Agnes is an artist with a confused view of the world. She swings between powerlessness and megalomania. She is yearning and merciless, very well dressed and constantly seeking recognition, which she never gets enough of. She dreams about a normal type of love with another human being, but is drawn irresistibly to the sadistic and horrible. Sanger fra Merkur is an uncompromising, brutal novel written in an outstanding beautiful language.
'The narrative voice is given an almost manic, suggestive language, bringing us close to the first-person narrator’s desperate state of mind.'
