The Flowers of the Abyss

The Flowers of the Abyss



Thanasis Valtinos

Hestia Publishers, 2008
209 p.
ISBN 978-960-05-1360-8, [In Print]
Price € 10,70

The new and eagerly-awaited work by Thanassis Valtinos, written in the form of a screenplay, takes us back to the world of the poet Dionysios Solomos: the 19th century, the British Commission, Solomos's last journey to Zakynthos; the poet in the shadow of the family scandals that plagued his solitary course. The court battle with his half-brother Ioannis Leontarakis is not yet over. Suffering vilification, in his attempt to protect his fortune and title, the poet comes against his mother, Angeliki. Fifty-eight scenes, one perfect portrait; the unexpurgated Solomos. As Valtinos himself claims in the first pages of the book: “Narcissism, animosity, touchiness, turning one's back on friends, all these things are not virtues. But this is the stuff poets are made of. I wonder why your scholars almost systematically avoid touching upon these properties. Obviously they consider them to be your dark side. The one that enthralls me.”
