Summary/Abstract: In one of his published articles, Blecher writes about the concept of repetition and the individual‘s desire to relive a past moment in the fullness of its quality. Adventures is such an endeavour – from the perspective of anamnesis, the narrator returns following the time line, living in a double way: nostalgically and textually recomposed – as the two experiences are reintegrated into the present. Thus, the author, much like the melancholic young man of the ―unrealities,‖ turns back in time, walking back in his footsteps, perhaps deepening them up to the Yeti contour of the writing, so as not to be caught in the symbolic and reductive loop of immediate reality. The only means to cheat death and the platitude of existence – crushed and immobilized in plaster – is the ―card game.‖
