Nei racconti del Cuore avventuroso si intrecciano le due anime di Jünger: quella lucida e assorta del contemplatore e quella infiammata e penetrante del visionario. Dal suo sguardo, confinante spesso con l'allucinazione, sorgono visioni che si vorrebbe fossero soltanto sogni: fiabe crudeli in cui una giovane bionda è straziata da una sorella bruna; magici sobborghi di Berl ...more

Great stuff in here. His observation/theory of dual sense perception is great, especially tied into some of the sketches in here about flowers and things at the zoo. Some of the imagery is haunting, pale flesh cut into bright red, strange figures and rituals, beautiful flowers. Honestly amazing visual descriptions.

This was not an ideal place for me to begin with Jünger. Collections of short essays in a second language are always a challenge: you can miss a line or two of a novel and still be fine, but if there are only fifty lines or so total in a piece, each part is vital, and you have to go much slower. This is also a book from a difficult time in Jünger’s life to understand: having undermined the Weimar Republic through nationalist and frankly proto-fascist writings, he was now dodging and to some degr ...more

Космическое ощущение, когда в пределах трех дней ты читаешь очередной бестселлер про как писать хорошо и Эрнста Юнгера. 
Юнгер поразительный. Хочется сравнить его с кем-то (интонационно — Селин, по мудрости — Манн), с чьим-то чужим текстом, с чужой речью, чтобы хоть как-то расчистить ему местечко в знакомой и упорядоченной системе ценностей, но нет. 
Для того, чтобы писать хорошо, надо смотреть и видеть. Он видел все до мельчайшей детали, словно насквозь, словно с закрытыми глазами из реальности с

Die Fortsetzung. Keinen Deut weniger beeindruckend, sowohl inhaltlich als auch sprachlich.

One of the best. Nietzchian wonder of life and dark horror in some of the tales.

For fans of Jünger this book is a great treat. A collection of fantasy pieces, vignettes, and observations. It shows the French influence on his writing, the more fantasy oriented pieces recall Contes Cruels of Villiers de L'Isle-Adam. However, Jünger's style, that of the daring soldier and the cold scientist are also noticeable. Jünger the entomologist seems to put the smallest thing under his intellectual microscope, finding meaning in the colors of nature, the behaviors of animals, and the be ...more

really liked this book, despite not wanting to - disturbing to me how many rotten human beings I count among my favorite authors (Wallace Stevens, Heidegger, Faulkner, etc.)

The son of a successful businessman and chemist, Jünger rebelled against an affluent upbringing and sought adventure in the Wandervogel, before running away to briefly serve in the French Foreign Legion, an illegal act. Because he escaped prosecution in Germany due to his father's ef ...more

“Das Vergnügen einsamer Spaziergänge beruht gewiss auch darauf, dass man das Seine mit sich trägt. Unser Bewusstsein begleitet uns gleich einem Kugelspiegel, oder besser gleich einer Aura, deren Mittelpunkt wir sind. Die schönen Bilder dringen in diese Aura ein und erfahren in ihr eine atmosphärische Veränderung. So schreiten wir unter Zeichen wie unter Nordlichtern, Sonnenringen und Regenbögen dahin. Diese erlesene Vermählung und Zeugung mit der Welt gehört zu den höchsten Genüssen, die uns beschieden sind.” 1 likes
“Was ein südliches Meer an Geheimnissen birgt, ist für die an härtere Farben gewöhnten Augen des Norddeutschen von unerschöpflichem Reiz. Auch die Farben der Landtiere, etwa der Insekten, nehmen in heißeren Ländern an Reichtum und Mannigfaltigkeit zu; sie werden greller, metallischer, schärfer gegeneinander abgesetzt und herausfordernder. Aber nur das Meer gibt seinen Bewohnern jene spielende Eleganz und Weichheit der Töne, den irisierenden, bewegten Fluß seltener Gläser, die Harmonie der Übergänge, die wunderbare Zartheit und Innigkeit des Vergänglichen. Diese Farben sind traumhafter, sie gehören eher der Nacht als dem Tage an; sie bedürfen des dunkelblauen Abgrundes zum Schutz. Zuweilen klingen sie in ihren satten, violetten und dunkelroten Flecken, die sich in ein Fleisch brennen, das feinen weißen, rosa oder gelblichen Porzellanarten gleicht, an gewisse Orchideen, wie die Stanhopea, an; aber auch diese suchen ja die gleichmäßige, dunkelgrün dampfende Nacht der dichtesten Wälder auf. Es hat etwas Wunderbares, daß dieser magische Glanz gerade den feinsten, feuchtesten Strukturen des Lebens eigentümlich ist, und so bricht er denn auch aus dem kostbarsten und gefährdetsten Organ des menschlichen Körpers, aus dem Auge, hervor.

So ein Arbeitsraum, in dem das Leben in vielen Formen versammelt ist, drängt den Vergleich mit der Werkstatt eines Uhrmachers auf, in der große und kleine Zeiger über hundert bemalte Ziffernblätter gehen. Das Auge erblickt ein ungemein sinnreiches Werk, gleichviel auf welchem seiner Räder es ruht, ob auf dem Schirm der Meduse, der sich im Rhythmus des Atems öffnet und schließt, oder auf dem winzigen Bläschen im Leib eines einzelligen Tieres, das im Takt des Herzschlages pulsiert.

Jedes dieser Pendel, ob es nun lang ausholt oder kurz, schwingt in dem Punkte, der das Zentrum aller Zeiten ist.”
