constamment démonté, remonté, par Aby Warburg entre 1924 et 1929, il ouvre un nouveau chapitre dans ce qu'on pourrait nommer, à la manière de Michel Foucault, une archéologie du savoir visuel. C'est une enquête " archéologique ", en effet, qu'il aura fallu mener pour comprendre la richesse inépuisable de cet atlas d'images qui nous fait voyager de Babylone au XXe siècle, de l'Orient à l'Occident, des astra les plus lointains (constellations d'idées) aux monstra les plus proches (pulsions viscérales), des beautés de l'art aux horreurs de l'histoire. Ce livre raconte, par un montage de " gros plans " plutôt que par un récit continu, les métamorphoses d'Atlas, ce titan condamné par les dieux de l'Olympe à ployer indéfiniment sous le poids du monde, en atlas, cette forme visuelle et synoptique de connaissance dont nous comprenons mieux, aujourd'hui
