Robert Graves – The Scream (The Shout)

676

 

 Anguish of the Absolute

A mysterious and spooky man falls into the life of a young couple and upsets their existences.
Short and striking novel that, in a crescendo of tension and anguish, pulls the reader into the folds of an unknown and malefic power, in balance between knowledge and supernatural.
From Graves’ text, the film “The Australian” (1978) was adapted and directed by Jerzy Skolimowski. Both worthy.
