Book Description

Jan. 1 1990 0929701062 978-0929701066
Voyage is at the heart of all narrative, and in the seven thoroughly original tales comprising All the Errors the voyages are heightened into a condition of metaphysical urgency. One story is the valedictory address of a soul about to be born. Another tale tells of a labyrinth that seems to describe its own pathways. Forming another, two monologues are interlaced, tracing the disavowals of love between a man and a woman. The principal characters of another story are Fires, Essences, Lights, Places, Edified Beasts, Centers, Thrones, Thunders, and Rings—and this cosmology of abstraction is brought into an almost palpable presence. In still another fable, the narrator journeys on foot with an unknown itinerary, propelled through an unchanging landscape awash with deja vu. Far more than the sum of its parts, this challenging work is also Giorgio Manganelli’s long-awaited debut in the English language.

Product Description

From Library Journal

This is the first English translation of work by Manganelli, a well-known Italian author and critic, proponent of the neo-avant-garde. He sees literature as language only, an artificial construction and a mental game. His material is fragments of our consciousness and experience; he writes probing analyses of states of mind and relationship in showy, artful language. Only two of the book's seven monologs are understandable: the first, about a soul being born, and the last, a hauntingly beautiful tale about a betrothal. The rest are supercerebral and accessible only to the experts. Recommended for large literature collections in academic libraries.
