Schopenhauer in the Air

Read by Nemo

(3.8 stars; 3 reviews)

Sadakichi Hartmann was an art and literary critic who wrote plays, short stories and several volumes of poetry. Hauntingly beautiful, these seven early short stories dance with themes of beauty and death, love and the soul, and existence itself. As found in the book's biographical note: sometimes a great author tears the mask from life, so we may look at the truth of beauty. Summary by Nemo. (1 hr 13 min)

a gem

(5 stars)

Beautifully crafted stories, almost poetic, involving Schopenhauer's philosophy of pessimism and disillusion. May not make you happy but will certainly make you think. Read with gentle consideration.
