    Pokoušení Epub ì Paperback pokoušení book, Pokoušení ePUBI have wanted to read Václav Havel's play 'Temptation' for a long time I finally got around to reading itThe story told in 'Temptation' goes like this In the office of a scientific institute some scientists are lounging around The Deputy Director and Director walk in They all have a brief conversation The Director tells everyone that some strange things are happening at the institute which needs to be investigated It later turns out that he was implying that someone was dabbling in the occult Later the scene shifts to one of the scientists Foustka's house And we discover that Foustka is the one dabbling in the occult Then a mysterious stranger visits Foustka Without saying anything directly the stranger refers to the party in Foustka's institute later in the evening and tells him that he wants to help Foustka and make a deal with him Interesting things h

    Pokoušení Epub ì Paperback pokoušení book, Pokoušení ePUBTemptation by Vaclav HavelTemptation may be excellent andtempting but alas not for this readerFor reasons that have nothing to do with the play I played it while running one of the past mornings but failed to get itWe live through troubled times here with elections and some financial and emotional turmoil which probably has an impact on what I can absorbFor this encounter I could not immerse in the playAnother time Insha’Allah

    Pokoušení Epub ì Paperback pokoušení book, Pokoušení ePUBAn interesting take on the original Faust Havel uses the backdrop of a scientific institute's crusade against mysticism to speak out against totalitarian restrictions on intellectual and philosophical pursuits Layers of deceit and duplicity both internal and external are framed within a repetitive landscape of scenes to underline their existence in the commonplace and illustrate how logic and desire can be used to suppress logic and desire
