"Celelalte lumi" ale lui Eugen Curta sau labirintul metalepselor narative

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The author proves a very good knowledge of the most subtle and diverse narrative methods up to the point of suspecting him of affectedness in writing: he seems to enjoy drawing up the most fanciful frameworks of a novel’s design. Each new fragment is being narrated from a certain character’s point of view, the abundant prospects achieving the equivocation of the whole story up to the absurd. Some of the initial doubtless information will come to be uncertain. The author’s voice is hanging over, self-centred, narcissist; a character itself insinuating to indulge in the part of puppeteer of all. The narrator recounts – to us or to him, an unsolved issue – using first person, as if in a liberating confession, seemingly banal deeds of his rather dull and washed-out existence. Reading through the lines we distinguish however the condition of the author expounding his project to write the novel in the making. The author narrator devises compensatory the other worlds of his novel. They are fictitious worlds where he can unburden and where he can ultimately evade to, in order to live thoroughly, untroubled the illusions, the Utopias, the small or big conceitedness or vanities. The narrator proposes, for himself the bookish perception of existence, living the reality according to certain unreal, fictitious experiences.
