Dreams of the Caucasus PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Dreams of the Caucasus free pdf Readers will search these pages in vain for coverage of Tbilisi or Ararat, or praise for Georgian wine or Armenian brandy ...although Khachaturian gets an adjective of his own in (all too typically) a piece addressing the post-war architecture of Plymouth. Those familiar with Werner Herzog's masterwork The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser will, however, pick up the reference to Kaspar's dream-and, accordingly, much of this retrospective selection of prose-poems deals in the 'remote viewing' that Herzog's flickering rendition of that dream celebrates. For here are places both far and near, unknown and known ...from the Sahara Desert to the Tamar Valley, from the doomed flatlands of Bla Tarr's Hungarian puszta to the equally-doomed shores of WG Sebald and Brian Eno's Dunwich.
