THE DEEP ONES: "Die Spinne" by Hanns Heinz Ewers, The Weird Tradition (heinäkuu 2013)


Description from the publisher:

Kokain - The Modern Revue was a magazine produced in Vienna and ran for five issues during 1925. Original copies are so rare that it scarcely appears in any of the literature relating to the Weimar period and its contents have remained almost entirely ignored and certainly untranslated. Until now.

Each 80pp magazine is printed in full colour in a similar format and layout to the original editions, bound in sewn sections as a paperback with french flap covers. All five issues are housed in a handsome slipcase.

Ably translated by Joe E. Bandel, Kokain includes works by such well-known names as Hanns Heinz Ewers (1871-1943) (including two hitherto unrecognised pieces contributed under pseudonyms), Karl Hans Strobl (1877-1946) author and editor of Der Orchideengarten- the worlds first fantasy magazine, the Russian expressionist Leonid Andreyev (1871–1919), Paul Leppin (1878-1945) ‘the German-Bohemian Baudelaire’ and Joseph Roth (1894-1939) author of The Radetzky March. Among its other contents are various tales by now largely forgotten authors some of which included scenes of sex and violence (such as an anonymously authored lesbian spy serial) that pushed at the boundaries of decency and ultimately resulted in prosecutions and bans. These legal issues, and acrimony between the journals publisher Fritz Bauer and its artistic editor Stefan Eggeler resulted in the journals collapse within tenth months of its debut issue.

Originally, the fourth issue of Kokain was a re-issue of the third which had been prosecuted for both its written and artistic content but rather than reprint that issue twice, it has instead been devoted to Kokains artistic director Stefan Eggeler (1895-1970).

L'opera era strutturata in quattro racconti, intrecciati tra loro, nei quali lo studente protagonista (interpretato da Flavio Bucci) si trova implicato sia come semplice spettatore che come vittima. (fonte: Wikipedia)

Sort of a Decadent version of the Frankenstein story. Somewhat ignored or even despised because of Ewers Nazi affiliation (the Nazi's later proscribed it).

Where Frankenstein's monster is a thing of ugliness Alraune is a thing of delicate beauty but who because of her Genesis ends up as sort of the ultimate femme fatale. She's the product of a hanged murderer's seed at the crossroads and a prostitute. It all has to do with folklore surrounding mandrake roots, something that crops up in other fairytales and folklore.

In a sense she doesn't deserve her reputation, it's kind of her fate, but she is still largely a negative/evil character that Ewers manages to effectively bathe in tragic sympathy. Her decadence as an adult actually merely reflects the pernicious nature of those around her; she's like a mirror for everyone else's sins. As a child she is simply a demon, but a somewhat helpless one. She never does anything per se but most people feel eerily compelled to do what she "suggests" with the same results. She's just bad news if she doesn't take a liking to you, and sometimes even if she does.

Her torrid love affair with her "cousin" Frank Braun, who actually came up with the "idea" of Alraune, is the climax of the narrative and their more than passionate love/hate relationship sets the stage for the endgame. She unwittingly becomes literally the blood sucking vampire of her nature even as she sleepwalks to her own fate.

Pretty good stuff. I really got into it and couldn't put it down eventually. Ewers was, on top of everything else, trying to be shocking for his time, there is nudity, fornication (although tame by today's standards), incest, necrophilia, murder, and all other sorts of Decadent fun. It comes off as pretty tame today, but in context would have been quite nasty. A brown paper wrapper sort of thing.

This edition has some fantastic historical illustrations that add nicely to that fin de siecle feel.
