CARTHAGO DELENDA EST is Constantine Sult's raw, violent and poetic rendering of the resistance of man to the concept of concrete identity, and of the desperate longing to find expression through only abstraction and self reference. Ten year old runaway Dimitri Kaske lives at two train stations or in transit between them, subsisting on petty theft, spare change from commuters and free meals from various staff at station restaurants. Suffering from a severe concussion after being injured in a fight, he learns that case workers have posted his description throughout the transit system. His incoherent state leads to feelings of betrayal and intense persecution, as well as to increasingly violent acts of self abuse.
