ring The Italian Pleasures Gabriele Paterkallos
In the creation of THE ITALIAN PLEASURES OF GABRIELE PATERKALLOS, brilliant young author and Byronic/Homeric scholar, Pietros Maneos, has rediscovered the importance and impact of an epistolary correspondence.
Before knowledge and culture were trivialized by the internet and media sound bites, and intellectuals were branded as nerds, all important knowledge was conveyed through the journals and letters of eminent scientists, historians, politicians, poets, authors, and theologians who were then known and respected scholars and worthy intellectuals.
The great historiographer, Georg Hegel, took this epistolary knowledge to a new dimension by creating and perfecting the dialectic--a method by which two people of knowldege come to learn from each other through conversation--spoken or written--and as a result come to a higher understanding, thus advancing civilization through the acquisition of higher, broader knowledge.
Maneos, in his epistolary work, has skillfully brought this form of intellectualism back to life. And, you, the reader will be wooed, seduced, and captivated by the character of Gabriele Paterkallos through his on-going epistolary relationship with Odysseus Pane.
Maneos' challenging and engrossing style is enhanced by his adept skill as a wordsmith, thus bring ing about a style of prose that is melodic and poetic. As a result, THE ITALIAN PLEASURES OF GABRIELE PATERKALLOS is a beautifully orchestrated novella.
Many accolates to Mr. Maneos for bring ing this type of literary correspondence back to life. Hence, Pietros Maneos has advanced the classic notions of art and beauty--Intellectualism is indeed Reborn!
