He took fiction into new places where it had never been before, and back into the fabulous and ancient sources of narrative. The novel concerns two groups of travelers through a forest, both of which have lost the power to speak as the result of traumatic events. The rigidity of the structure is replaced by the fluidity of the signs.

Geniale nella costruzione geometrica delle storie, raffinatissimo e coltissimo nella scelta dei personaggi che pesca nell'Orlando Furioso, nella mitologia, nelle tragedie di Shakespeare. The three main mythic figures also feature in the basic pattern of the stories: Faust, Parsifal, Oedipus. Fun, in a way, but oddly dissatisfying. A Temperança recorda-me que o Imperador Tempo é implacável e que tenho um Mundo infinito de livros para conhecer antes que a Morte me visite, não devendo ser Louca e desperdiçar vida com o que não me faz feliz. The Castle of Crossed Destinies is one of the rare contemporary Italian works that has been acclaimed for its use of fantastic narrative elements. With just tarot cards at their disposal, though the the tales they create look clichéd, their telling is very much not. Kitabı son cümlesi ile anmak ve tanıtmak istiyorum: Güneş'in gökte dikilip durmasından usandım; artık Dünya'nın sözdizimi bozulsun, oyun kartları, kitabın sayfaları, yıkım aynasının tuzla buz olmuş parçaları birbirine karışsın diye bekliyorum.

Perhaps, this is why Calvino made all his travellers mute in his novel The Castle of Crossed Destinies. His first stories and novel were based on his experiences of the War. The same, although perhaps to a lesser degree, can be said of language. Hey what about a bunch of characters who can only communicate by means of tarot cards? Perec The game presupposes a set of rules, and the rule presupposes a control exerted by the maker. Maybe it would be best if authors didn't publish works just to be free of them themselves.

Interpretations are questioned, and C I like books. This perhaps is best explained in the story of the Ingrate whose tale starts off the Castle section. The novel is an exploration of how meaning is created, whether that be written via words by the author, via the book, since the characters in the book cannot speak to each other or by images the tarot cards — considered prophetic by some, and themselves open to many symbolic interpretations. The yellow and stunted grass and the sand of the desert cover the asphalt and the sidewalks of the city, jackals howl on the dunes, in the palaces abandoned beneath The Moon the windows stand open like hollow eye sockets, rats and scorpions spread from basements and cellars 69.

There's a stop-start quality to the storytelling here that can be exhausting and I'm betting it's why this book has garnered some low marks. In the next story of Roland crazed with love, taken from the Castle section, the feminine form becomes even more threatening. The cards have an important function in the novel, as they act like a wakeup call for the readers, making them realise the shortcomings of human language. In the end there is an enormous spread of cards across the table in which twelve interlaced stories are told. Their powers of speech are magically taken from them and instead they have only tarot cards with which to tell their tales. Some cards are reused in more than one tale, resulting in a tapestry of cards that can be read forward, backward, sideways, slantways, etc. That moment for me was page 38 in the Picador version that I own — at least, that is the moment I truly knew that there are depths to this book I have no hope of ever being able to plumb.

But whatever the drug, this collection of short stories surrounding the obvious use of tarot cards to write stories or re-write common tales or to lay down the structure of alchemy or to just have a plain ole good time is a concept I can love in pure concept terms, and do, but just how much did I love this exact work? Está-se mesmo a ver que só o primeiro objectivo foi cumprido, pois nem mesmo um Mago pode criar talento onde ele não existe; só por artes do Diabo. The Ace of Cups portrays, in fact, a city, with many towers and spires and minarets and domes rising above the walls. Calvino's book is not perfect; the first section, in the castle, is quite a bit more polished and satisfying as a puzzle than the second half in the tavern. He was a journalist and writer of short stories and novels. Perhaps therefore I'm being a little harsh. The entire reading experience of the text becomes multifarious as we read the word and the picture simultaneously. The Hanged Man and The Magician from the Bembo Tarot used for The Castle Aren't those interesting? In sequence after sequence, the cards are arranged to tell the stories of the characters, showing their passions,their hopes, their dreams and their losses.
