  • Fantazius Mallare By Ben Hecht, An excerpt Fantazius Mallare considered himself mad because he was unable to behold in the meaningless gesturings of time, space and evolution a dramatic little pantomime adroitly centered about the routine of his existence He was a silent looking man with black hair and an aquiline nose His eyes were lifeless because they paid no homage to the world outside him.When heAn excerpt Fantazius Mallare considered himself mad because he was unable to behold in the meaningless gesturings of time, space and evolution a dramatic little pantomime adroitly centered about the routine of his existence He was a silent looking man with black hair and an aquiline nose His eyes were lifeless because they paid no homage to the world outside him.When he was thirty five years old he lived alone high above a busy part of the town He was a recluse His black hair that fell in a slant across his forehead and the rigidity of his eyes gave him the appearance of a somnambulist He found life unnecessary and submitted to it without curiosity.His ideas were profoundly simple The excitement of his neighborhood, his city, his country and his world left him unmoved He found no diversion in interpreting them A friend had once asked him what he thought of democracy This was during a great war being waged in its behalf Mallare replied Democracy is the honeymoon of stupidity.

    1. This is a very unusual book which is most beautifully written Let me tell you some facts about it first The copy you download free from is 832 of 2000 which were sold by subscription in 1922 They included 10 woodcuts which were beautiful and edgy These woodcuts have not been included in the edition, for the same reason I think that the U.S government banned this book in the same year The dedication alone is amazing It is insulting to almost every recognizable religious group, business tycoon, ex [...]

    2. plenty of explicit sex fact, this book was suppressed for quite a few years but, what struck me was the beginning it was really disturbing in fact, i think that it was perhaps the most venomous, hate filled, manic depressive, pathological thing i ve ever read if ever there was a book that could actually make someone WANT to commit suicide, this one is itis is the same guy who also wrote His Girl Friday and Some Like It Hot s, FOUR STARS i really did like this one.

    3. Ben Hecht, the brilliant writer of screenplays including, but in no way limited to, Scarface , His Girl Friday , Notorious , and Angels Over Broadway , wrote this novella 1922, which included ten darkly beautiful woodcut illustrations, only to run into censorship It s not difficult to see why this book had a hard time coming to print, properly, until relatively recently the opening pages tear to pieces every religion known to man, the protagonist smacks a woman around that he has in keeping, and [...]

    4. I found my copy at a used book store I was taken by the illustration on the back of a man in fatigued coitus with a tree shaped like a woman I suppose that must chafe The illustrations in the book are sinewy and angular Although eye catching they have very little to do with the plot.Fantazius Mallare is a misanthropic, reclusive artist at war with reason He decides to track down a woman as a means to achieve omnipotence The results don t go as planned, and he is unable to distinguish between the [...]

    5. A bit brutal, but a great immersion of Man s perspective of Woman as object, even in her use as muse a good study of the inherent misogyny of social conditioning especially in composition of personal judgment lending to the condemnation of senses and sensuality as feminine weakness sacrilege and the damages wrought due to disregard of the Female, resulting primarily in the execution of inhumane impulses and a social schizophrenia on the part of participants.
