Eros i seks u Dnevniku o Čarnojeviću
Eros and Sexuality in the Diary of Carnojevic
Languages of publication
The narrator of The Diary of Carnojevic is related to Don Juan, although he identifies himself as Casanova. His intercourses are just ameans of avoiding apathy and demonstrating his masculinity: he does not comprehend the woman’s soul, because he is not empathically involved, and he is uninspired (he is deprived of Eros) and repeatedly confirms his a priori negative attitude towards women. Living archetype of Eros-playboy, the hero only mirrors himself in all those women. By analysing his love choices, dream and ironic of women’s character, we reveal ambiguity of narrator’sarchetype of Anima (Eva/Virgin Mary), but also his fear of women, which is generated from his relationship with his mother (uncompleted separation from the mother is the main reason why the hero cannot have heavenly Aphrodite/Sophia). However, the dream motivates the hero to transcend himself by becoming an Eros-creator by means of panaesthetics.
