Philip, the protagonist, is a troubled and disillusioned intellectual who hopes that his return home will inspire him to create a perfect work of art, and thereby transform his life. The Croatian Miroslav Krleza was born in 1893. After fighting in the Great War he changed from an idealistic lyricist enchanted with life and nature to an embittered and pessimistic individual. He was among the most neglected of the world's great writers.
