Books of Milorad Pavic

All works of Milorad Pavic, without exception, are masterpieces. Each is unique in its kind, and leaves a trace in memory. His novels can finally satisfy your aesthetic hunger and the aftertaste is long…

He uses metaphors, that is why he can be described by metaphors. He is like Bach’s music, and like any genius is difficult to explain.

His books have a therapeutic effect, because the reality he creates is not certain. As soon as you find the path of reality, and start thinking- here is my familiar world where the laws of everyday life are in force – you immediately fall into dream. Somebody said that he writes as we dream. The world he offers is not definite and final. You need to relax and plunge into his fantastic reality. One of the heroines from Terrifying Love Stories explained our need of control using chess as example. She said something like this.

Take a black chessman and under the black paint you will see its white soul of the tree from which it is made. I want to say that it does not matter how the chessmen differ from outside, all of them, black and white, are, in fact, half white- half black and the struggle between black and white is inside each of them. This inner struggle can not be affected by chess moves that you think about. The game involves not so much the two warring armies; the field on which they move is also involved. As soon as they are on a black field, black in white and black in black, that is, evil spirits in the people and evil spirits in the evil spirits draw strength from this dark surface of this dark ground. Conversely, as soon as they appear on a white field, the support comes to the light, which is in the humans and the evil spirits playing in the party. So not only light and dark secrets have the fight inside of the chess figures, but the ground beneath their feet is also involved. How can you have your pathetic moves to influence the outcome of events? Why play a game in which you are no one and nothing?

Pavic’s books are mystical, amazing and deep. His texts are reach, many phrases may become a famous quote. In one of the stories Pavic talks about beauty, that it is so hard to create, so much effort is spent on it. In contact with the beautiful, we feel relieved, knowing that when the overall energy in the world was distributed, we were released from a known amount of labor. The efforts of others, invested in the beauty, reduced our share of fatigue, saved from a certain expenditure of energy, that is why we can enjoy it. In beauty we just rest…

While reading Milorad Pavic’s books you just rest…
