The paper interprets the collection of stories as a unified generic whole with precedents in the literary canon of former Yugoslavia and in world literature. The stories, united by the sujet of suffering, play with the transgression of myths, from Ancient to Christian, in order to establish sacrilege as poetics and as the necessity of writing.
