Claim to Oblivion : Selected Essays and Interviews (Paperback) (Yuriy Tarnawsky)
about this item
Literary Nonfiction. Are you still wondering who is that boy at the beginning of Bergman'sPersona and what the ****** movie is all about? And what is the point of those near-silent seven minutes at the end of Antonioni'sL'Eclisse? And what happens if you break the rules that Shklovsky thinks are the foundation of prose? And how wouldThe Great Gatsby sound if written in super short sentences? And what about that big 450 page-long joke of a bookThree Blondes and Death that was more than 20 years in the making? And ditto about theModus Tollens: Improvised Poetic Devices collection the author calls heuristic poetry? You can find out this and much, much more in Yuriy Tarnawsky's CLAIM TO OBLIVION some early readers have called "terrific." Will you?
