D gives people in Britain the opportunity to experience this gem of a novel that has already delighted hundreds of thousands of readers across Europ. According to Isaiah Berlin's famous typology Baricco is a 'hedgehog' writer In his work he doggedly continues to explore the large variety of strategies deployed by human beings to deal with the predicament of being thrown into a chaotic and unfathomable world We tell stories create art measure and uantify play games and develop rituals All this frenetic activity constitutes a 'symbolic' realm that is as vital for people to live together on this Earth as the air they breathe The master builders and players amongst us may leave a lasting legacy of sublime creations But the euivocal nature of these symbolic constructs leads to lots of misunderstandings and conflicts as well Stories morph into ideologies; rituals turn into bondage; games into bloodshed So half blind and confused and sometimes dumb and stubborn we stumble along in this life Baricco's poetic imagination revolves around an 'aesthetic of the instant' Very often his protagonists are confronted with an epiphany a momentary suspension of non sense a tear in the symbolic veil that shields us from the inexpressible realness of the world In Baricco's work these epiphanies occur in a great variety of settings in nature in interpersonal relationships even in battle Often the person who is touched by these revelations has something of the character of a 'holy fool' The background to this story is the legacy of war and the vicious cycle of revenge that breeds conflict upon conflict Baricco shows his readers how this destructive dynamic is suspended by an image of purity and perfection that arises at the very moment of bloodshed An aesthetic rupture that forces the protagonist out of the symbolic cycle of violence and onto the fulcrum of a moral dilemma 'to kill or not to kill' To know how the dilemma is resolved you'll have to read the story Without Blood is not Baricco's at his best but it is worth rereading every ten years or so City Silk Mr Gwyn and uesta Storia remain my favourites
