Revue de presse
"The Doors of Perception
is a poignant book, partly because it reveals the human frailties and yearnings of a very cerebral writer" (Financial Times
"You can look at Aldous Huxley
and draw parallels with the Beatles: Crome Yellow
and Those Barren Leaves
were his breakthrough Merseybeat books, Point Counter Point
was his 'Revolver', with The Doors of Perception
his full-blown Sergeant Pepper trip. Like the Beatles, Huxley had so many ideas in his head that it was natural he would want to expand and experiment. What drugs provided for them both was not escape, but reevaluation" (The Times
"There is nothing the pen of Huxley touches which it does not illuminate, and as the record of a highly civilised, brilliantly articulate man under the influence of an astonishing drug, The Doors of Perception
is a tour de force" (Daily Telegraph

Présentation de l'éditeur
Half an hour after swallowing the drug I became aware of a slow dance of golden lights . . .
Among the most profound explorations of the effects of mind-expanding drugs ever written, here are two complete classic books—The Doors of Perception and Heaven and Hell—in which Aldous Huxley, author of the bestselling Brave New World, reveals the mind's remote frontiers and the unmapped areas of human consciousness. This new edition also features an additional essay, "Drugs That Shape Men's Minds," which is now included for the first time.
