Calvino, Italo

IN THE CASTLE OF CROSSED DESTINIES Italo Calvino's inspiration turns the seventy-eight tarot-cards to an entirely new use that links image and word to the purposes of narrative- a band of travellers, trapped in an ominous castle in the heart of a wood, find themselves struck dunb, and are only albe to converse by using the tarot cards to tell each other how they came to the castle. Behind the printed images flicker visions of forests, cities, deserts- the garish colours blend to call up Oedipus, Orlando, Macbeth, expand to encompass the private idyll and the universal holocaust.
