Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Database:WorldCat
Summary:
"Whereas a normal allegory is a surface story that symbolically tells a hidden story, 2001's surface story does something unprecedented in film or literature. It tells three hidden stories: Homer's The Odyssey; a spoofy tale based on science-fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke's idea of man-machine symbiosis; and Nietzsche's magnum opus, Thus Spake Zarathustra."--Jacket.
