A new stage in overcoming collective traumas: stop cooking, Cvirka!

Gasparas Aleksa. Baik circus, Cvirka! Novels. Vilnius: Lithuanian Writers’ Union Publishing House. 2021, 224 p.

These books are not linked by circus tricks, but by Gailienė’s discourse of Soviet-era psychological traumas studied by colleagues, into whose orbit the new image of Petras Cvirka would enter, showing how slowly our society is entering a new stage of overcoming collective traumas.

Alexa’s novel, in the title of which deliberately uses the words of Antanas Sniečkus dedicated to Cvirka, appeared in the context of the ongoing “memory wars”, which evokes the epic of Peter Cvirka’s monument , a posthumous memorial and even an immortal gift from the Soviet era – a memorial museum in Klangiai.
