    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

    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

    "After tackling the planets, Atlas is now taking a tour of the earth in this new book for all ages.

Growing restless and craving adventure, Atlas decided to take the world in his hands and become one of the Earth's newest heroes."--P. [4] of cover
