"within the ego "
the ego tradition from a strange tale by Rampo Edogawa about a struggling novelist whose nearly identical but now rich boyhood friend dies Said writer decides to exhume is dead friend s Absolute Genius Take The Literary genius Take the literary of Edogawa Ranpo an absolutely dearly beloved favorite and then turn it into manga drawn by the most fucked up eroguro artist alive Maruo Suehiro and you are guaranteed to ave a winner I find myself proud to Beyond Words: Daily Readings in the ABC's of Faith (Buechner, Frederick) have this one on my bookshelf Spoiler Alert no wait I guess not it s in the title after all right there front and center Panorama Island specifically the various Panoramas of various World Fairs of a century or so ago and thus the island s great secret is blownno matter Strange Tale is less about secrets waiting to surprise you and about luxuriating in morbid obsessions and a decadent pursuit of pleasure and beauty we follow an eccentric Poe worshipping writer who takes direct inspiration from that author s The Premature Burial and decides to assume the identity ofis recently deceased and fabulously wealthy college chum it s a grim piece of work that bit of graveyard business and once The Eatonville Anthology his new identity is secured realizingis deepest dream becomes possible The TM Techniue An intro Transcendental Meditation Teachings Maharishi Mahesh YOgi Arkana he shall construct a pleasure world on a little island where nature s infinite beauty and all the possible permutations of sexuality are celebrated a decidedly excessive and very adult wonderland a utopia by way of King Ludwig II of Bavariaa teensy bit of murder mystery thrown in at the end to add the sort of spice that Poe would admire specifically the Poe of the death of a beautiful woman is unuestionably the most poetical topic in the world the result is a chillingly beautiful and sick scene that really surprised me this book is an adaptation of a novel by Japanese writer Tar Hirai underis pseudonym Edogawa Rampo the pseudonym itself being an adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe Das Glücksbüro how circularbut sharing the stage is the brilliant and very perverted artist Suehiro Maruo who is the entire reason I bought this pricey tome it was well worth the expenseis line work is a model of cleanly clarity which is a striking way to illustrate a series of images that shift suddenly from the morbidly grotesue to the dully prosaic albeit still gorgeous to the eerily ambiguous and then back again and all of that is before we even get to Panorama Island itself where the artist really outdoes imself with spellbinding vista after vista a veritable panorama of beauty and of course creepily decadent excess I wouldn t want to live there but I sure wouldn t mind a short visitS. Redirects the family’s wealth to is own perverse aims On a remote and mysterious island Daughter of Moloka'i he builds forimself a playground of edonistic excess replete with decadent feasts orgies and dark secrets Stunning artwork by master manga artist Suehiro Maruo deftly illustrates this Japanese pulp classic in lush detail Maruo adapted this manga from a novella by Edogawa Rampo the Godfather of Japanese detective fiction Suehi. ,
