Synopsis

In many of his stories Ezerioo was an initiator in the portrayal of the "fine neurosis". He was one of the first writers of Latvian prose to dispute the single - dimensional (e.g., good/evil) portrayal of a human being. The people in Ezerioo' prose are individuals with their own unique characteristics, often ambivalent, and subject to change in time and situations. As is common in modern literature, Ezerioo often blurs the boundaries between reality and fantasy, frequently making his reader laugh about the serious while aching when reading the humorous. Ezerioo' best work was created in the genre of the short story. Among his literary models were Boccaccio, Maupassant and Poe. During his active literary working life, which lasted the short space of approximately 5 to 6 years of a short life, Ezerioo seemingly grasped an encyclopaedia of possibilities and subject matter, as well as the versatility of storytelling, not avoiding either classical subjects or the repetition of characters so traditional in short stories.
