Waystations of the Deep Night
(1000 items available)
First published in France in the dark year of 1942, this story collection remains the best-known of Marcel Brion’s numerous novels and stories in the vein of the strange and the fantastic. A self-declared heir of Achim von Arnim and E.T.A. Hoffmann, Brion was also an admirer of the German Romantic writer Novalis, but his own imaginative homages to the night are more troublingly ambiguous, possibly an indirect reflection of the dark times in which they were written.
