The Helmet of Horror : The Myth of Theseus and the Minotaur
Celebrated Russian novelist Victor Pelevin creates a mesmerizing world where the surreal and the hyperreal collide. The Helmet of Horror, a radical retelling of the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur, is set in an Internet chat room
The iconoclastic and wildly interesting contemporary Russian novelist whom The New Yorker named one of the Best European Writers Under 35 upends any conventional notions of what mythology must be with his unique take on the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur.The Helmet of Horror is structured according to the way we communicate in the twenty-first century--using the Internet--yet instilled with the figures and narratives of classical mythology
"A brilliant new telling of the myth . . . Pelevin has updated this myth in an absurd and terrifying metaphysical consideration of the labyrinths in which we all find ourselves and the traps we willingly enter as we move through our lives."
