Mynheer Peeperkorn

magicm15Excerpt from my Real-Time Review HERE:

Here we discover that Peeperkorn has now become — as seen through Hans’ growingly mature eyes (we have seen our hero thus develop during the course of this mighty book) — indeed discover that Peeperkorn has now become a catalyst out of paradox or out of pure constructive madness or just from that sheer larger-than-life personality, a catalyst enough to win arguments! – as his chemistry with the religio-philosophical gallimaufry of Settembrini and Naphta outweighs their otherwise higher intellect. Amazing stuff!
I may not be like Peeperkorn in real life as a person, but my real-time reviews perhaps are just another form of such Peeperkornisms! Or at least I hope so.
But what of the golden eagle, I ask?

“I have no contact with the flat-land, it has fallen away.”
