Summary/Abstract: Our Years in Love (1985) and Parallel Relations (1988) only cover a period of ten years: from1947 to 1956. Bull Monastery covers thirty. The first volume is that of youth, full of blaze, energy,impulse, irony and eroticism. Sweeping style, vibrating action, spiced up with colourful sexual images.Bull Monastery is a novel of manhood and, simultaneously, of the case history of absurdity (a slovenlysociety – using Elemér Hankiss’s term), full of painful nostalgia, memories, bitterness, frustration,resignation, and desperate, “opposing” pantheism just for the sake of it: insistence on the sincere loveof sincere nature. It is slower-moving but none the less witty in style for it, with a flow of internalmonologues disguised as long dialogues, anecdotes radiating a wry atmosphere, philosophicalthoughts, and a manic adoration of the truth.”
