  1. This short Swiss novel from 1842 a novella really has much to recommend it It tells a simple compelling story of how the devil, in the form of a large lethal spider, was allowed to prey upon a peaceful community, twice first through an actual pact with a proud woman, and much later after the initial evil had been contained though not eliminated through a community s complacency and the lack of a healthy respect for evil itself The novella s structure, consisting of a frame story and two i This short Swiss novel from 1842 a novella really has much to recommend it It tells a simple compelling story of how the devil, in the form of a large lethal spider, was allowed to prey upon a peaceful community, twice first through an actual pact with a proud woman, and much later after the initial evil had been contained though not eliminated through a community s complacency and the lack of a healthy respect for evil itself The novella s structure, consisting of a frame story and two internal narratives, is not only pleasing in itself, but also an ideal conveyor of the narratives c...

  3. I thought this was incredibly charming and atmospheric, despite the fact that it s essentially the sort of simple religious allegory that normally makes me run a mile The Christian symbolism is indeed the whole point the author was a nineteenth century village pastor who regarded his fiction as a kind of extended sermon And yet his sense of pacing and the detail of his descriptions just make it such a pleasure to read for all kinds of unexpected reasons.The bucolic early scenes of life in a t I thought this was incredibly charming and atmospheric, despite the fact that it s essentially the sort of simple religious allegory that normally makes me run a mile The Christian symbolism is indeed the whole point the author was a nineteenth century village pastor who regarded his fiction as...

  5. The Black Spider is my second choice for German Literature Month It was first published in German in 1842, and was written by a Swiss pastor The edition I read was translated in 1958 by H.M.Waidson There is a newer translation available, which is reputed to be much better, though I haven t read it for comparison.In many ways, The Black Spider is quite a simple religious allegorical tale, but it does have some genuinely terrifying and horrific moments T The Black Spider is my second choice for German Literature Month It was first published in German in 1842, and was written by a Swiss pastor The edition I read was translated in 1958 by H.M.Waidson There is a newer translation available, which is reputed to be much better, though I haven t read it for comparison.In many ways, The Black Spider is quite a simple religious allegorical tale, but it does have some genuinely terrifying and horrific moments The novella starts off with a charming scene of country life A village child is being baptised and we read about the ins and outs of the ritual and superstition surrounding this When one of the women in the party asks about the ugly black window frame in the otherwis...

  6. A cautionary morality tale which will be appreciated by the religious minded It s surprising that this 1842 novella feels so modern,maybe cause the elemental struggle between the forces of good evil has an evergreen,eternal aspect to it.The quaint,charming village of Emmental,reminded me of the atmosphere in Haneke s The White Ribbon in that how the diabolical is always bubbling below the surface calm.If you ve enjoyed Hawthorne s Young Goodman Brown Stephen King has called it his favou A cautionary morality tale which will be appreciated by the religious minded It s surprising that this 1842 novella feels so modern,maybe cause the elemental struggle between the forces of good evil has an evergreen,eternal aspect to it.The quaint,charming village of Emmental,reminded me of the atmosphere in Haneke s The White Ribbon in that how the diabolical is always bubbling below the surface calm.If you ve enjoyed Hawthorne s Young Goodman Brown Stephen King has called it his favourite horror story , then this is the book for you There is a lot of richness to the text a sense of historical time,class struggle,feminism,though,to be fair,the frame tale tends to drag towards the end Still,a short,enjoyable read esp.for the Halloween season.From the intro by H.M Waidson In 1949, Thomas Mann wrote that there was scarcely a work in world literature that he admiredthan The Black Spider, and its position as one of the outstanding examples of narrative fiction in the German languag...

  8. The Devil seals the promise with a kiss And when the promise is broken, the cheek where he placed his lips starts to burn A black mound forms Legs crack out of the skin And the black spider is loose An allegory, perhaps and a crackling good read.

  9. No question that this is a violent, terrible, yet entertaining, story Written in 1842, and despite reflecting attitudes common to the era about women and class, it is as scary and horrific and disgusting as any modern horror novel Baby sacrifices Large man eating venomous spiders Earthquakes Ominous lightening and thunder storms Evil, dissipated sadistic aristocrats Impoverished tortured serfs Vicious servants Pervasive smell of sulfur Priests in combat Quote from the book Christine t No question that this is a violent, terrible, yet entertaining, story Written in 1842, and despite reflecting attitudes common to the era about women and class, it is as scary and horrific and disgusting as any modern horror novel Baby sacrifices Large man eating venomous spiders Earthquakes Ominous lightening and thunder storms Evil, dissipated sadistic aristocrats Impoverished tortured serfs Vicious servants Pervasive smell of sulfur Priests in combat Quote from the book Christine tried to comfort herself, saying it wa...

  10. I have a general rule that, once I have started to read a book, I must continue with it to the end before I can claim the right to comment on it In the case of The Black Spider , I was beginning to get depressed by page 20 of this classic early nineteenth century Swiss horror novella One fifth of the tale gone and I had been treated to a lengthy, rather dull and wholesome account of a christening feast for the child of a prosperous Swiss peasant circa 1842.But Jeremias Gotthelf knows what h I have a general rule that, once I have started to read a book, I must continue with it to the end before I can claim the right to comment on it In the case of The Black Spider , I was beginning to get depressed by page 20 of this classic early nineteenth century Swiss horror novella One fifth of the tale gone and I had been treated to a lengthy,...
