Summary (From the publisher):

Jahnn at his darkest: man is portrayed as the toy of supernatural powers, where his only certainty is a bodily existence which, in turn, is blindly bound to the laws of growth, death and decay and procreation - the major themes of Jahnnís writing. But in the compassion demonstrated by the novelís central character, Jahnn points to the one possibility to gain some kind of liberty: turning oneís back on conventional morals and embracing creation in its fulness.
