9781859642917: The Experiment

Myrto Azina Chronides's book attempts to unify subtly connected narratives, partial tales that lean toward the structure of a more synthetic prose piece, but which cannot be regarded as either novella or novel. The book does not fit within any traditional genre of creative prose. The Experiment can be characterized as ‘a study on erotic love and the soul’. From the beginning, He and She, take a pledge to undergo an ‘experiment’, retrace erotic love and their relation by abstaining from carnal contact so as to devote themselves to writing. She, ‘a woman in perpetual search’ is an unbowed woman who claims her freedom; and He, ‘a wise man, a believer in the Socratic “All I know is that I know nothing” ’, are invited to participate in the experiment in equal terms. The erotic couple is called to recognize through writing and literature the Other, his/her other half, his/her mate and eventually the Self as Other. Despite the darkness that pervades the conclusion of the book, one may detect hints of the lovely flower of love and writing emerging through the ordeal and torture of prose. The question remains; what about the other things, the unwritten ones, those that lie in the land of silence? Apparently, both neo post-modernist (contemporary) literature and The Experiment would rather an open, indefinite ending.

Book Description Garnet Publishing Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Experiment can be described as a study of erotic love and the soul . The two main characters undertake to write a play together, as an experiment, to see if they can succeed where others have failed, in achieving true collaboration and union through their writing. The result of this experiment is a stream of consciousness and a collection of tales in which themes such as love, sex, religious ecstasy, psychiatry and myth are intertwined. The book s style is unique, as it attempts to unify subtly connected narratives, partial tales that lean toward the structure of a more synthetic prose piece, but which cannot be regarded as either novella or novel. The book in its original Greek was awarded the prestigious European Prize for Literature in 2010. The aim of this prize is to put the spotlight on the creativity and diverse wealth of Europe s contemporary literature in the field of fiction, to promote the circulation of literature within Europe and encourage greater interest in non-national literary works. Translated into English, The Experiment offers the reader a unique and enriching reading experience which transcends literary and cultural norms. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9781859642917
