Re: Hanns Heinz Ewers

Merry Christmas!

What better gift than to present a new Hanns Heinz Ewers story!

Here then is both the link to Fundvogel chapter 2 and the short story taken from this chapter. They are the same except chapter two has one section at the front of the chapter. The original book Fundvogel did not include the section on the Cat Organ so I've taken new material from the short story and added it to the main book chapter.

http://anarchistworld.com/hannsheinz.../chapter02.htm

This is one of my favorite things that I've translated so far! I love this book!

Re: Hanns Heinz Ewers

Here is the link to Vampire Chapter 2

Anarchist World - Hanns Heinz Ewers - Vampire

It's not surprising that Ewers got in trouble with the authorities! It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that even in this chapter he was getting in trouble with politically sensitive issues! Talk about putting a sign on your back that says "kick me!"

In chapter two he mentions political events in World War I before America got involved. We have German Americans buying tickets on neutral ships to go back to the Homeland and help fight the war. But these ships are not so neutral, they bring German Americans by the thousands to concentration camps in France and England! The German Americans were robbed of their money. Funny, I never read about that in my history books! He also talks about the German Workers Organization and attempting to get German American workers to go on strike!

Is it any wonder that they wanted to know what was in the rest of the book! Just my thoughts on this!

Re: Hanns Heinz Ewers

Just in case anyone is interested in a little more accurate translation of The Spider here is the link:

Anarchist World - Hanns Heinz Ewers - The Spider

I find the differences just as fascinating as the similarities. Hopefully my translation runs a bit smoother and makes a little more sense.

I am curious about any comments and feedback. I am considering new translations of previously translated material because many of the existing translations seem to lack a certain quality that I feel should be there.

Just my opinion

Re: Hanns Heinz Ewers

While this is not horror, it is Ewers, in fact most of Ewers stories are strange fiction rather than horror. The sampling of translations I've done so far show Ewers as much more than simply a horror writer. Hopefully I will have the essay Intoxication and Art done by tomorrow.

Here is the link to The Curve for those that enjoy satire with their music!

Re: Hanns Heinz Ewers

Well, it took a little longer than I thought it would but here is the essay Intoxication and Art.

Quite interesting considering it was written over one hundred years ago!

Gosh. Now I want to try henbane and absinthe at the same time... , , and !

G. S., I think you have identified two of the major ingredients of green Milk-Bones. Three wags of the eek indeed.

Re: Hanns Heinz Ewers

Anarchistbanjo, have you had the opportunity to translate a Ewers story about a man or a woman on a farm (I forget which) that chops off the arms and legs of the other and keeps the living torso in a chicken coup? I distinctly remember reading this story years ago. Just wondering if it was familiar to you.

No, I haven't read anything like that. Almost sounds like Stephen King LOL. I have only read the stories that I've translated or have already been translated. If it exists I will get to it sooner or later.

For those interested:
Here is the link to an essay I just wrote:
Hanns Heinz Ewers and the Nation of Culture

It's too long to post here. Just some thoughts I've put together on this subject. Should be food for discussion.
