As Parr and Badger wrote of the book Toros Muertos, Clergue's depiction of the professional bull ring makes it difficult to tell whether he is "pro or anti-bullfightling. That is the book's great strength. By applying immediacy and spontaneity to a specific event, [putting] us in the position of a participant rather than a spectator, giving us all the evidence we need to make up our minds."

Very faint surface scratch, visible only in raked light, left side of image (emulsion unaffected); otherwise excellent.
