Summary/Abstract: By the interpretation of Péter Nádas's Minotaurus – which is one of the author's most important short stories – the essay conceives of the topography of the narrated world as a symbolic representation of human life and identity. In the story, the archetypes rooted in the Greek mythology, the Old Testament and the parables of Jesus bind saint with profane, subject with object, imagination with reality, liberty with determination, figurative to literal meanings, solipsism to realism--oppositions which consparables of etitute the choreography of narration.
