Translated by Annabel Lee. Published with original paintings of the magnificent, menacing North Sea by Edda Publishing, Stockholm. A bewildering story, written in 1953 and permeated by the devastation of the war. A visit among friends turns from congenial conversation to hallucinations of the Fenris Wolf, Ragnarok, the dead and other myths and sagas. The descriptions ring true to being the kind experienced on LSD, but there are other nightmares and dreams at work. Like Jünger’s work in general, it is not ‘enlightening’ -he is never didactic. Unlike most of his other work, this story is darker, murkier, and more psychedelic.
