Ernst Junger - A Portrait is a book about Ernst Junger (1895-1998), Germany's greatest author since Goethe. This is a popular Junger biography for the English speaking world, a personal portrait painted by an avid Junger reader. The book starts out with a thorough biography of Junger's life. Then there's a look at the controversial sides of the man, plus a discussion of Junger's role as an outsider, mentioning something about the reception of his works today. After a look at Junger's books on war there's a survey of central Junger works such as The Adventurous Heart, On the Marble Cliffs, Heliopolis and Eumeswil. Moreover there are chapters on Junger's way of looking at art, history and philosophy, on Junger as a Science Fiction author and comparisons between Junger and other authors, dead or alive. In the introduction to Ernst Junger - A Portrait the author says: My aim in this study has been to look at what Junger represents rather than at what he is, in this respect striving to highlight the fruitful aspects of his work, the neglected sides such as the esotericism and the idealism, the vitalism and the life-affirming traits. At the same time I don't deny that Junger in the 20s was a radical nationalist dealing with fire; I have chapters covering that too. Wishing to write a book that's simple and hands-on I sport "simple but not facile" as my ideal. About the Author: Born in the north of Sweden in 1965, Lennart Svensson took a BA in Indology in Uppsala 1998. While working as a freelance writer he has published novels like Antropolis and Camouflage. Ernst Junger - A Portrait is his debut in English.
