Love Me But Do Not Fall In Love With Me. Contemporary Absurd Theater

by Ana Maria Ducuta

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available

My first Ebook focuses on how absurdism can be transformed by spirituality and if this transformation annihilates or emphasizes  the nihilist dimension of absurdism. I have reinterpreted the classical concepts of existential absurd literature by adding a spiritual dimension to it. 


My theater of the absurd is the space where completely empty and lost characters come to find a new meaning and an explanation that helps them to transcend the initial stage of absurdism to the final stage of self-aware absurdism that can be assumed and dealt with as a second personality and as an alternative to an irrational universe that rejects them.
