Hardcover Î Der Genius Kindle ↠

Der Genius The hero of the tale the Maruis of Grosse finds himself embroiled in a secret revolutionary society which advocates murder and mayhem in pursuit of an early form of communism He creates a rival society to combat them and finds himself hopelessly trapped between the two antagonistic forces The book has been both praised and lambasted for its lurid portrayal of sex violence and barbarism H P Lovecraft in his lengthy essay Supernatural Horror in Literature dismissed it and others like it as the dreary plethora of trash like Maruis von Grosse's Horrid Mysteries About the only really gothic part of this book was the first line I awoke at length from that long swoon and found myself stretched out in a coffin Some of the receptacles of the wrecks of mortality stood near me and the odour of corruption was the first thing that affected my senses which I thought boded well for this story Alas it was not to be instead it turned out to be a rather boring tale of two counts a maruis and a baron and the few females they fall in love with while traveling around being happy or melancholy depending on their individual personalities It was most definitely not a very horrid book and there was no mystery at all Το μικρότερο από τα επτά Horrid Novels του Northanger Abbey οπότε το σχόλιο μου για αυτό θα είναι το μικρότερο Το βιβλίο είναι απλά κακό This is a weird one It begins with and undeath and ends with a murder and nothing much happens in between I am not even sure what happened at the end was Lewis just in love with whoever Carlos was? Was the servant trying to kill him the whole time? What was Lewis reading at the end? Nothing happened for so long and then just done the end
