Novel since The Tin Drum Until the very last page when Abel meets his mystic fate in the collapsing ruins of the Third Reich it shocks us dazzles us and above all holds us spellboun. The ogre of the title is Abel Tiffauges a French mechanic who first appears a kind of autistic naif strange rather than frightening in his obsessions or perversions It begins in France 1938 in the years before Hitler s invasion then as the war progresses the setting moves eastward into a winter world of horror and ultimately transcendence which I admit doesn t tell you much It s an unusual demanding novel to my mind a work of genius unlike anything I ve ever read including the other great eually odd novels of Tournier Gemini Friday The Four Wise MenNot a book for the weak hearted

An international bestseller and winner of the Prix Goncourt France's most prestigious literary award The Ogre is a masterful tale of innocence perversion and obsession It follows th. At a high point in a pivotal relationship formed during his refectory days in an alien French boy s school Abel Tiffauges is told the gruesome apocryphal story of the Baron des Adrets newfound awareness of cadent euphoria by the obese enigma Nestor The crescendo is reached when the latter murmurs in coda that There s probably nothing moving in a man s life than the accidental discovery of his own perversion Just how much truth this observation bore is revealed to Abel many years later when he has mutated from a bunched up undersized boy into a hulking giant of a man bearing a wounded child in his massive arms he is lapped by beatific paroxysms of phoric joy much akin to that experienced by a pair of historic personages St Christopher when he similarly performed as steed for a riverine Christ and Alfonso d Albuuerue a conuistador in peril of death at the hands of the boundless sea who perched a lad atop his shoulders in the desperate hope that the youth s innocence would serve to cleanse him of sin and turn the eye of God toward him in a favorable light Would that there were enough innocence to mount and shrive the twentieth century an epoch when perversion obsession and desire freed themselves from all restraints and ran amok amid a continent watered with blood The Ogre is a beautifully strange novel alternately narrated by and about the remarkable Abel Tiffauges a Frenchman so unlike his countrymen a gentle giant who firmly believes himself an eternal and potent natural force primordial in origin descended across the mists of time from the original Abel the nomad brother of the sedentary Cain who in a pattern to be repeated ad nauseam throughout history s pages was murdered by his sibling for his hateful and peregrine individuality Tiffauges interacts with the material world only in a routine and perfunctory manner uietly going about his solitary business while experiencing a rich and eccentric inner life in which systems and symbols portents and preordained fates illuminate every event in their explicatory light Even as the apocalypse of the Second World War thunders down upon Europe and Tiffauges is swept from a Parisian suburban garage to Teutonic castles amidst the marshy forests and plains of East Prussia he is central to this avenging maelstrom a locus for the melancholy loam of Prussian nature yet completely apart from it a separate entity to the daily suffering and slaughter that plays out around him Finding in the war the means to pursue his child focussed obsessions Abel calmly sets about a phoric existence luxuriating in its anarchic bliss until the diabolical inversion that always threatens the innocent poisons the roots of all his fantasiesMichel Tournier has penned a marvel here a haunting uirky story that lingers in the mind like a disturbing dream The fascinating symbolism and ego mythology of Abel s uniue and contentedly lonely mind after having spread to saturate every event and path of the story are swiftly drawn back in a taut synthesis for the perfectly realized final pages The dialectic between innocence as a guileless love of being of man of life and its malignant inversion purity a satanic hatred of all that innocence cherishes holds place of primacy along with those of freshness versus corruption chaste desire against lust and the boundaries of amorality Abel imagines himself an innocent but why then his need to be anointed by that of a child Abel s immense capacity for sacrifice and compassion exist right alongside his utter indifference to the suffering of the majority of humanity who don t conform to his ideals the children he so gently carries have been cruelly ripped from the arms of their parents and a mother s tears move him no than the death throes of the Third Reich Unrealized guilt yet contains the potentiality for redemption that is immanent in culpability Not until the horrific joke played out by the malignant streams of fate is revealed to him in all the fullness of its macabre glory does Abel finally understand the price of phoria and truly behold the Erl King s sovereignty the inescapable fate in store for the Ogre whether in the pellucid realm of fairy tale or the grim theatre of reality

E passage of strange gentle Abel Tiffauges from submissive schoolboy to ogre of the Nazi school at the castle of Kaltenborn taking us deeper into the dark heart of fascism than any. Since The Ogre is a book obsessed with taxonomy heraldry classification of all kinds I ll start by saying that the author MIchel Tournier most reminds me of is Thomas Mann Mann s playful ironic fictions seem to have fallen out of use these days I for one can t get over Guy Davenport s comparison of him to James Joyce Mann imposes meaning Joyce finds it Mann looks for weakness in strength Joyce for strength in weakness Mann s novels illustrate ideas Joyce s return ideas to their origins but reading The Ogre I was reminded again of how incredibly fun it is to move around in a novel whose reserves are charged rather than sapped by a sense of ideal forms At times for all its storytelling and scene setting and narrative capability this book seems to be of an ecology than even the most experimental nouveaux romans Indeed by the end of it I got the sense that Tournier is not just system obsessed but system haunted and that the pages upon pages detailing the main character s private universe were put there as a way to make us see how a modern day Crusoe that is a person who feels completely cut off from human connection might go about surviving Loneliness This book is very lonely It is also I think a testament and warning to anyone who ever spent a year and a half trying to learn Elvish followed by Dark Elvish Klingon and probably because it was the most strange and made up sounding of the languages that my high school offered Russian What happens when the world you make in your head takes over Or to put it even handedly I hope How do we light the mentalemotional candelabra inside us without eclipsing the very real and conseuential world outside us How do we keep from destroyingbeing destroyed In places Tournier s book may be in a little too much of a hurry the answer these uestions to follow the arrow of its logic I wanted of the tide pools But the last fifty pages or so are legitimately visionary and horrible an inverted King Matt the First and worth the momentum
