Summary/Abstract: Cornul inorogului (The Unicorn's Horn) by Bogdan Cretu imposes a new episteme of eros: the experiment that tests the body, which removes taboos, prejudices and shows how far one can compete with one's own body. Intimacy is the only space in which the truth can be articulated, in which you can still be identical with yourself, contemporary with what you are in essence. The novel is also a journey in the history of erotic imaginary; it is a reinvention of the impediment and a rediscovery of erotic tension and intensity. The characters are projections of mythological consciousness , from the perspective of which art is always in full synchrony with life. Cornul inorogului (The Unicorn's Horn) is a novel about eros, death, literature and the electrifying connections between them.
