John Barth Î 3 summary

John Barth Î 3 summary Eherazade's kid sister holds the destiny of herself and the prince who holds her captivePerseus the demigod who slew the Gorgon Medusa finds himself at forty battling. This is uite simply one of the best novels I’ve readModern readers will miss some of its texture as it needs to be understood within its proper context This book came out of the Novel is Dead debates of the late 60s and early 70s and can be partly interpreted as a shot across the bows on behalf of the Novel Is Still Alive and Kicking crewFor starters it was an experiment in form – three intertwined novellas adding up to a novel worth way than its parts Then there was the playing with time and the very meta juggling of story types and tropes my favourite being the Golden Rectangular FreitagBut it can also be read as a rollicking yarn – the terrible plight of Scheherazade; the adventures of Perseus and Medusa; retold in a playful modern sense and involving even the author as a characterFunny brilliant and for a would be novelist like me – very humbling to see how far I am from the genius of the masters
