An excellent choice of brief tales, fables, and satires. outdoors of the longest brief tale (almost novella size fairly, "The Masquerade of Souls" is sort of ninety pages), this can be what I learn yesterday.
The non-satirical stories contain motifs that run via Lagerkvist's fiction: man's position within the glossy international; modernism as opposed to a pastoral traditionalism; topics related to spiritual existentialism and man's position within the world....you recognize the routine.
The satire might be deeply a laugh. "The Children's Campaign" is a mirrored image on militarism and the way it's perpetuated when it comes to describing the winning army crusade of a child's military opposed to a lesser country. one of many higher tales within the bunch.
I hugely suggest "Paradise"--a brief tale approximately God and his creations (specifically, guy and the Tree of Knowledge). On a primary interpreting of the booklet, I'd say it used to be my favorite.
Lagerkvist is now not good represented at the tracker....But i believe I do have one or extra ebooks that replicate my hardcopies (like this anthology). Please depart a observe if you'd like me to prioritize different books of this Nobel Prize winner.
