Book Excerpt :

Longlisted for the Republic of Consciousness Prize 2019, a swift, biting novel from the late Croatian master, Dasa Drndic Two elderly people, Artur and Isabella, meet and have a passionate sexual encounter on New Year’s Eve. Details of the lives of Artur, a retired Yugoslav army captain, and Isabella, a Holocaust survivor, are revealed through police dossiers. As they fight loneliness and aging, they take comfort in small things: for Artur, a collection of 274 hats; for Isabella, a family of garden gnomes who live in her apartment. Later, we meet the ill-fated Pupi, who dreamed of becoming a sculptor but instead became a chemist and then a spy. As Eileen Battersby wrote, “As he stands, in the zoo, gazing at a pair of rhinos, in a city most likely present-day Belgrade, this battered Everyman feels very alone: ‘I would like to tell someone, anyone, I’d like to tell someone: I buried Mother today.’” Pupi sets out to correct his family’s crimes by returning silverware to its original Jewish owners through the help of an unlikely friend, a pawnbroker. Described by Dasa Drndic as “my ugly little book,” Doppelgänger was her personal favorite.

Book Short Summary:

Australian Arnold Rosen is celebrating his 70th birthday with his family aboard a cruise ship in the Mediterranean. By coincidence, on the same cruise ship, the American Gus Smith and his family are also celebrating his 70th. The two men meet. They are identical in appearance but clearly not related. Arnold is the son of Jewish Holocaust survivors, while Gus' parents were German - indeed, his father was a rabid anti-Semite. It seems they are doppelgangers, or 'doubles'. However, it may be more complicated than that. Not only were the two men born on the same day, it turns out that they were both born in the same small town, in post-war Germany. The two men's backgrounds are so different that despite their similarities, there is surely no possibility that they could be related... What will they uncover when they travel to Waiblingen, the small town in Germany where they were both born, to seek the truth?

Book Short Summary:

'Large temptations will emanate from these machine-animals, produced by people themselves, and it will be the task of a spiritual science that explores the cosmos to ensure all these temptations do not exert any damaging influence on human beings.' In an increasingly digitised world, where both work and play are more and more taking place online and via screens, Rudolf Steiner's dramatic statements from 1917 appear prophetic. Speaking of 'intelligent machines' that would appear in the future, Steiner presents a broad context that illustrates the multitude of challenges human beings will face. If humanity and the Earth are to continue to evolve together with the cosmos, and not be cut off from it entirely, we will need to work consciously and spiritually to create a counterweight to such phenomena. In the lectures gathered here, edited with commentary and notes by Andreas Neider, Rudolf Steiner addresses a topic that he was never to speak of again: the secret of the 'geographical' or the 'ahrimanic' doppelganger. The human nervous system houses an entity that does not belong to its constitution, he states. This is an ahrimanic being which enters the body shortly before birth and leaves at death, providing the basis for all electrical currents that are needed to process and coordinate sense perceptions and react to them.Based on his spiritual research, Rudolf Steiner discusses this doppelganger or 'double' in the wider context of historic occult events relating to 'spirits of darkness'. Specific brotherhoods seek to keep such knowledge to themselves in order to exert power and spread materialism. But this knowledge is critical, says Steiner, if the geographical doppelganger and its challenges are to be understood.

Book Short Summary:

"Transowy, mocny, znakomity debiut, w którym to, co pospolite, brudne, tandetne na naszych oczach przeobraża się w metafizyczne i fantastyczne. W szarym blokowisku Śląska czasów transformacji odradza się Macondo i zarazem Ulica Krokodyli. Zdegradowany świat podwórek i magicznych labiryntów klatek schodowych opisany jest ostro, sugestywnie – tak dobrze znanym autorce językiem blokowego kosmosu. Przez swoje bogactwo i wielość perspektyw powieść ta może być interpretowana na wiele sposobów. Tylko od nas zależy, który z nich wybierzemy. Doppelganger. Oko, które bacznie obserwuje hipnotyczną rzeczywistość. Ucho, które wsłuchuje się w pulsujący rytm miejskich legend. Ręka, która kreśli opowieść jak nikt przed nią."

Book Short Summary:

‘Genius is a rare commodity that few of us attain. I see the colour-magic painted by Van Gogh, hear the music-magic of Beethoven, imagine touching the exquisite bronze of Rodin’s Thinker. I revere their work but know that I can never create such beauty. So it is with Are’s psychic skills.’ – Phil Rogers, MRCVS, Dublin ‘Today we have forgotten all about demons and even about Christ. Both concepts have become anachronisms from olden times. That they are not anachronisms is illustrated in the discussions and examples given in this book.’ – Hans Kolstad, Dr.philos., MAS, Norway Are Thoresen perceives demons and other spiritual beings as clearly as we see each other. He sees the demons that cause disease as well as the beings associated with medicinal plants and other substances that can promote health. He has witnessed how demons of disease leave the bodies of the sick and enter the healthy, thus causing contagion. Through his therapeutic work, Thoresen has learned that one cannot simply ‘fight’ demons, as they will ‘translocate’ to other people or return later. The only effective way to counteract these malign entities is to dissolve them through the boundless love of the being of Christ. The author presents a lifetime’s knowledge – the fruit of more than half a century’s practical and clinical experience – in the pages of this book, offering a better understanding of health and disease. He recounts numerous personal experiences of demonic entities and explains how demons are created. Thoresen advises on the prevention of the demonic effects of natural and artificial radiation, and how we can defend and ultimately free ourselves from demonic influence. A fascinating Addendum describes the phenomenon of poltergeists and the spiritual beings related to various drugs. Demons and Healing is a singular work, written out of precise vision and knowledge of the spiritual entities that surround us in everyday life.

Book Short Summary:

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Other, grade: 1,0, University of Koblenz-Landau, language: English, abstract: Table of Contents 1)Introduction 2)Dr. Jekyll vs. Mr. Hyde 3)Dr. Jekyll ́s motivation 4)Analysis of the relationship between Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde 5)Conclusion Bibliography 1) Introduction (Extract) In the 19th century published cases of both dual and multiple personalities were accumulated, for instance that of Mary Reynolds, who could have been a model for Robert Louis Stevenson ́s The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. In parallel to these publications a new interest in supernaturalism, excitement and drama developed. Gothicism as well as duality are themes which Stevenson had long been trying to write about and emerge in lots of his other writings, such as Olalla, The Body Snatcher and The Dynamiter. But the psychic conflict of doubles found its most “explicit treatment” in The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1886), which also “endures as a landmark in the evolution of psychological fiction”. Even the names of ́Jekyll ́ and his alternating personality ́Hyde ́ have become a kind of allegory for “any homicidal wolf in sheep ́s clothing”, not only for those who have read their story but also for those who have not. ...

Book Short Summary:

For millennia people have held folk beliefs about the existence of the doppelganger--"double walker" in German--a look-alike second self that is often the antithesis of one's identity and is usually considered an omen of misfortune or death. The theme of the double has inspired works by E.T.A. Hoffmann, Poe, de Maupassant, Dostoevsky and others, and has been the basis for many classic mystery, horror and science fiction movies. This critical survey examines the double in more than 100 films by such acclaimed directors as Alfred Hitchcock, Mario Bava, Roger Corman, David Cronenberg, George Romero, Fritz Lang, James Cameron, Robert Siodmak, Don Siegel, John Frankenheimer, Terry Gilliam, Brian De Palma and Roman Polanski.

Book Short Summary:

The notion of a person--or even an object--having a "double" has been explored in the visual arts for ages, and in myriad ways: portraying the body and its soul, a woman gazing at her reflection in a pool, or a man overwhelmed by his own shadow. In this edited collection focusing on nineteenth- and twentieth-century western art, scholars analyze doppelgangers, alter egos, mirror images, double portraits and other pairings, human and otherwise, appearing in a large variety of artistic media. Artists whose works are discussed at length include Richard Dadd, Salvador Dali, Egon Schiele, Frida Kahlo, the creators of Superman, and Nicola Costantino, among many others.

Book Short Summary:

A figure from ancient folklore, the doppelganger—in fiction a character's sinister look-alike—continues to appear in literature, television and film. The modern-day version (of the Doppelganger, or “double-goer” in German) is typically depicted in a form adapted to reflect present-day social anxieties. Focusing on a broad range of narratives, the author explores 21st century representations in novels (such as Audrey Niffenegger’s Her Fearful Symmetry, José Saramago’s The Double), television shows (Orphan Black, Battlestar Galactica, Ringer) and movies (The Island, The Prestige, Oblivion).

  • Pdf File: text-body-and-indeterminacy.pdf

Book Short Summary:

The nature of the self is an important point at which philosophy and literature intersect. Text, Body and Indeterminacy acknowledges this connection by forging a link between the philosophical concept of the self and the category of the literary character. The philosophical horizon of Text, Body and Indeterminacy is delineated by the neo-pragmatist debate on selfhood. The book entwines the ideas of Richard Rorty and Richard Shusterman by stressing similarity in their aestheticizing of ethics and by showing the difference in their understanding of the self as textual or bodily. The characters created by Pater and Wilde are freshly assessed within this dual philosophical perspective. Their doppelgängers are seen as the forerunners of postmodernist concepts: the cerebral flâneur is reflected in Rorty’s model “ironist,” and the sensuous aesthete returns through Shusterman’s notion of the somatic self. Text, Body and Indeterminacy establishes how Pater renders his protagonists through discursive patterns—tropes of Decadence, philosophical theorems, and myths—only to subvert these vocabularies and to emphasize the reality of the body, the extra-textual dimension of the self. It also shows how Wilde’s sensuous personae, both bodily and indeterminate, transcend the vocabularies available to the Wildean flâneurs. Through its interpretations, Text Body and Indeterminacy uniquely combines literary portraits by Pater and Wilde, highlights interlocking themes and, in every reading, points to the ethical gains of tilting the idea of selfhood into the somatic realm.

Book Short Summary:

Considered by turns part-gothic novel, part-psychological mystery, part-metafiction, part-satire, part-case study of totalitarian thought, it can also be thought of as an early example of modern crime fiction in which the story is told, for the most part, from the point of view of its criminal anti-hero. The action of the novel is located in a historically definable Scotland with accurately observed settings, and simultaneously implies a pseudo-Christian world of angels, devils, and demonic possession. The narrative is set against the antinomian societal structure flourishing in the borders of Scotland in Hogg's day.

Book Short Summary:

“A remarkable tour de force” by the acclaimed author and philosopher—a classic science fiction “thriller with depth” for fans of 1984 and Brave New World (The New York Times). After the psychological revolution opened humankind’s minds to an all-new form of consciousness, society split in two. On the Earth’s surface rules Alpha, the benevolent, all-powerful dictator who’s constant ministrations have left his subjects undeniably happy and satisfied but also obedient and unquestioning. Below the surface lies the kingdom of the Mole—the gloomy domain of an even darker and crueler leader. Embittered by his lot underground, he leads his people on a revolt against their obsequious overhead counterparts. And their ultimate weapon is nearly ready—a man who has been genetically and psychologically molded to be a near-perfect double of the Alpha. A covert agent who, once in place, could change the fate of both civilizations—and humanity itself—forever. Both a brilliant examination of human identity, and a gripping science fiction narrative, Doppelgangers is a dystopian novel decades ahead of its time.

Book Short Summary:

"Nachdem dieser John von Rechtes wegen seine Strafe abgebüßt hatte, wurde er, wie gebräuchlich, der lieben Mitwelt zur Hetzjagd überlassen. Und sie hat ihn nun auch zu Tode gehetzt; denn sie ist ohn Erbarmen." Theodor Storms Novelle "Ein Doppelgänger" schildert das Schicksal eines aus der Strafhaft Entlassenen, der vergeblich versucht, sich wieder in die Gesellschaft zu integrieren. Die mit dichterischer Einfühlung geschriebene Novelle profitiert vom beruflichen Hintergrund des Dichters (er war Advokat und Richter). Die Kommentare von Thomas Vormbaum und Walter Zimorski behandeln die einzelnen Aspekte der Erzählung aus juristischer und literaturwissenschaftlicher Sicht.

Book Short Summary:

Die junge Anwältin Pina tut sich mit dem ebenfalls noch unerfahrenen Detektiv Felix Siebenschön zusammen, den sie zufällig kennenlernt. Bevor sie es richtig begreifen, haben sie drei Aufträge, von denen es jeder in sich hat. Am kompliziertesten scheint der von Filip Mazur zu sein, dem Mann, der einem Tankstellenräuber zum Verwechseln ähnlich sieht – und in den Antonia Laurins Praxispartnerin Maxi Böhler sich verliebt hat. Aber auch zwischen Pina und Felix knistert es, obwohl sie ja eigentlich nur zusammenarbeiten wollen. Antonia Laurin war an diesem Morgen die Letzte, die das Haus verließ. Sie stand in der Küche und sah sich lächelnd um. Die Kinder hatten sich wirklich selbst übertroffen! Die Küche war über und über mit Bildern, Willkommensgrüßen, Blumengirlanden und Liebeserklärungen dekoriert. Selbst die sechzehnjährigen Zwillinge Kaja und Konstantin, die sich normalerweise viel zu erwachsen für solchen ›Kinderkram‹ fühlten, hatten begeistert mitgemacht. »Endlich bist du wieder da!«, stand unter einem Bild, das eine strahlende sechsköpfige Familie zeigte. Sie war sicher, dass Kyra, ihre Jüngste, es gemalt hatte. Auf einem anderen Blatt stand: »Das wurde aber auch Zeit, Simon!« Das konnte nur Kevin, ihr Dreizehnjähriger geschrieben haben. Überall fanden sich solche und ähnliche Sprüche, die die Erleichterung darüber ausdrückten, dass Simon Daume an diesem Tag zu ihnen zurückkehrte. Kaja hatte bunte Girlanden gebastelt und in der ganzen Küche aufgehängt, Konstantin hatte Fotos gemacht: Chaos in den Kinderzimmern, ein unaufgeräumtes Wohnzimmer mit Staubflusen in den Ecken, eine Küche, die aussah, als hätte der Blitz eingeschlagen, ein Garten, in dem das Unkraut andere Pflanzen überwucherte. Er hatte aber auch kleine Szenen mit seinen Geschwistern gestellt, die allesamt ausdrückten, wie verzweifelt sie ohne ihren ›Haushaltsmanager‹ gewesen waren: Kaja vor ihrem leeren Kleiderschrank, weil sie nicht daran gedacht hatte, rechtzeitig zu waschen. Kyra, die vereinsamt in der Küche vor einem leeren Glas saß – normalerweise kam sie als Erste aus der Schule und bekam von Simon einen frisch gepressten Saft hingestellt. Kevin ausgehungert vor dem leeren Kühlschrank – niemand hatte eingekauft. Er hatte auch seine Eltern Antonia und Leon eingespannt für seine kleine Fotoserie. Kaja hatte sie beide mit allerlei Hilfsmitteln künstlich altern lassen, ihnen Falten geschminkt und weißen Puder in die Haare gearbeitet, sie hatten zerschlissene Kleidung anziehen – wo war die eigentlich hergekommen? – und grämlich dreinblicken müssen. Das Bild hatte Konstantin mit dem Kommentar versehen: »Unsere Eltern sind vor Kummer über deine Abwesenheit stark gealtert und halten sich nur noch mühsam auf den Beinen.« Tatsächlich waren sie in der Zeit ohne Simon besser zurechtgekommen als befürchtet, aber eins stimmte: Sie hatten ihn an jedem einzelnen Tag schrecklich vermisst, und es war eine starke Untertreibung, wenn sie sagten, dass sie sich über seine Rückkehr freuten.

Book Short Summary:

Essay from the year 2006 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1, University of Bath (Department of European Studies and Modern Languages), course: 19th Century British Literature, language: English, abstract: Walking through the streets of nowadays’ Prague, I became acquainted with an example of the very vivid traditions and legends of the Jewish population during the medieval times. My tourist guide took me to see the Jewish cemetery and the Jewish alley, which back then was a part of the Ghetto in Prague. “You know, the Jews in Prague suffered from a lot of accusations which had to do with their way of living, and which had their roots in the traditional behavior of the Christian central European society,” my guide told me. “That’s why, one day, a rabbi created a creature to help the Jews against those incriminations, the Golem.” According to my guide, the rabbi – much like God – formed the Golem out of clay; a creature that looked like a human but was not able to speak, only to take orders and fulfilled them. When the Golem was not needed anymore – and because it caused some troubles that seemed to scare people – the rabbi took away life from his creation and the Golem returned to be the clay he had been before. My guide showed me the little lot of clay in the synagogue that is believed to be the rests of the Golem. Later I became aware of the many adaptations this story had in literature and film. Often the image of the Golem was rendered into a vicious creature that cannot be controlled by his inventor anymore, causing death and illnesses where ever he appears. In this sense the story of the Golem has many parallels with Frankenstein’s creation: the Monster1.

Book Short Summary:

Seminar paper from the year 2012 in the subject Didactics - English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,0, University of Duisburg-Essen (Anglistik), language: English, abstract: Poe was a writer of gothic novels and the influences of it can be seen in William Wilson. There are of course many different ways to interpret this story but this term paper focuses on the idea that Wilson’s double functions as his own conscience as well as society’s conscience. In order to have a better understanding of this concept, Freud’s psychoanalysis will be used as a foundation to this analysis. The second chapter focuses on Oscar Wild’s The Picture of Dorian Gray. In this novel, the double takes on a completely different shape but symbolises the same inner conflict. This novel was written in a time, when the motif of the double was already in decline and it will be interesting to see in how far these two stories differ. In order to compare the novel to Poe’s short story the focus will be similar to William Wilson in so far as the role of the double will be analysed. Does Dorian Gray’s portrait act as a conscience as well? Here again Freud’s psychoanalysis as well as his essay the Uncanny will be regarded as a source. The Picture of Dorian Gray can be analysed in many different ways. There is the topic of Art and aestheticism as well as a “cult of the senses”. It is, however, the topic of the double, realised through a portrait of the Self, which is the focus of this term paper. Other topics will only be discussed in connection to the main focus.

Book Short Summary:

Financial Times Book of the Year An urgent new novel about death, war, and memory from the highly acclaimed Croatian writer In this breathtaking final work, Daša Drndic reaches new heights. Andreas Ban’s suicide attempt has failed. Though very ill, he still finds the will to tap on the glass of history to summon those imprisoned within. Mercilessly, he dissects society and his environment, shunning all favors as he goes after the evils and hidden secrets of our times. History remembers the names of the perpetrators, not the victims—Ban remembers and honors the lost. He travels from Rijeka to Zagreb, from Belgrade to Tirana, from Parisian avenues to Italian castles. Ghosts follow him wherever he goes: chess grandmasters who disappeared during WWII; the lost inhabitants of Latvia; war criminals who found work in the CIA and died peacefully in their beds. Ban’s family is with him too, those already dead and those with one foot in the grave. As if left with only a few pieces in a chess game, Andreas Ban—and Daša Drndic—play a stunning last match against Death.

Book Short Summary:

*Winner of the 2017 Scotiabank Giller Prize* A darkly comic literary thriller about a woman who fears for her sanity—and then her life—when she learns that her doppelganger has appeared in a local park. Jean Mason has a doppelganger. She's never seen her, but others swear they have. Apparently, her identical twin hangs out in Kensington Market, where she sometimes buys churros and drags an empty shopping cart down the streets, like she's looking for something to put in it. Jean's a grown woman with a husband and two kids, as well as a thriving bookstore in downtown Toronto, and she doesn't rattle easily—not like she used to. But after two customers insist they've seen her double, Jean decides to investigate. She begins at the crossroads of Kensington Market: a city park called Bellevue Square. Although she sees no one who looks like her, it only takes a few visits to the park for her to become obsessed with the possibility of encountering her twin in the flesh. With the aid of a small army of locals who hang around in the park, she expands her surveillance, making it known she'll pay for information or sightings. A peculiar collection of drug addicts, scam artists, philanthropists, philosophers and vagrants—the regulars of Bellevue Square—are eager to contribute to Jean's investigation. But when some of them start disappearing, she fears her alleged double has a sinister agenda. Unless Jean stops her, she and everyone she cares about will face a fate much stranger than death.
