How have the world great writers thought and which of their works have made them famous in the entire world, especially since the 1920s when serious changes occurred in the history of world literature?
The program "Selected Literary Works" not only presents the literary heritage and lives of foreign writers, but also tries to reveal the spirit and merits of their famous works.
The broadcast is dedicated to Japanese prose writer and playwright Kōbō Abe who especially gained fame thanks to these three novels: "The Woman in the Dunes," "The Face of Another," and "The Ruined Map." His protagonists are individuals who run from the world and reality and who desire to preserve their souls, fight, and overcome hard situations. The plays of Abe, who has won many literary prizes, are also very popular. They were staged by the author himself in the Kōbō Abe Studio created by him.
