As I was reading through Jakob von Gunten I wondered what genre it belonged to Was it some kind of memoir Was it a coming of age story Was it a love story Was it perhaps something totally new a genre I d never met before Or was it rather something utterly ancient as ancient as the stories of the Old Testament Ancient yes that was the predominant feeling I was left with at the end though the writing has nothing biblical about it whatsoever being extremely lighthearted and jolly in tone which is one of the many paradoxes of this short novel In fact Jacob the narrator speaks constantly in paradoxes he tells of a school where no learning takes place and of a feared principal who is really rather meek Jacob sees beauty in the oddest of places even in the idiosyncrasies of headboy Kraus I do like people who get angry Kraus gets angry on the slightest pretext That is so beautiful so noble The sinner must always be faced with the person outraged or else something would be missing The mumbling of a grumbler is lovelier to me than the murmuring of a woodland stream Jacob expounds on the virtues of compliance to rules in one breath while telling us that he loves running on the stairs in the next To be supposed not to do something is so alluring sometimes that one can t help doing it Therefore I love so deeply every compulsion because it allows me to take joy in what is illicit If there were no commandments no duties in the world I would die starve be crippled by boredom I provoke the frowning law to anger a little afterwards I make the effort to pacify it Although it was written than one hundred years ago each word each sentence in this slim book has the freshness of new snow though perhaps new snow on which a happy dog has left a yellow stain because Jacob s sparkling words are always sprinkled with little ironies Sly and knowing people are to me an unspeakable abomination How nice Peter is in precisely this point His being tall so tall that he could crack in two is good but even better is the goodness of heart which keeps whispering to him that he is a cavalier and has the looks of a noble rake The entire book is a parade of seeming contradictions Nothing can excite me so deeply as the sight and smell of what is good and just Jacob tells us before revealing that nothing pleases me than to give a completely false image of myself to people for whom I have made a place in my heartThus for example I imagine that it would be unspeakably lovely to die with the terrible knowledge that I have offended whomsoever I love the most and have filled them with bad opinions of me Nobody will understand that or only someone who can sense tremblings of beauty in defiance Those tremblings of beauty in defiance reminded me of the biblical story of Lucifer before the Fall whose heart according to Ezekiel was lifted up because of thy beauty but who had become corrupted by reason of thy brightness I imagined Jacob as a latter day Lucifer shining very brightly among his duller fellows But unlike Lucifer he succeeds in seducing the Father figure of his world completley and causes him to lose his bearings so that instead of rejecting Jacob and casting him out he casts out all the good pupilsangels instead even the rule abiding and very fundamentalist Archangel KrausSo the story made me think about what the JudeoChristianIslamic world would be like if we d never had a Lucifer figure to demonise and if the deity had presented itself as just as human and weak as the rest of usImageview spoilerWilliam Blake s Lucifer before the Fall hide spoiler

I would wish it on no one to be meOnly I am capable of bearing myselfTo know so much to have seen so much andTo say nothing just about nothingWritten by Robert Walser as uoted by JM Coetzee in The Genius of Robert Walser Those dates there at the top of this review tell me that I took an inexplicable two and a half weeks to read this novella of a mere 164 pages At the back of my edition I find a schematic overview of Walser s biography You know the style a date and where he was in that year 1892 95 apprenticeship in the Biel branch of the Berner Kantonalbank 22nd October 1894 death of his mother Dreams of a career as an actor1895April August in Basel Living with relatives Employed as secretary with a haulier and a bankFrom September in Stuttgart Living with his brother in a single man s hostel Working for the publishing company Cotta End of his hopes of a Thespian career1896 until the end of September in Stuttgart Returned to Switzerland on footI have to check to see as the crow flies taking his destination as Z rich that is just over 100 miles on roads and pathways closer to 140 Probably around a week How could it possibly take me longer to read 164 pages than for him to walk 140 miles Walking the firm ground eaten up by the rhythm of pacing feet The smell of wet grass the sound of cows tearing green stalks rain on your face the wind in your ears Jakob von Gunten offers the opposite of such pleasures Apart from being inside a claustrophobic institution one that purports to be a training school for valets but offers no instruction employs teachers who are asleep or dead or only appear to be dead or have turned to stone in any case the pupils can get nothing from them apart from the feeling that life here is arrested that this is a kind of ante room to life a state of infinite waiting apart from all that there is no firm narrative ground underfoot uagmires erupt the passing landscape bleaches out at the corner of my eye and turns into the stuff of nightmare Jakob von Gunten is one of the most unsettling narrators I have ever come across He is a nothing one of the large round attractive attractive zeros eine reizende kugelrunde Null that the Institut Benjamenta is so keen to produce a master of self effacement he has no ties of any kind with family or social class or friends or work colleagues He apparently exists only in his relationships with the other inmates of the institute and his relations with them are characterised by a disconcerting mix of condescension and admiration along with the odd swirl of inappropriate intimacy Schacht for example Jakob likes talking to Schacht He seems to understand everything you say to him and he himself from time to time says something significant And then he complains uite often Jakob loves that in a conversation because it gives him the opportunity to look at him and feel deep heartfelt sympathy with him and this is where it shifts where the ground begins to move because the German word Mitleid can also mean pity and Schacht when you look at him has something pitiable about him even when he is not complaining Schacht has soul And because Jakob can masuerade as a sympathetic listener Schacht even betrays his shameful secret he has a disease the sort of disreputable disease that he hopes Jakob will be discreet about and indeed Jakob promises him on his word of honour that he will keep silent on this matter to reassure him And then asks him to show him the diseased partOr Kraus Kraus is not a uick learner But he will make a very good servant he has the right air of humility and acuiescence unmatched incomparable He is bound to be employed by the best sort a Countess at the least If it weren t for his unsightly spots Really very unfortunate Poor Kraus Mich zum Beispiel w rden die Punkte die ihn verunzieren nicht im mindesten hindern ihn zu k ssen wenn es darauf ank me For my part those spots that spoil his looks would not prevent me from kissing him if it was necessary Under what circumstances would it be necessary I wonder Jakob does go out To watch with euanimity how the Polish waitress swindles him out of his only cash to walk in the anonymous crowds of nameless nothings that turns for him into a grim Grimm fairy tale world of dwarves and monsters trams like boxes of people omnibuses like huge insects The inhumanity of the masses 1909 an early witness to the alienating effect of city lifeHe visits his brother Yes he has a brother But his world is alien too Jakob mimics the behaviour of society with not a little talent How mean is that I had to take a break from this nightmare There seemed to be no destination for this journey and I was teetering swaying insecure It is impossible to read is this irony or sarcasm Is Jakob breathtakingly impudent or is he worryingly compliant Sometimes there is a glimpse of true nobility of the soul Or is he saying that nobility of the soul is a sham Hard to tell That tone of cheerful acuiescence in an unacceptable destiny Self regulation Self denial Self annihilation And yet forcing imposing himself on others Forcing the director of the institute to take on some kind of authority Feeding off others a parasite that ultimately will kill its host It opened chasms of horror within We are the hollow menWe are the stuffed menBut Jakob maintains that they vibrate
