Giuseppe Genna – The nonpermanent polar camels’ speech to men



The ambiguity of wisdom

Despite recalling a mythological story and a little moral work, this Speech by Giuseppe Genna it’s a writing impossible to define, a literary anomaly just like the natural anomaly of the polar camels in the book. These camels show immense wisdom and level with our spiritual masters but, in the end, they reveal themselves to be very different from what they look like. A smart allegory of our times, but not only, made by one of the few, true intellectuals we have left. Not for the lazy reader.
