HASH(0xa27c9024) out of 5 stars Open Your Eyes... Dec 15 2011
By Review - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
At all costs, do not buy this book if you are looking for a clear and concise guide to reading Tarot cards. Instead, what Enrique proposes is a radical perspective which brings the images to vibrant life through analogical thinking and poetic metaphor. In true dervish style, Enriquez challenges us into terrains uncharted by almost any other Tarot theorist out there--to a place where profound understanding precedes intellectual rationale and genuine art is made in the moment. You have been warned...

HASH(0xa38dfd98) out of 5 stars I love this book! Feb. 8 2013
By C. Reed - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Who knows how many books come out every year on the Tarot. The vast majority of them seem to be the same book paraphrased over and over again-penned perhaps by robots sitting in La Maison Dieu. There are exceptions, of course. Alejandro Jodorowsky's book being one that comes to mind.

None but this one, as far as I know, propose such exquisite and impossible ideas as this: "Our aim is not to arrive at an ultimate truth, but to stop, albeit briefly, at an exception made true." or "Instead of using a sequence of cards to arrive at some form of meaning, meaning-making will be the means through which we arrive at a sequence of cards, in a process that would have the Marseille Tarot shuffling itself."

For those of us nourished by the milk of dada, surrealism, and all that followed, and all that came before .. for those of us who incline towards the artist's, or the poet's sensibility, this book is a delight. It is not, as another reviewer has said, a crib or an introduction to the Tarot. But it would be a great second book to read on the Tarot, wherever you may have begun.

Thank you Enrique for your humor, irony, playfulness and brilliance!

HASH(0xa2dedc60) out of 5 stars Poetics of Tarot: Embodiment, Movement, Rhythm Sept. 21 2012
By Camelia Elias - Published on
Format: Paperback
In 'Tarology', going from pataphysics to poetry and back again, Enrique Enriquez performs tarot in a way that is marvelously free of cultural preconditioning to the workings of myth and symbol, while at the same time proposing following the rules of 'watch and learn', 'keep it simple', 'stay on track', 'be surprised', 'be fearless', and 'let the image talk the walk'. This is no small achievement.

HASH(0xa27e47a4) out of 5 stars Mind Opening Cookie-Cutter Dispelling Diagnosis for Tarot Reading Jan. 18 2012
By P. Nagy - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
EyeCorner Press has collected and published a healthy collection of EE's pataphysical tarot experiments and examples of his performance based poetic readings. TAROLOGY is a book to inspire and confound tarot readers.
Unlike umpteen tarot-how-tos or recipe books on basic card reading and manipulation of the cards, TAROLOGY (ISBN 978-87-92633-12-5) is for the truly adept tarotist or tarososophist, struck by symbol glut or associationist salad into a state of occult ennui.
If your readings seem staid to the point of boredom, a bit of serious perusal of Enrique Enriquez's TAROLOGY may nudge one out of subconscious doldrums into a wondrous state of poetic afflatus and may, at its very least, encourage tarotists to take lessons from poetry and the poets, those universal editors of the divine utterance or oracular tarot readings.

HASH(0xa4375858) out of 5 stars When you have LE MONDE make LEMONDADE July 15 2014
By Alex - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For me this is the most important work on the Tarot that I have encountered so far. The reason for such a statement is because the book allows for new ideas to exist and not just Tarot-wise, just new and fresh ideas, concepts, outlooks, in looks. With the help of this book I was able to restructure the way that I viewed LE MONDE. You can too. But please don't take my WORD for it.
