Adventures of Sindbad

In these marvellously written tales, Sindbad, a voyager in the realms of memory and imagination, travels through the centuries in pursuit of an ideal of love that is directed as much at the feminine essence as at his individual lovers Whether the women he seduces and loves are projections of his desire, or he of theirs, is a moot question.These short stories flow without In these marvellously written tales, Sindbad, a voyager in the realms of memory and imagination, travels through the centuries in pursuit of an ideal of love that is directed as much at the feminine essence as at his individual lovers Whether the women he seduces and loves are projections of his desire, or he of theirs, is a moot question.These short stories flow without a strict narrative framework Sindbad journeys between the past and the present and is merely a ghost in many of his adventures Although Sindbad can move through time, it is time that proves his chief enemy, and youth that remains his real love This deeply autumnal book, full of resonances and associations, is an erotic elegy to the dying Habsburg empire
