New PDF release: Crepuscolo di un idolo. Smantellare le favole freudiane

Michel Onfray, coerente con sé stesso, prende di mira in questo libro una religione che, ancor più dei monoteismi del suo Trattato di ateologia, sembra dover ancora avere vita lunga e felice.

Sample text

Rayber struggles to save himself by saving Francis: “The eyes [Francis’s] were the eyes of the crazy student father, the personality was the old man’s, and somewhere between the two, Rayber’s own image was struggling to survive” (402). The fact that Francis also represents a fragment of Rayber’s guilt intensifies the schoolteacher’s struggle: Rayber sees “some horror of his dreams take shape before him” (386) in the form of Francis because the boy’s “eyes Apocalypse of Self, Resurrection of the Double 27 were not his own.

Every double with an open heart meets his shadow with a closed heart. Rayber realizes this the next day when he again approaches Francis—too late; he faces “the glint of a metal door sealed against an intruder” (417). Rayber’s despair reaches its apex when he, too, begins to hear “the voice of a stranger” (407) within. Finally rejecting Francis as double because Mason possesses the boy, Rayber creates his own inner double as a final, desperate compensation. Rayber faces the hopelessness of Tarwater’s schizoid self with a schism of his own psyche into “a violent and a rational self ” (417), an inner and outer voice.

An early review in Commentary, October 1960, by Algene Balliff, considers Tarwater’s “double” traditionally, conceiving of the boy as halfangel, half-devil, thus neglecting psychological doubles, although Balliff ’s insights regarding Rayber’s split seem sound. 5. I am indebted to Professor Chester G. Anderson’s lectures on double fictions (April 1975, the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis). 6. See Otto Rank, The Myth of the Birth of the Hero, for an analysis of how the virgin and holy births are connected in myth and pseudo-history as well as in childhood fantasies.
