A dangerous encounter by Ernst Jünger( Book )
58 editions published between 1985 and 2002 in 5 languages and held by 704 libraries worldwide
Toward the end of the nineteenth century, on a crisp autumn Sunday in Paris, a dreamy young man named Gerhard takes a solitary stroll. Handsome and well-bred, with a comfortable embassy job, he seems perfectly poised to continue his predictable ascent in society. Yet a fateful naivete and a mysterious timidity lie twined at the root of his soul, choking off his engagement with life and making him as vulnerable to its dangers as a sleepwalker. A chance encounter with Leon Duchase, a jaded and dyspeptic aesthete, draws Gerhard into a new orbit - the gamy underside of Paris, a vortex of eroticism, twisted passions, and crime. Duchase quickly maneuvers him into a liaison with an unstable married woman. As the would-be lovers sit hand in hand in a seedy hotel, Gerhard witnesses the stabbing murder of a young ballerina. Junger's trap is sprung: after luring us (like Gerhard himself) into the languorous world of decadent pleasure, he plunges the reader into a crackling detective novel, complete with an engagingly metaphysical investigator. The surprising twists of the plot are haunted at every turn by the presence of Jack the Ripper, whose crimes on the other side of the Channel have spread fear throughout the city. Nothing Junger writes is without allegorical overtones, and in A Dangerous Encounter he gives us, along with a novel of great narrative zest and acute psychological penetration, a portrait of a culture's loss of innocence as it stands at the brink of the twentieth century. That Junger can succeed so simply, yet so forcefully, and on so many levels at once, is a testament to a major modern artist working at the peak of his powers
Aladdin's problem by Ernst Jünger( Book )
28 editions published between 1983 and 1996 in 5 languages and held by 566 libraries worldwide
Friedrich Baroh, is beset by problems. Anarch, aspiring entrepreneur, and amateur historian of ideas, the aristocratic Baroh is also, unfortunately, a soldier in the East German army. His eventual defection to the West leads to a college degree, marriage, and a good job at his uncle's funeral parlor, but it can't dispel Baroh's other problem, a metaphysical one: each man is alone. Since, paradoxically, this is a predicament he shares with the rest of humanity, Baroh decides to capitalize on it. He embarks on a mind-boggling and macabre enterprise - the construction of Terrestra, an international, nondenominational necropolis situated in the wastelands of Turkey. Soon, secondary businesses are called for: airlines, travel agencies, anything to make Terrestra more accessible to anyone who can afford it. His scheme is so overwhelmingly successful that Baroh is forced to take on help, including the enigmatic Phares, whose unsettling presence and gnomic utterances may, at last, help Baroh to understand the depths of the problem he has set for himself. As mordantly ironic as Evelyn Waugh's The Loved One, Aladdin's Problem is a richly poetic meditation on the rituals of death. In its prismatic complexity, its philosophical depth, Junger's half-mythical, half-political tale becomes a caustic allegory of the conditions of modern life
Storm of steel by Ernst Jünger( Book )
112 editions published between 1929 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 565 libraries worldwide

37 editions published between 1977 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 564 libraries worldwide
A political novel set in a futuristic state, run by a tyrant and narrated by the tyrant's historian. The novel's originality lies in its willingness to question such generally accepted ideas as democracy and mass education. By a well-known German writer
Heliopolis : Rückblick auf eine Stadt by Ernst Jünger( Book )
74 editions published between 1949 and 2006 in 9 languages and held by 519 libraries worldwide
Cet étrange récit de 1949 présente une ville future oáu se tente l'expérience d'un empire mondial. C'est très "transcendantal" et, lorsque l'on connaît l'auteur, l'on appréhende de nobles et très dignes solutions qui risquent d'être d'une qualité telle qu'elles soient toutes irréalisables. Ce qui est bien utopique mais quand même très beau
Der Waldgang by Ernst Jünger( Book )
55 editions published between 1951 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 504 libraries worldwide
Ernst Jünger's The Forest Passage explores the possibility of resistance: how the independent thinker can withstand and oppose the power of the omnipresent state. No matter how extensive the technologies of surveillance become, the forest can shelter the rebel, and the rebel can strike back against tyranny. Jünger's manifesto is a defense of freedom against the pressure to conform to political manipulation and artificial consensus. A response to the European experience under Nazism, Fascism, and Communism, The Forest Passage has lessons equally relevant for today, wherever an imposed uniformity threatens to stifle liberty. -- from back cover
Der Arbeiter : Herrschaft und Gestalt by Ernst Jünger( Book )
43 editions published between 1932 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 483 libraries worldwide
Ernst Jüngers großer Essay über den Arbeiter wird hier in einer Einzelausgabe vorgelegt. "Der Plan des Buches", schrieb Jünger im Vorwort zur ersten Auflage, "besteht darin, die Gestalt des Arbeiters sichtbar zu machen jenseits der Theorien, jenseits der Parteiungen, jenseits der Vorurteile als eine wirkende Größe, die bereits mächtig in die Geschichte eingegriffen hat und die Formen einer veränderten Welt gebieterisch bestimmt." Jüngers Buch, das seit seinem Erscheinen im Jahr 1932 nichts von seiner herausfordernden Kraft verloren hat, sucht die neue Gestalt des technischen Menschen zu fassen und entwirft einen Massentypus, der, eingeschlossen in das totale System der Arbeit, ein neues Weltalter heraufführt

Sturm by Ernst Jünger( Book )
35 editions published between 1925 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 313 libraries worldwide
"Set in 1916 in the days before the Somme offensive, Ernst Jünger's Sturm provides a vivid portrait of the front-line experiences of four German infantry officers and their company. A highly cultivated man and an acute observer of his era, the eponymous Lieutenant Sturm entertains his friends during lulls in the action with readings from his literary sketches. The text's forays into philosophical and social commentary address many of the themes of Jünger's early work, such as the nature of war, death, heroism, the phenomenon of Rausch, and mass society"--

Drogen und Rausch sind für Jünger ein Mittel, dem Menschen einen Anteil an der geistigen Welt zu verschaffen. Zuerst ist der Rausch reiner Genuss mit Gewinn und Gefahren, dann wird er zum Abenteuer mit seinen fantastischen, ästhetischen und geistigen Bezirken, schließlich aber zur Annäherung. In zahlreichen Selbstversuchen u. a. mit Albert Hofmann, dem Erfinder des LSD, lotete Jünger die Dimensionen der Rauschmittel und ihren Bezug zu ihrem jeweiligen Kulturkreis aus
