What happens when these people we've created don't act like we've expected? Perhaps she has not even understood the things I have told her. Its features were obliterated by the hands except for the mouth which was flung open in a skull-like laugh. Why it is not a classic is befuddling. She is beautiful but without sense. Tell me, are you mine?

This, she fancies, is love. Rather than commit suicide, his doting madness dictates that he must revolt against all evidence of life that exists outside himself. A novel of decadence and mystic existentialism, Fantazius Mallare is a story of a mad recluse—a genius sculptor and painter who is at war with reason. Mallare regarded her blankly for a moment. And [Seventy-three] because I am mad I fancy myself awake.

Around us in every direction were dreadful, nauseating figures; two-headed things with faces drooping at the ends of wilted stalks; creatures with boneless limbs and bodies like pouches; creatures with swollen and pendulous heads riveting them to the earth; animate snail-like masses of flesh, hair-matted and mucous-covered; thick, serpentlike bodies that struggled to stand erect; half-formed heads that raised themselves above appalling disfigurements. She is very beautiful that way. Although I have explained the thing to her clearly. Apologies if this happened, because human users outside of Germany who are making use of the eBooks or other site features should almost never be blocked. Mallare smiled.

Fantazius Mallare, a mysterious oath book

Still I know it exists. He destroys all of his work and then seeks out a woman who will devote herself to his Omnipotence. I am the mirror and she is an image alive in me. My mind closes like a darkness over the world but I enjoy myself walking amid insane houses, staring at windows that look like drunken octagons, observing lamp posts that simper with evil, promenading fan shaped streets that scribble themselves like arithmetic over my face.

Her hands reached out. Standing slowly, Rita waited. They assumed strange postures as they passed. The mania for possession—that most refined of all instincts—the most heroic of insanities!

Vermilion fabrics covered a long couch against the wall.

Fantazius Mallare

He had become aware that his master was acting strangely. At night she slept alone dreaming of the sound of his voice. Mallare could easily walk from the pages if this were the '20s and say something witty or obnoxious or politically incorrect.

A gold band was around it. My hands feel tired. Is he human and fleshed out? His descent into madness begins immediately as he explains his disillusionment and ennui with the current world and man's egoism.

Oh yes! He felt himself the center of life and it became his nature to revolt against all evidences of life that existed outside himself. They hint at nights of critical terrors. As I talk your outlines grow luminous. He admires the tints of hair.

Out of them she gleaned fugitive meanings as one recognizes for an instant familiar faces in a passing crowd. Is our next step in evolution to be Gods? She would remain with the wagons, helping to cook and wash. The writing, however, becomes more labored in appearance as if the letters of words were now decorations in themselves.
