Read full description of the books:Letters from Atlantis by Robert Silverberg is a concise narrative in the form of letters written between two mental time travelers visiting the Atlantean Empire some 18,000 years ago, during the last ice age.
Time researchers are sent back in time as a discorporeal entity and “possess” the mind of a current time person, allowing them to witness and experience the time from the perspective of a local time inhabitant. A brilliant concept and well played by the author.
This premise is then used as a vehicle to not only explore ideas about the mythical civilization but also to examine ideas about human nature and leadership.
Like other Silverberg works, this one involves the theme of shared psychological experiences and mental empathy. Another ubiquitous theme common to Silverberg's work is the accessibility of great expanses of time by the characters. Good book.
