Description

What if the moon were another world for which ours served as a moon? An absurd notion, but one which leads our narrator to travel to a paradisaical world in which he is a monster, a malfunction of Nature and a myth. The dream quickly becomes a nightmare though when the ruling ecclesiastical courts condemn him for his heretical thinking and illicit beliefs. As viewed from the moon, the philosophical, scientific, anthropocentric and religious certitudes which reign on earth seem trivial and this Baroque novel, a masterpiece of Libertine literature, emerges before us an unprecedented example of relativisation.

Author Biography
