Download e-book for iPad: Dantes Inferno I: Der Astroführer durch die Unterwelt, Frey by Akron Frey ,Voenix

By Akron Frey ,Voenix

Dantes Lebenswerk beschreibt über mehrere hundert Seiten eine Wanderung durch das Jenseits: Eintritt in die Hölle, Gang durchs Fegefeuer und Aufstieg ins Paradies. Im Laufe der Wanderung ergeben sich viele Begegnungen, die ein Bild der damaligen Zeit (13./14. Jahrhundert) reflektieren. Lokal- und Zeitgeschichte stehen neben Gedanken zur Mythologie, Philosophie, Theologie, Kultur oder Astrologie und zeigen eine packende, bisweilen erschütternde Welt.
Akron folgt in seiner "Göttlichen Komödie" dem gleichen Weg durch die "menschlichen Höllen", wobei er sich des weitverbreiteten Modells der Astrologie bedient und dieses epische Schauspiel zu einem okkulten Sachbuch-Roman verdichtet. Akron selbst sieht diese Auseinandersetzung mit der "Divina Commedia" als sein bislang wichtigstes und tiefgründigstes Werk an. Es bebildert den Aufbruch an den ältesten Bestimmungsort der Menschheit: zu Geburt und Tod, Liebe und Krieg, Hoffnung und Untergang des Lebens. Weil jeder Hölle eine astrologische Konstellation zugrunde liegt (Sonne in Löwe, Mond in Krebs, Merkur in Stier usw.), hält der Leser einerseits ein esoterisches Sachbuch in Händen, dem ein ausführliches Registerverzeichnis zugeordnet ist (Hölle, Sünder, Disposition, Schuld, Strafe, Lösung). Andererseits erschliesst sich ihm auf der erzählerischen Ebene eine wahre Fundgrube esoterischen Wissens, die den bezugsetzenden Verstand in die vielfältigen Welten seiner Seele hineinzieht und unerbittlich auf die verborgene Innenwelt aller Dinge hinweist.

Après un chagrin d’amour dévastateur, Léo a tourné le dos à des études brillantes pour devenir barman à Paris. Et pendant quarante ans, il a écouté ses consumers lui raconter leurs joies et leurs peines, jusqu’à en oublier l. a. vacuité de sa propre lifestyles.

EXTRAIT

Où avait goé le bourdonnement continu qui l’habitait ? Ces voix qui parlaient de ruptures, de malheurs, de joies, de soucis d’argent ? Ces confessions innombrables reçues derrière son bar, pendant tant d’années ? Léo servait les consommations, essuyait les verres, rangeait son comptoir. Et il écoutait. Ses jours avaient été remplis à ras bord de l. a. vie des autres. C’était tellement plus uncomplicated, plus confortable. Sa propre life reléguée à l’arrière de l. a. scène, parmi les accessoires inemployés. Empoussiérée. Inoffensive. Tous les sentiments, tous les états d’âme que peut éprouver l’être humain, il les avait recueillis comme une manne nourricière.
Quand l’établissement avait été vendu, il avait craint les heures creuses, l. a. perte des habitudes qui jalonnaient son quotidien. Mais il n’avait pas pensé que ce vécu grouillant audedans de lui, ce chuchotement rassurant qui l’occupait depuis si longtemps le déserterait. sure que ce cinéma everlasting lui resterait fidèle. Qu’était-il arrivé ? Il possédait une réserve inépuisable d’anecdotes, de confidences, d’histoires gaies ou tragiques, de détails scabreux. Pas besoin de monter sur les planches pour que s’épanouissent ses dons d’acteur. Dans l. a. seconde, il endossait un rôle et le jouait à l. a. perfection. Se mettre dans los angeles peau du personnage, rire et pleurer, murmurer des mots d’amour ou cracher des insultes. Il n’avait qu’à évoquer Fred ou Jacquot, Ricou-la-poisse ou Angèle. Il avait le choix. En quarante ans, les imbroglios les plus enchevêtrés, les drames les plus sordides et les vaudevilles les plus extravagants lui avaient été confiés. Ce trésor lui appartenait.
