Abstract

Written in the form of a fairy tale dialogue, presented like a novella, here an attempt is being made to reduce the gap between that which is being said and that which is being referred to itself. It aims to breathe life into the hypothesis of Agamben appearing as and through Benjamin’s Storyteller and Translator by presenting it in a state of becoming. The form is a nod to the spirit of the fairy tale in the work of both Agamben and Benjamin, and the dialogue to the importance of the oral tradition.
