"A complex and ambitious novel which centres on the life of the Elizabethan magus John Dee, in England, Poland and Prague, as it intertwines past and present, dreams and visions, myth and reality in a world of the occult, culminating in the transmutation of physical reality into a higher spiritual existence."

The quest for the Wandering Jew in a fin-de-siecle Amsterdam. "Of the volumes available to the English public, The Green Face, first published in 1916, is the most enjoyable. In an Amsterdam that very much resembles the Prague of The Golem, a stranger, Hauberisser, enters by chance a magician's shop. The name on the shop, he believes, is Chidher Green; inside, among several strange customers, he hears an old man, who says his name is Green, explain that, like the Wandering Jew, he has been on earth 'ever since the moon has been circling the heaven.' When Hauberisser catches sight of the old ma

Das deutschen Spießers Wunderhorn [Gustav Meyrink: Gesammelte Werke]; [2]; Novellen by Gustav Meyrink( Book )

55 editions published between 1913 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mit beißender Ironie widmet sich Gustav Meyrink in der Novellensammlung "Des deutschen Spießers Wunderhorn" den Auswüchsen der Gesellschaft seiner Zeit. Seine Kritik an unterschiedlichsten sozialen Schichten macht deutlich, dass sich seine Genialität nicht nur im Genre des Phantastischen und des Übersinnlichen bewegt. Zwar trifft der Leser auch im "Wunderhorn" auf beide Elemente, die Meyrink späterhin am meisten ausmachen, doch soll er hier weniger den Schatten und den Nebel fremder Realitäten fürchten und erleben, sondern vielmehr die Absurditäten des Menschseins. Wie bereits im "Golem", dem ersten Band unserer kommentierten Meyrink-Ausgabe, ist auch in "Des deutschen Spießers Wunderhorn" häufig die Stadt Prag Schauplatz des oft absurden, hin und wieder unheimlich-übersinnlich anmutenden Geschehens seiner aus Parodien, Satiren und Kurzgeschichten bestehenden Novellensammlung. Meyrink zeigt sich hier deutlich lebensnah und doch gleichzeitig über der Lebenswelt schwebend, deren dunkle Ecken und Nischen aufdeckend und verlachend, während die eine Hand doch mahnend den Zeigefinger hebt. Denn der Spießer jeglicher sozialer Schichten betrügt sich selbst, indem er mehr den Schein als das Sein lebt, was auf Dauer nicht gut gehen kann
Walpurgisnacht : phantastischer Roman by Gustav Meyrink( Book )

42 editions published between 1917 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schauplatz des spannenden Romans ist - wie im "Golem"--Die alte Kaiserstadt Prag. Es herrscht Chaos, unheimliche Dinge geschehen. Es sind schwere Zeiten für die Liebe zwischen dem Geiger Ottokar und der Adeligen Polyxena, deren Schicksal sich in einer turbulenten Walpurgisnacht erfüllt. Auch wenn Meyrink nicht mit einem Happy End aufwartet - seine originelle Mischung realer und okkulter Welten mit vielen grotesk-komischen Situationen und witzigen Figuren ist einmal mehr bestechend. Gustav Meyrink (eigtl. Meyer) wurde am 19. Januar 1868 in Wien geboren. Nach der Tätigkeit als Bankier in Prag 1889-1902 lebte er ab 1905 als freier Schriftsteller in München. Meyrink gilt mit seinen bekannten Romanen "Der Golem", "Das grüne Gesicht" und "Der weisse Dominikaner" als Klassiker der phantastischen Literatur. In sein Werk gingen mystische und kabbalistische Elemente ein, er selbst konvertierte 1927 zum Mahanja-Buddhismus. Er starb 1932 in Starnberg

3 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The White Dominican is Meyrink's most esoteric novel, and draws on the wisdom of a number of mystical traditions, the most important of which is Tao. It is set in a mystical version of the Bavarian town of Wasserburg, which sits on a promontory surrounded on three sides by the River Inn." "The novel describes the spiritual journey of the simple hero, who, guided by a number of figures, (his eccentric father, the spirit of a distant ancestor, the protecting presence of his dead lover and the mysterious figure of the White Dominican), escapes the 'Medusa's head' of the world to a transfiguration, through which he joins the 'living chain that stretches to infinity.'" --Book Jacket
