Comprised of three separate volumes,” The Village on Horseback creates an entirely original world of interrelated characters, with a mix of references, allusions, evocations-the result being a sort of Brueghel-esque feel-and yet there’s also a self-conscious acknowledgment of modernity as well as a questioning of the authority” of the author in determining meaning. At times evoking Gorey, Chaucer, and the tale of Robin Hood, these fables, ghost stories, and riddles of human nature dissect the individual’s interaction with culture,” particularly commenting on the ascribing of meaning by communal groups resulting in truth-making,” and the limitations of our leaders (artists, philosophers, politicians) in their ability to break us out of communal indoctrination.
