From the Publisher
This is a collection of stories where every piece is part of a different universe. The only connection among them is that they all pay tribute to classic literature of all times. One of them is a reference to Shakespeare’s Venus and Adonis. Another one is inspired by Hermann Hesse’s inner search philosophy; there is also a story where a timid student poses a question of how misanthropy is viewed by authors such as Edgar A. Poe, Dostoyevsky, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Henry Miller. The book is a sample of voices of different times and geographies, from Medieval Italy to the Wild West, from modern cities nowadays to a visit to future society. Like an odd epilogue, the collection closes with a fallen poem.
