Elvis Presley liked very much to read good reports about himself. He really enjoyed the artful photographs, taken by others of him. Photographers of his time saw in Elvis not only the great artist, but also a rebirth of the mythological Narcissus, a person who is in love with himself.

'THE HOARDERS AND WASTERS', woodcut # 54 by Salvador Dalí, illustrating Stanza # 20. This is the most mysterious of all the woodcuts in Dalí's series, which combines many elements of his style. He locates the souls in a rocky landscape, with stone arches which resemble a gate. On closer examination, the faces are recognizable. In the distance we can see mountains. On the left side of the picture, a fisherman is seen running with his net over his shoulder. It is a figure which we encounter often in Dalí's works, and which reminds us of the coasts of Port Lligat and Cadaques. For our article, see Dante and the Rein of Avarice ...
