GÁCS ZSÓFIA

[In Antal Szerb’s novel, The Pendragon Legend, which was first published in 1934 (its first English translation came out in 1963), the excentric Earl of Gwynedd experiments with strange creatures. Rea­ding the book based on mystic elements as well as their mockery, the reader gets quite a bizarre knowledge of axolotls. In this re­view, a detailed history of this amphi­bian (Ambystoma mexicanum) in Western scientific research is offered; beside the scientific data, of which presumably Antal... tovább »
