9780141186184: Mysteries (Penguin Twentieth-Century Classics)

First published in 1892, Mysteries revolves around a small Norwegian coastal town turned on end by the sudden appearance of Johan Nagel, the prototypical social outcast -- a wanderer, dropout, and eternal foe of the establishment. Nagel becomes the catalyst that brings to the surface all the hidden impulses, concealed thoughts, and dark instincts of the townspeople. For weeks he disrupts the community with his eccentricities, only to disappear just as suddenly as he arrived.

Book Description Penguin Group (NZ), New Zealand, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 196 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Mysteries (1892) is the story of Johan Nilsen Nagel, a mysterious stranger who suddenly turns up in a small Norwegian town one summer-and just as suddenly disappears. Nagel is a complete outsider, a sort of modern Christ treated in a spirit of near parody. He condemns the politics and thought of the age, brings comfort to the insulted and injured and gains the love of two women suggestive of the biblical Mary and Martha. But there is a sinister side of him: in his vest he carries a vial of Prussic acid. The novel creates a powerful sense of Nagel s stream of thought, as he increasingly withdraws into the torture chamber of his own subconscious psyche. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780141186184
