Gustav Meyrink - Walpurgisnacht

SKU 0929497716
"Comic and fantastic, gruesome and grotesque, Walpurgisnacht uses Prague as the setting for a clash between German officialdom immured in the ancient castle above the Moldau, and a Czech revolution seething in the city below. History, myth and political reality merge in an apocalyptic climax as the rebels storm the castle to crown a poor violinist ""Emperor of the World"" in St. Vitus' Cathedral.

Written in 1917 Walpurgisnacht continues the message of The Green Face, of a decadent society on the brink of collapse and of a Europe past salvation. In it we see Meyrink's exceptional narrative powers at their height. "
