Adrian Leverkühn’s ‘Apocalypse’


All the quotations from my still on-going first reading of ‘Doctor Faustus’ by Thomas Mann HERE

I quote in particular the substantial whole of “CHAPTER XXXIV (Conclusion)” here: Adrian Leverkühn | The Book of Classical Music Themed Horror Stories representing for me the essence of Horror or Weird Literature, whether it is Hell or Heaven that infests or invests artistic creativity, the birth of modern ‘classical’ music and more!

“….an overwhelming, sardonically yelling, screeching, bawling, bleating, howling, piping, whinnying salvo, the mocking, exulting laughter of the Pit.”

NB: My earlier real-time review of Thomas Mann’s ‘The Magic Mountain’.
