There’s hardly an author who fires salvos into the global political situation more eloquently than Austria's Protected content Nobel Prize winner Elfriede Jelinek. So it was only a matter of time before she would take on the topic of climate change and give us a good telling off. With due detachment, Jelinek examines man’s toils and troubles in his environment, lending her voice to the sun. In a brilliant monologue she sheds light on Greek mythology, on Wittgenstein – and on the beach. There, man lives on a coastal strip, a thin line between scorching embers and devouring tide. If the sun had its way, it would flare up and then disappear. But maybe, in the end, its warmth might dry a few tears and doom might stay away (for now).
