blood feud as classic tragedy,
By A Customer
This review is from: Broken April (Panther) (Paperback)
Set in Albania in the 1930s when blood feuding functioned as the only effective system of government. This is a tragedy of classic Greek dimension, a sociological essay, a modernist novel of hysteria, an existentialist myth, all combined. Kadare is a novelist of world status.
