Description
"Once Again for Thucydides" is a collection of seventeen "micro-epics" written on trips around the world. In each brief journal entry, Handke concentrates on small things he observes, trying to capture their essence, their "simple, unadorned validity". What results is a work or remarkable precision, in which he uncovers the general appearance of random objects and discovers their inner working and mystery.
