The String Quartet

Jos Langens • Boek • paperback

  • Samenvatting
    Have you ever thought about how you as a human being are part of a species that makes the fate of all other living things entirely subservient to its own needs and uses its fellow inhabitants purely to meet those needs?

    What would happen if that were to change? What would happen if people chose to exchange that which makes them human for something else? That’s what seems to be happening in “The String Quartet”.

    A string of seemingly inexplicable events gradually reveals how our anthropocentric way of life is about to be fundamentally and irrevocably changed. Classical string quartet music plays a central role in these events. How do these situations arise, and what is the driving force behind the sometimes irrational choices people make – or seem to make – of their own free will?

    The events described in The String Quartet and the resulting choices people make invite you as a reader to reflect on your own situation and how you lead your life. What choices have you made, and what choices will you make in the future?

    And how sure are you that those choices are yours?

Alexander Glazunov - Elegy for String Quartet, opus 105 (1928)

He tried to open his eyes. They felt sticky. He tried to pull them
up with his eyebrows. Did he have them open and was it pitch black, or
did he still have them closed because his eyelids were stuck together?
He tried looking left and right and rolling his eyes, but all he could see
was black. At least, assuming his eyes were open. He listened carefully.
Complete silence. He couldn’t hear a thing. Maybe there was something
wrong with his ears. Maybe he was completely deaf! He suddenly felt
overcome by an intense fear. Am I still alive? Am I dead? The thought
flashed through his mind. Wait, can I move? If I can move, then I’m
probably still alive, he thought. He carefully tried to move his fingers... ×
