What if we were really bad during all our life, so as to be surely forgiven just by repenting of our faults at the end, as Baravas ?

The seven deadly sins are pushed to the edge and create heresies.

Stories from Mythology and the Bible, tales and other classic works are taking an unlikely turn as Stamatis Dagdelenis demonstrates wittingly that their meaning can be very different if we slightly change them.

An alternative reading of the world’s knowledge.

Stories from Mythology and Literature, tales and other classic works are taking an unlikely turn as Stamatis Dagdelenis demonstrates wittingly that their meaning can be very different if we slightly change them.

This is the second part of re-creation of mythology by Stamatis Dagdelenis. Literature, mythology, religion myths and philosophy mix to give as a new alphabet of understanding.

A woman who works miracles. A salesgirl whose hormones go berserk. The external form of a man called Stefanos, shifts and changes continuously. A ghost returns. Charyvdis shuts herself up in her house forever, along with her no-name dog. A pair of twelve year old Siamese twins are separated. A man pounds his lover into smithereens as if he were dry herbs. A massacre at an American high school. In the midst of these tales, the author oversees the subjects of his experiments in the manner of a surgeon.  With invisible scalpels he conjoins and divides: carnivorous plants, dogs, cats, little ants, a swan, elephants, Beethoven in the sky and other sights, both familiar and eerie. And on occasion, he even enters himself into the shifting sands of the stories.
