Le taureau ne manque apparemment pas de porte-parole : les aficionados affirment en son nom que l'arène est le lieu parfait de l'expression de son essence d'animal combatif, tandis que les opposants affirment, en son nom également, que rien ne justifie l. a. souffrance qu'il suffer dans l'arène.
Entre héroïsme et barbarie, le taureau dit donc une selected et son contraire. Cette contradiction dans le discours du taureau, tel qu'il est porté par les uns et par les autres, est particulièrement intéressante et amène une autre query, celle du travail avec les animaux. Quel rôle l. a. corrida donne-t-elle au taureau ? Dans l'arène, l'homme et le taureau sont-ils partenaires ou adversaires ? Quelle est l. a. position de los angeles souffrance et de los angeles mort - mort du taureau ou mort de l'homme - dans l. a. tauromachie ? Peut-on toréer sans l. a. mort ? Les réponses apportées dans cet ouvrage permettent de dépasser le caractère binaire des débats et de comprendre ce qui est en jeu dans los angeles relation tauromachique en tant que relation de travail avec les taureaux.
Au fil des chapitres, le lecteur pourra s'informer, s'émouvoir, s'étonner et, nous l'espérons, être plus à même de raisonner de manière éclairée.
