What starts out as a straight tale and yes there s an in story storyteller telling us that they re telling us a tale of a bunch of knights in one of Charlemagne s campaigns against the muslims gets thrown off its track when it turns out that one of the knights the wisest fairest chastest most analytically minded of them all doesn t actually exist he s just an empty suit of armour held together by the idea of his own existence So Charlemagne in his wisdom gives him a Sancho Panza style suire in the shape of a madman who exists but isn t aware of it expecting them to get on well with each other And off we goAs with most of Calvino s books it s hard to describe it without killing what makes it come alive We have a group of characters who are really just philosophical concepts dressed up as knights and taken so far to their respective extremes that they barely work blundering through the plots of Candide and Monty Python s Holy Grail trying to work out whether they exist or not And since they re philosophical concepts it gets meta as fuck but it never gets annoyingly preciously so partly because at just over 100 pages it never has time to but also because he knows how to riff on tales we ve heard before and does so far better than in Castle of Crossed Destinies IMO And somehow after all these high concept modernist ideas fighting each other he comes out with a rather beautiful ending in praise of the possibilities of fiction of everything that doesn t exist But now o future I m in the saddle and riding your horse What new flags do you raise at me from the towers in a city yet to be founded What fires will you let ravage the castles and gardens I ve loved What unforeseen golden ages do you have lined up for me you unbending you bearer of treasures to be dearly paid for you my country to be conuered you future

Calvino whimsy and wizardry compressed into less than 150 pages Published in 1959 The Nonexistent Knight completes Our Ancestors the Italian maestro s heraldic trilogy consisting also of The Cloven Viscount 1952 and The Baron in the Trees 1957 Beguiling enchanting uizzical if retold in twenty pages as a Brothers Grim style fairy tale The Nonexistent Knight could instantly become a classic for all ages Actually in somewhat similar spirit there s a charming Pino Zac animated film based on the novella The literary magic on display in The Nonexistent Knight is nothing short of breathtaking We are in the time of Charlemagne during the war with the Turks and the central figure in the tale is a knight in shinning white armor by the name of Agilulf But let me add uickly nobody is inside the white armor hence the book s title In the opening chapter when passing inspection on leaders of his army Emperor Charlemagne exclaims This is too much We ve even got a knight who doesn t existAs one can very well imagine being nonexistent does present its challenges Agilulf thinks and acts in a number of curious ways leaving a reader to ponder the philosophical implications of the paradoxes of existence or er nonexistence or oh my goodness thinking about Agilulf in solely conceptual terms can uickly make one dizzy No doubt about it Agilulf is one knotty knight But unknot we must so let s shift to three specific conundrums surrounding our white plated championPythagorean Paladin Agilulf is faced with an ongoing dilemma unless he keeps himself continually pitted against the challenges posed by the surrounding world he might dissolve into nothingness Thus when not preoccupied by his knightly duties he applies himself to some precise exercise counting objects arranging them in geometric patterns resolving problems of arithmetic In this respect it appears Agilulf isn t that much different than many men or women of action an inability to let go of constantly calculating or analyzing the frantic need to keep oneself busy busy busy Armor I Am For in times when armor was necessary even for a man who existed how much was it for one who didn t Agilulf is one with his armor no armor no Agilulf Throughout his tale Italo Calvino has us reflect on what is lost when an individual s identity is completely bound up with their social role and subsumed by their function within society To Sleep No More When asked how he can keep awake at all times Agilulf replies I would feel bewildered if I dozed off for even a second In fact I d never come round at all but would be lost forever So I keep wide awake every second of the day and night That is different No sleep for Agilulf We humans thrive on sleep especially the restful state of deep dreamless sleep Our brains reuire sleep thus in a twenty four hour cycle we don t mind surrendering our sense of self identity to the selfless state of sleep In his current condition of nonexistence even if for one instant Agilulf surrenders to the selfless state of sleep Agilulf risks losing whatever nonexistent existence he has Poor knight Keep on arranging your pine cones into triangles Agilulf we wouldn t want to lose you Alas we are not reading a philosophic treatise in the field of ontology or metaphysics but a tale of the fantastic written by none other than Italo Calvino Thus we can move along and meet several other characters making their appearance in the story Raimbaut A youth wishing to join the ranks of Charlemagne s paladins to avenge the death of his father slain by the head of the Turks Little does this young man know where his adventures will take him Hint many the time his path crosses that of the knight in shinning white armor Gurduloo One of the names of this rambunctious chap who exists but has no sense of self the exact opposite of Agilulf the knight who doesn t exist but has an extremely strong sense of self We first meet Gurduloo waddling along a duck among ducks in his earthen color rags As we come to learn Gurduloo is but one name for this foolish fellow who takes the temporary identity of whatever he s around In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition Gurduloo might be judged as possessing crazy wisdom but in Medieval Europe he s considered just plain crazy But then again not so fast we have the paradox of the wise fool Any guesses as to who gets to be Agilulf s suireBrandamante Bold courage accomplished knight who just so happens to be a woman This female warrior is none too pleased with all the regular knights she thinks are nothing but a bunch of louts nincompoops and slobs But there is that one knight who alone knows the secret geometry the order the rule by which to bestow sense to her every action nay to her very life itself Agilulf to the rescue Well maybe The Tale s Narrator Book evening is here and I have begun to write rapidly Even now and again I notice my pen beginning to hurry over the paper as if by itself with my hurrying along after it So writes Sister Theodora a nun living in her convent The interplay of knightly action and the act of writing gives The Nonexistent Knight a touch of the metafictional a small preview of what Italo Calvino would develop in his famous 1979 novel alternating story with the act of reading a book Torrismund Sophronia Palmyra Three players whose ultimate identity I will leave to each reader to discover Knights of the Grail Although not uite as off kilter as the Pythons film of King Arthur and the Holy Grail The Nonexistent Knight does have its moments Perhaps the conseuence of the author playing with themes from Ariosto s Orlando Furioso and other classics of medieval epic literature One can almost not believe how Italo Calvino has those idealized champions behave To discover what is meant here and all else that s completely different you will have to read The Nonexistent Knight for yourselfCoda Italo Calvino chose the above Picasso drawing to illustrate the cover for the first
