    Gone the dense urban menace of his first two novels, replaced by a bucolic seeming small city setting I kept thinking Bavaria with a river winding through, and the river by some weird twist passing between the houses of the two principle characters, Christopher Ophelia, who will throughout the novel enact, consciously and unconsciously, a transcendent union Yes, Ophelia drowns, but that s no obstacle to Christopher s continuing relationship with her as Meyrink here is concerned almost entirely with his bricolage of esoteric theories of soul growth and ultimate Gnostic like surmounting of gross predatory physicality, with most action taking place internally as related by his typically didactic characters, though the talkiness is much tolerable and fitting here Reviews synopses squibs of the book invariably mention the Medusa s head of the world as the foe antagonist in this book, but this Medusa s head is not only the gross predatory physicality of the world but also the whole spiritualist subculture that brings unsavory spirits into contact with the living Meyrink clearly aspired to some sort of complicated purity as a path to self realization, and in The White Dominican he offers his clearest description of his spiritual philosophical monstrosity yet Apparently there are people who treat him as a teacher, but I d like to see them actually put into practice his weirdness, which involves long dead ancestors speaking to you through your root to complete the circle, simultaneous with an inner reunion with your dead feminine half paving the way for a hermaphroditic apotheosis.

    This novel was the perfect blend of occult fiction and a Hermann Hesse style Bildungsroman.

    No s si es que sea demasiado occidental y mi desconocimiento casi absoluto de las filosof as orientales influy , pero ten a tiempo sin aburrirme tanto con un libro Herman Hesse tambi n tiene novelas profundamente metaf sicas, pero no son tan sopor feras como El dominico blanco Ya ni ganas tengo de leer El Golem, que es un eterno pendiente tras haber visto la pel cula muda y haberla disfrutado tanto.

    Los libros de Meyrink te transportan a pocas antiguas, a ciudades perdidas y barrios estrechos y magicos donde habitan personas extra as y espirituales con conocimientos fuera de este mundo Sus novelas siempre son una mezcla de muchas doctrinas esot ricas.

    Me agrado esta obra de Meyrink para ser el primer trabajo que abordo de este escritor, es un texto facil y la lectura de dicha novela es fluida ademas de entretenida Sin duda tomare en cuenta otros titulos de G.Meyrink para leer.

    Me cost horrores los mismos que sufre el protagonista, por momentos terminar esta sopor fera historia Creo que ya no estoy para este tipo de literarura Me pas con Lovecraft y me sucedi nuevamente con Meyrink, de quien esperaba otra cosa.
