Moravagine PDF/EPUB ✓ Paperback

At once truly appalling and appallingly funny Blaise Cendrars's Moravagine bears comparison with Naked Lunch—except that it's a lot entertaining to read Heir to an immense aristocratic fortune mental and physical mutant Moravagine is a monster a man in pursuit of a theorem that will justify his every desire Released from a hospital for the criminally insane by his starstruck psychiatrist the narrator of the book who foresees a companionship in crime that will also be an unprecedented scientific collaboration Moravagine travels from Moscow to San Antonio to deepest ia engaged in schemes and scams as among other things terrorist speculator gold prospector and pilot He also enjoys a busy sideline in rape and murder At last the two friends return to Europe—just in time for World War I when the whole world was doing a MoravagineThis new edition of Cendrars's underground classic is the first in English to include the author's afterword How I Wrote Moravagine

    In the beginning was the rhythm and only eventually the rhythm gained corporealityBlaise Cendrars boldly bases his novel on the concept of Alfred Jarry’s pataphysicsHysteria Freud had taken up the problem had gone into it amply profoundly had lifted it extracted it from its purely experimental and clinical domain to make of it a kind of pataphysics of social religious and artistic pathologyBlaise Cendrars doesn’t write he literally crochets a morbidly pathological lace of maleficent wordsDiseases are We do not make or unmake them at will We are not their masters They make us they form us They may even have created us They belong to that state of activity which we call life They may be its main activityMoravagine is a quintessence of villainy he is an incarnation of mental pathology he becomes a metaphor of evil Evil is indestructible and sinister pataphysics reignsAnd what about metaphysics? “Metaphysics should be placed in the museum of folklore” Reductio ad absurdum is a part of human nature
