Abstract: In this interpretive essay, an attempt is made to show how literature and art can reveal the most eclusive and mysterious aspects of history and politics.

The text rests on the working hypothesis that what we tend to describe as a secret and a mystery in literature and art is, in fact, a missing link between reality and its representations in our language and knowledge, or an imagined bridge between aesthetic imagination and our sociological or philosophical grasp of reality.[...]
